...... *Major Antiquities Galleries and Auction Houses often pay up to $50,000/month rent. Physical galleries must also pay staff salaries to wait on customers. In addition auction houses and many galleries regularly issue expensive printed catalogs. All of these very considerable costs must be passed on to their customers. In contrast our overhead is extremely low. We maintain no physical gallery and issue no printed catalogs. And we maintain only a minimal part time staff. Thus we are able to offer the same fine quality to our customers at much lower prices! Our goal is to provide the highest quality items at the lowest possible prices.
