HOW TO BUY

Collectors have been buying antiquities / ancient artifacts for thousands of years and it is a rewarding hobby and passion for people around the world today. Artemis Gallery takes great care in ensuring that each and every artifact we list for sale is from the culture and time period from which it is attributed.

Artemis Gallery buys artifacts from reputable sources (museums, auction houses, major dealers and collectors around the world), ensuring that every piece offered for sale has been legally acquired and is legal to sell. 

We've handled hundreds of thousands of ancient items which gives us the ability to know excactly 'what' to look for when authenticating truly ancient pieces vs. fake / reproduction pieces. When in doubt, we use experts in their respective fields, plus use respected laboratories to perform Thermoluminescence testing (TL) to confirm an item's age. No dealer is perfect, but Artemis Gallery takes great pride in saying "we do not sell fakes!"


BUY ONLY LEGALLY ACQUIRED ANCIENT ART

While there are indeed a number of laws governing the sale and purchase of items of cultural patrimony (antiquities), as long as an item has been legally imported into the United States, it's legal to sell and purchase. Laws vary on the required date of importation, but a good general rule of thumb is that the item should have been exported from its home country prior to 1970, when most laws and the UNESCO Treaty on Items of Cultural Patrimony were signed. Artemis Gallery abides by all international laws and treaties with regard to the sale of its items.

We take great pride in offering amazing products, as well as being proficient packers and shippers which ensures safe, intact delivery worldwide.  If your'e ever not happy with your purchase, let us know and we'll make it right.  No sale is ever final if you're not happy.
