Recognized by the sign of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires, the members are united with a common code of ethics: Authenticity - Quality - Honourability.
They give, to the collectors and buyers in general, all the possible warranties for purchases and sales, as well as general and estate valuations.
The antique dealers, members of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires, contribute efficiently to the protection of the French heritage by identifying and valuing art objects, and by bringing their knowledge for their preservation and their conservation.
Many members of the SNA are also very heavily involved in associations that drive the neighborhoods where antique dealers shops are grouped.
In Paris,for instance : Carré Rive Gauche, Nocturnes Rive Droite, Quartier Drouot, Galeries de la rue Sainte-Anne or Art Saint-Germain des Près.
