The Antique Traders has been at the same location since it first opened in 1970 and carries investment-quality and museum-quality Decorative Arts from the Art Nouveau period.
From its inception The Antique Traders' founder/owner, Alan Schneider, has specialized in Tiffany lamps and other lamps of the period, silver, sculptures, stained & beveled-glass windows and other Art Nouveau pieces. Additionally, authentic French Art glass, bronzes, ceramics, furniture and items from Galle, Majorelle and Daum Nancy and others are found in his California Street studio.
Over the years and today The Antique Traders has advised museums, appraised numerous items for auction houses, and been featured in Arts & Antiques Magazine, Architectural Digest, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Paul Crist's Mosaic Shades.
Today, The Antique Traders is considered by many to be expert in its field and the passion Mr. Schneider discovered for the Art Nouveau period while a college Art History student has grown in both depth & dimension.
