Our partners in transport

The precious, sensitive and unique antique objects that you purchase in our gallery deserve the very best. After they have been packaged with the greatest possible care, they are given into the hands of reliable carriers to ensure a safe passage to your home. We work exclusively with FedEx and DHL with whom we have a very good experience.

For shipments inside the EU we use either DHL Parcel or FedEx. And for all our export shipments we exclusively ship with FedEx.

Available shipping options

We provide economical Standard Shipping Europe and Express Economy Shipping to more than 40 European countries and to the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries using FedEx International Economy or DHL Parcel (inside the EU only) services. With both partners we contracted attractive rates, which allows us to offer our shipping services for a reasonable price.

Optionally Express Priority Shipping is available to destinations outside Europe, offering a shorter transit time than Express Economy Shipping.

Shipping costs

We offer shipping services at a very reasonable rate. For many destinations worldwide, the shipping costs will be displayed in your shopping cart after entering your address. In case no shipping costs are available for your destination, please contact us to provide you with a quote for the shipping costs.

When will we ship your order?

After completion of your order, and receipt of your payment, we will start with the packaging of your order as soon as possible and deliver it to the transporter. Usually this takes up to 2 working days.

Import and Customs

We add the necessary documents to allow a smooth transfer through the customs department in your country. Also we mention the appropriate HS tariff number for customs: 9706 00 00 (antiquities more than 100 years old). For the USA this ensures that you will not need to pay any import tax. In many other countries you will also not need to pay any import tax or are eligible for a lower tax rate. But please consult your local customs for the exact rules. Additional handling fees for customs clearance may be charged to you by the transport company.
