Always at the forefront of new trends in antiquities dealing, the Aboutaam brothers, Ali and Hicham, have decided to launch a truly innovative method for people to acquire antiquities through their computer. All a prospective customer has to do is point his mouse to www.e-tiquities.com and examine, at his own convenience, the large array of ancient works of art available for sale.
When the collector enters this website he will find beautiful objects of art in the widest possible range of prices, from as little as $500 and all the way up to $25,000, all available at the mere touch of a button.
The purpose of this venture, which was inaugurated on May 1st, 2009, is to bring antiquities to a new audience, an audience that did not previously have access to antiquities, or believed that ancient art collecting is only for the mega-rich. Ali and Hicham Aboutaam also want to make collecting ancient art easier for those already involved. As Hicham explained it,
“In launching e-tiquities™ by Phoenix Ancient Art, we hope both to introduce a new audience to the cultures of the ancient world, and to give our existing clients an easy way to expand their collections.”
