HISTORY  Our family business was founded a half-century ago when our dad, Eliahu Damatow, went to Paris to purchase antiques.  Once he discovered the Art Deco style, he was smitten!  He loved everything from the Art Nouveau to the Art Deco eras and began buying, selling, and trading pieces from our home.  In the 70s, Eli, as his friends called him, opened his first gallery in Manhattan, then a second location plus a warehouse to hold all of the treasures he was acquiring.

IN 1995, beckoned by family, sunshine, and warm breezes, Eli moved Artisan Antiques Art Deco to South Florida.  He was soon joined in the business by his two children, David and Lisa, who now work together in the business.

ABOUT PERIOD ART DECO  We specialize in pieces from the French Art Deco period, which only spanned about 30 years.   As time passes, these vintage pieces become increasingly more valuable as they become rare and harder to find.

POLICIES & PRACTICES  Thanks to the way that Art Deco pieces hold their value over time -- and because of how rare they are becoming --  we offer our clientele a unique return/exchange privilege.  Anything that you purchase from Artisan Antiques Art Deco may be returned at any time for a 100% store credit (based on condition, of course).

We work with the trade -- designers, decorators, architects as well as private individuals, collectors, and museums.  We not only sell everything Art Deco, we are also happy to buy and trade, too.   We will even install our own locally-delivered chandeliers and sconces. 

As for getting items from us to you, we deliver in South Florida and ship merchandise to everywhere else in the world.
COME SEE!  Everyone who visits our showroom in Miami is awed by  our extensive collection.  Between our five galleries, there are literally thousands of beautiful pieces to tempt you.  And we'll be happy to check our huge warehouse to find a special item for you.

Artisan Antiques Art Deco is even listed in Zagat's, Goodrich, and Travel channel as a must-see destination for visitors to South Florida.

Artisan Antiques Art Deco is open weekdays (Monday-Thursday) from 9:30am to 5:00 pm and Fridays from 9:30 to 4:00 pm.  We close for certain occasions and buying trips, so please call ahead to make sure that one of us is here to greet you.
