J'ai fait mon premier achat en 1996 avec un йtui а cigarettes en bois dont le couvercle йtait en argent. Le poinзon y figurant йtait un "fascio" (faisceau, symbole du fascisme), par consйquence j'avais compris que l'objet avait йtй produit en Italie entre 1935/1940. Aprиs cette premiиre rencontre avec l'univers de l'argenterie ancienne j'ai commencй а frйquenter les marchйs aux puces et les antiquaires, j'ai achetй des livres et des catalogues de vente aux enchиres d'orfиvrerie, а la recherche d'objets en argent pour la petite collection que j'йtais en train de former.

Immйdiatement j'ai du limiter mes recherches aux objets d'argenterie Europйenne, particuliиrement а ceux de petite taille, pour rйduire les coыts et surtout l'espace nйcessaire а exposer ma collection. J'ai rйussi а rassembler des piиces du XVIII siиcle et de nombreuses piиces du XIX siиcle.

Malgrй que mon principal intйrкt est l'argenterie, j'ai commencй а rassembler d'autres objets, en incluant dans ma collection des barbotines, des broches avec camйe, des miniatures en ivoire et d'autres objets appelйs "objets de vitrine".

Actuellement je continue mes recherches d'objets anciens (ou modernes), avec une attention particuliиre pour les objets peu ordinaires et parfois inusuels, et j'ai mкme йtendue mes recherches sur Internet.

En cliquant l'index ci-dessus mon site donnera la description illustrйe de quelques-uns des mes piиces prйfйrйes.

Je me permets de vous rappeler que mon site a йtй rйalisй en Anglais et que par consйquence, sauf les pages signalйes avec le drapeau , les descriptions et l'entiиre structure est en Anglais.

J'espиre qu'il sera а votre goыt. Vous pardonnerez mes erreurs de Franзais (vos corrections seront bien apprйciйes).
