Buying Antique Furniture in Argentina
Topic: Personal Shopper Tour
The Sharp eye: Argentine Art, antiques, collectibles and design by the hand of Bob Frassinetti. Read more about me, Press here:Bob Frassinetti in Buenos Aires, Argentina.


We pointed out in a variety of articles the fact that Buenos Aires is becoming to be the Mecca for world wide antique, art, collectibles and design dealers from all over the world for the profitable exchange rate as well as the broad variety of alternatives. Indeed the local advantages put buyers in a very favorable situation.
However there are some important aspects of these sorts of hunts and purchases that should be carefully considered in order to achieve that win-win situation.
Having a sharp eye and knowing in detail the style of items and objects are the key words in this equation.
Falsifications, intended ageing of contemporary objects to give them that “antique” feel, poorly restored original pieces are some of the down sights that can be found in the rich local market that should be specially left aside.
This is an insightful tip for our readers, in no means is a threat or a pull back in our previous statements on the Argentine antique world, it’s just an insightful piece of advice for world wide buyers in order for them to reach that win-win situation so favorable and achievable if proceeding with care and patience.
Copycats are all over the globe, the finest antique centers in the world such as New York, London, Paris, Rome and Tokyo have them and it’s something we, art dealers of the world, have to live together with. The finest and most precise weapon against this crime is knowledge and as French say m?tier, this means knowing the biz.
One piece of advice is to inspection carefully the objects, having good advisees, requiring insightful data on the items in questions and checking them with specialists.
Another tip we can share with you, our loyal reader and fellow antique lover, is that if indeed suspicion is good; going over the board with this uneasy feel can be a lousy companion. There’s no a specific style of market that should be avoided, for example, fairs and off the path markets are hidden treasure locations in which true gems can be found within the “junk”, and some pretty looking shops in sophisticated locations might even be working out their own false objects.
Again, the road to a good purchase is m?tier.
Our lei motive is to work out the business as you would at home, asking, showing, looking and scrutinize the way you’re used to.

Argentina has a great and up growing market for antiques and it should be exploited to its highest most potential, but always looking after your interests.

Art Dealer "personal" shopper in Buenos Aires
Topic: Personal Shopper Tour
Your helping hand in Buenos Aires; Why we only work for the buyer:

Art Dealer personal shopper and antiques hunting is a customized service just for the buyer.
It is our belief that an upfront clear work ethic is the stepping stone for a sustainable and profitable business.
When a foreign or local buyer hires our service we work only on behalf of our client’s interests, this means that we’ll provide not only the best available contacts, articles, objects and items, but also that we’ll work out the best possible deals in their purchases. In this sense, it would be contradictory if we would charge the shop any sorts of commissions or fees.
The traditional procedure within the local community of antiquarians is to receive referral fees of up to 10% from fellow antiquarians on customers. We do not charge these fees either. For as we stated above we provide a full service to our clients –the buyer, not the seller-.
Within the local market with a proper negotiation and direct business discount prices in large and medium purchases can be lowered up to a 40% on the base price, indeed working on behalf of the financial interests of our clients.
Our customized attention allows us to apply this work strategy and ethic as finely and profitable working for a large art dealer company as well as individual collectors who wish to enhance and enlarge their private collections.
This is the spirit within our customized service, and as we stated above the stepping stone for it lays on the fact that Art Dealer is a ground based company that has over 15 years’ experience and a straight forward work ethic.

Interested in buying antiques and collectibles from Buenos Aires or for that matter any other item that I have mentioned in any article you have found on this my web site, you can buy Toys from my museum and threw eBay, threw the Toy Museum on eBay press here; Toy Museum on eBay and threw The Buenos Aires ArtDealer, press here; Art Dealer on eBay From Art to Antiques.

Personal Shopper: Diving Helmet
Topic: Personal Shopper Tour
Personal shopper goes into the deepness of vintage diving helmets to
discover amazing treasure; this could be the headline to an amazing
experience we had a couple of weeks ago.

One of America's most prominent diving helmets collectors contacted us upon
a fantastic item he was looking for and couldn't get hold of. This was an
American made US Navy standard helmet that had been used also by Argentina
Navy; dating late 60' or early 50's this rare find weight some 50 kilos and
it was in perfect working condition. Made out pure copper all the way though
this outstanding collectible combined red, silver like metal and yellow.

We surveyed the local market, shops and Argentine collectors and antique
dealers who might know something on the matter. It was not an easy task
specially for Buenos Aires is not the center to diving in our country this
is located further south to the Atlantic Ocean coast line and it's usually
in those location were these kind of items are left aside when not in use.
However, thanks to our broad contacts within the world of antiques and
collectibles we finally got hold of this magnificent item in superlative
conditions.

Once the item was found we contacted our collector friend in the States and
sent him all the information, photos and hints on the item to confirm this
was what he was looking for.

Such was the great condition of the item our collector friend was in such
enthusiasm that he wanted to acquire it right away.

As part of our personal shopper service we not only hunt for the item of
your interest but also get the best possible deal on it too. Negotiation was
as hard as the hunt, for indeed the helmet was in very good condition, 100%
original and it had never been restored or altered in any of its original
features. At last we got a great deal for our prominent collector.

Soon after, we began to work on the shipping and handling of the helmet from
Buenos Aires to the State of Florida in southern US. In a custom made box,
carefully wrapped and packed as to assure the collectible's integrity
throughout the journey, the helmet left the southern city. Four days latter
it arrived to the US.

It was a perfect hunt and deal and our friend was thankful and satisfied
throughout the whole process.

Our client's satisfaction and full reliability on our art dealer and
negotiation skills are the most important aspect of our personalized shopper
service.

We're now soon to begin other hunts to help our friend complete the
Argentinean helmets section of his collection.

Personal Shopping for Religious Antiques in BA
Topic: Personal Shopper Tour
Personal Shopper: Personal Shopping for Religious Antiques in BA

Flor Rodriguez, todays ArtDealers Personal Shopper ...

Thursday, early in the morning San Telmo awaited us. or may be we waited in
San Telmo.

A couple of months ago we had been contacted by Frank Chevernak from New
York. He was coming to Buenos Aires to the International Congress of
Perinatal Medicine and he was interested in acquiring some antique St
Frances Latin American statues. Soon after he contacted us, we researched
the market of religious antiques in BA, searched for the best prices and
highest quality, different styles and materials. We emailed back and forth
with the insight information we had researched. So when he arrived to the
city he had all the necessary information beforehand and a broad insight on
what he was to find; this was especially important in this case, because
Frank was not coming on pleasure, but on business to BA, hence he had little
time to spend hunting antiques and we had to optimize it.

Early in the morning Flor met Frank at his hotel. Asim Kurjak, the World
Association of Perianatal President was joining us too for some art and
antique shopping too, so we worked a plan to fit both of their needs.


See Image Gallery for Saint Francis found in San Telmo:

Link to Photo Album Saint Francis of Assisi, found in Argentina



As stated at the beginning we arrived during the morning to San Telmo. If
you once met an antique dealer in BA you will know their time tables are
nothing like the rest of ours', there's not a specific time in which they
open for business, so it's important to have a flexible plan. We did, wile
we awaited for some of the religious art dealers we discover some great art
shops, run by the artist who were kind enough to show us their work and
negotiate a fair price for their beautiful art.

As the morning went on we finally were able to see those St Frances Frank
was looking for. Quality and prices ranged from good and reasonable to some
outrageous cases, in which negotiating was not a possibility, it was such a
pitty. As in everything in life this happens, and one has to acknowledge who
you are dealing with. Nonetheless we did find many kind and welcoming art
dealers who were willing to discuss their prices and work with us so we
could get Frank the best deal possible.

That morning we found a beautiful St Frances 18th century wooden statue from
northern Argentina, featuring extremely expressive glass eyes. What a
finding! We talked and discussed the best possible deal, and we achieved it.

It was wonderful to see our client so satisfy with such an interesting piece
of art.

After that we enjoyed a cup of coffee at Plaza Dorrego, while a local street
singer delighted us with a superb version of Piazzolla's Adios Nonino, La
cumparsita and many other fantastic tangos.

Not only it was this Thursday morning a wonderful business day, but also a
great opportunity of meeting two bright and charming gentlemen.
