Painted not Gilt, They Misrepresent
Very unhappy with this transaction. I’ve done many many auctions and particularly with Gilt Mirrors. They are completely nonresponsive, and do not accept responsibility for the fact that they misrepresent the items in the auctions. This is completely unacceptable that as a buyer one has no recourse if they just ignore you. Very unhappy about this! Buyer beware! Live auctioneers should reprimand them.

Great deal, responsive auction house and great shipper
I never write reviews. Most people write to complain, but I'm writing to say what a good experience doing business with this auction house was. Also a shout out to Ship1, who shipped the package at a very reasonable price. I had stopped buying items from so far away, but they restored my faith in this auction site.

Dear Valued Client, Antique Kingdom acknowledges, with regrets, your less than favorable review. However, our House stands fully behind the description of this item as forwarded to you in the 1st attachment below. The term “Art Deco” era mentioned there is correct, since this item assuredly IS a 1910-1940 made art piece, not a contemporary replica. As stated in our Terms and Conditions in the 2nd attachment, it is our esteemed clients ’ prerogative and our House’s privilege to make all our selections available for review, be it with additional pictures, videos, or even by welcoming them in our Gallery to see the pieces they are interested in. I do remember that you were at some point thinking of picking up your item by hand-it would have been our pleasure to make it available to you PRIOR to your purchase as well. Antique Kingdom commits to truthful and transparent description of all auction catalogs, while also dedicating full attention to every feedback and comment from our valued clients. Yours is received with full respect. We remain at your disposal to clarify this issue more in depth and details, if need be. Sincerely, Antique Kingdom

Delivery and item auction is great except they forgot to mention that it was a replica.

Dear Sir, With utmost regard for your review, it is a fact that this piece is an original Faberg é, created in commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the House of Faberg é. It came to you with its original box as well. Antique Kingdom will never misrepresent our auctioned items. Had you expressed questions or contacted us with any doubts in your mind prior to your purchase, our House would have clarified the matter immediately, with the understanding that a genuine Karl Faberg é Egg would be priceless, and exposed in a St. Petersburg Museum. It is my sincere hope that you will concur there was no intent to mislead you in any way, and I will commit to keeping your comment diligently in mind for future reference. With respectful regards, Antique Kingdom Manager

very difficult people
I am from Europe and I won an item from Antique Kingdom. They didn't want to provide any kind of information about the dimensions of the item or about the address where the item is located. They said in all the emails that they are not involved in shipping progress... but how should I organise something without any kind of information. After 7 days and 40 emails they told me the dimensions and the adress. As experience I don't recommend Antique Kingdom as seller or at least for Europe.

Dear Sir, With all due respect, an experienced auction client understands that even the diligent response to your 20 emails requires a great degree of courtesy and an utmost desire to help you as our esteemed client, above and beyond the call of duty. From your very first email up to our last 20th response, our House had only one goal, to make the process as easy as possible by providing you with 2 excellent shippers, who have shipped items to our clientele GLOBALLY and without any issues for many years … you however preferred to go another personal route, choosing a shipper that we did not know. Therefore, in order to comply with the requirements and policies of your selected shipper, you demanded assistance from us in handling your item, packaging it and delivering it by hand to the location of your shipper, so that such charges would be eliminated from your shipping fees-which services we clearly state in our policy that we DO NOT PROVIDE. Therefore, we had no choice but to underscore the fact that we are not involved in the handling, packaging nor delivery of purchased items, as stated in our Terms and Conditions, in each response to your demands, just as is the norm for innumerable other auction houses in the world. But at any rate, if our services were not up to your expectations, we apologize and take this as an opportunity to express once more our sincere gratitude for your purchase. With best regards, Leyla Ashrafi Antique Kingdom Manager

Such of horrible experience, buyer be aware.

Dear Sir, Antique Kingdom forwarded to you at least 2 requests for a copy of your corroborating experts ’ evidence, as you personally stated in your email to us, but NEVER received ANY documentation that your art piece is not a genuine 19th Century item. We stand a thousand percent behind our selections as described in our catalog and will not allow anyone to defame our name at will. Especially not because of a scent or a screw that substantiates absolutely NOTHING, as to the inauthenticity of such a piece that has traveled 2 hundred years since it was first created. Any REAL expert would determine its age with a naked eye. Sincerely, Antique Kingdom

I am happy with the item I purchased, but found their prices are high
I hand no trouble dealing with them. The shipping company took longer to get my Meissen figurine here than I would have liked.

Be very careful about the condition of items
We purchased a number of items from Antique Kingdom. Some items were damaged and in disrepair without appropriate disclosure, and Antique Kingdom has refused to rectify the situation.
