Last week saw the exciting Brussels Antiques and Fine Arts Fair finish up in Brussels. Phoenix Ancient Art owners Ali Aboutaam and Hicham Aboutaam were part of the 130 vendors who were invited to be part of the 55th year of the fair. Since 1955, Belgium has hosted this fair, said to be the only one of its kind in the world. It is estimated that 36, 000 visitors from Belgium and around the world come to see the vast selection of available antiques.
Antique choices included everything from silver, antique jewelery, furniture and works of art from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, ceramics, drawings, engravings and more. The fair took place at the Tour & Taxis site in the heart of Brussels, creating a location that is easy to get to and that can house all of the items. A guided tour was available every day at 3 pm.
