A reference for both private and institutional collectors as well as for international Museums, São Roque’s team of specialists ensure that it maintains its preeminent position in an ever-growing and globalized Art and Antiques market.
Specializing in excellence, the galerie Steinitz is proud to present some of the most beautiful objects of European decorative arts of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
Most of the pieces we present have a prestigious provenance and their equivalents can be found in the most important museums around the world.
