Chineur Antiques is the creation of two life-long friends.
Chineur is a French word that perfectly encapsulates our passion for discovering and collecting beautiful antiques and old items. It’s a term that describes someone who seeks out and unearths treasures of the past, and this is precisely what we have dedicated ourselves to. Our journey began with a simple love for antique pieces that exuded quality, beauty, and a sense of history. These objects not only enriched our lives but also fueled our curiosity about the artisans who crafted them and the lives they touched.
Our particular passions lie in beautifully crafted objects from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth century. These periods produced some of the most exquisite and intricate pieces, representing the pinnacle of craftsmanship and artistic expression. The stories behind these objects are often as fascinating as the items themselves, and we relish the opportunity to delve into the past, unraveling the mysteries of their origins and uncovering the tales they have to tell.
At Chineur Antiques, we believe that each piece is not just an artifact but also a witness to history. It is our mission to rescue these witnesses from the sands of time, and by doing so, we preserve the stories and cultural heritage they embody. We invite you to become part of that story, to explore the rich tapestry of human history through the objects we curate and bring into your life.
Collecting antiques is, in many ways, an environmentally responsible pursuit. It is the oldest form of recycling, repurposing objects that have outlived their original use and giving them new life and purpose. By embracing the beauty of these treasures, we also help to minimize our impact on the planet by reducing the demand for new materials and the waste generated by disposable products. Antique collecting is a way to connect with our past while contributing to a more sustainable future.
We welcome you to join us on this journey of discovery, as we continue to seek out and share the unique and timeless beauty of the antiques we unearth. At Chineur Antiques, we celebrate the craftsmanship, stories, and history that make each piece special, and we look forward to sharing our passion with you. Together, we can write a new chapter in the story of these extraordinary objects, preserving their legacy for generations to come.
