About Us

The dealership Ancient Relics, dealing in old world antiquites, precolumbian art and historical collectables was founded in 1998 and has traded online continuously since 2004. During this time we have sold thousands of unique and fascinating items to collectors and institutions worldwide. We take great care to research the objects we offer, always practise due diligence in acquiring items and pay special attention to provenance, so you can buy from us with confidence.

Antiquities can be surprisingly modestly priced and offer a fascinating variety to those interested in the ancient world. For some commonly asked questions on collecting antiquities please click the Collecting Antiquities FAQ link in the menu bar above.

Please note we are a mail order business only and have no retail premises.

Under no circumstances can the liability of Ancient Relics exceed the purchase price of an individual item. All items are sent on fourteen day approval and all come fully described with a Certificate of Authenticity.
