Antiques

Only Persian kings, the Egyptian pharaohs and the royal Alaric in river Busento, among others, took  their treasures with them into their grave.. So for many of us it comes a time   to consider what to do with a life long collection. I made my decision!

I collected all my adult life. Coins, instruments, chronometers, paintings, fire arms, tools and women. And without any doubt the last position was the most expensive one, not only because of the settlement agreement – no they wanted to have their part. And my treasures have been split and split again ..again. But something is still in my possession and the decision made to give it away, since nobody of my kind showed really interest.

Some of my antiques have a really interesting background. During my stay in Cairo, my friend Samy gave ny the chance to buy from the grand-daughter of Le Nem Pascha, or in French Monsieur Linant, the remains and leftovers from the resolution of her household: icons, paintings, furniture and a grandfather clock changed owner and I brought it all to Costa Rica.  Visit my virtual Antique Shop
