Akiba Galleries TOP RATED
Akiba Antiques, founded by Charles and Franceska Akiba in the 1980's in Paris, France started by buying and selling fine arts. Franceska specialized in French furniture from the fine Napoleonic Era to La Belle Epoque, to Art Nouveau and Art Deco; While Charles' expertise lay in European paintings beginning from the Renaissance to modern. These tastes perfectly complemented each other to build one of the finest duos the art world has seen. Migrating over to the United States in 1995, they broke into the American markets opening galleries throughout South Florida. Today, they have relocated to Dania Beach, Florida (Broward County's first founded city), owning one of South Florida's most intricate and exquisite antique malls with a dozen dealers, all with unique tastes for art, antiques, collectibles, exceptional jewelry and more. In addition, their son Jonathan Akiba, working in the family business for 10 years, expanded Akiba Antiques into Akiba Galleries by opening an auction gallery with an eclectic collection of fine arts, collectibles, jewelry and more from all cultures of the world. Alexander Anapolsky, his life-long friend, came on board in 2015 to become a co-owner and together they have grown to become one of the top auction galleries in the Southeast US. Auctions are conducted three times a month and catalogues can be seen 2 weeks prior on Akibagalleries.com, as well as the largest online auction websites in the world: Liveauctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. Consistently keeping up with market value, Akiba Galleries provides a unique service to broker art internationally; earning their consignors maximum value, while leaving room for potential good deals to their purchasers!

Great auction experience!
Akiba Galleries is very professional and well-organized and was easy to work with. Their descriptions were accurate, and the photos further enhanced the descriptions. Since the items were too large for in-house shipping, I contacted the UPS store that Akiba suggested, and they did an excellent job of packing and shipping the pottery at a reasonable cost. The items are just as pictured and described; I am delighted with them and the whole auction experience.

Akiba is my # 1 choice in auction houses.
I have participated in a number of auctions held by Akiba auction house. I have never had a problem that wasn't delt with to my satisfaction in a timely manner. One of the real plusses about dealing with this action house is the shippers. UPS store # 1937 which picks up and ships my purchases have also been a positive. Knowing the purchase and delivery of the items I purchase will be handled in a professional and timely manner makes it easy to bid with confidence.
