When running a high end gallery purchasing is a major part of the daily business.
Michael Backman as a prominent London dealer is regularly offered large estate collections and makes many, many purchases each week. These purchases are often mixed collections of great art objects including items suited to the London gallery, among those collections are items which are less suited to the Michael Backman Gallery catalogue.
When I first joined Michael and Eddie as a consultant in the Mayfair Gallery, we discussed the objects among Michael’s collection acquisitions which were not selected to be offered for sale via the gallery. Leading to the concept of the Ethnic Antiques Website.
These beautiful pieces are perfect for emerging and established collectors,who want to be assured of good provenance and accurately described pieces to add to their collection. Each piece has been handled and appraised by Michael Backman and Sarah Corbett, we both pride ourselves on good research and integrity in the field. We also research the market place to offer sound pricing structures for all items.
We want these objects to be accessible and loved, we want the field of purchasing to be transparent and dynamic. Our plan to achieve this is simple; the objects will be offered on the Ethnic Antiques website with concise but sound descriptions, images and competitive pricing. We will then hold flash sales via our facebook page on a bimonthly basis, offering substantial discounts on a selection of the pieces. To take part in these sales please ensure that you like and follow our Ethnic Antiques facebook page.
To welcome you all to our new website we will be holding a fantastic Launch Promotion via facebook please visit our facebook page to take part in the launch event.
Our aim is art for all!
Michael, Eddie and Sarah.
