Antiques do have a magical spell on collectors, especially if sold in an enchanting, romantic and "antique" city like Damascus. Throughout the centuries, antiques were traded in old Damascus by bazaar merchants and amateur collectors. There was no antique showroom in Damascus. Often, these merchants did not know the value of the products they were merchandizing. Antique Khan was the first serious attempt in Damascus to make antique display and appreciation a modern and professional art. Founded by the four sisters: Reem, Suzi, Rana and Najla Mohamad Salman* in 2001, the gallery is located in the heart of new Damascus, with products that vary in age, history, origin, and value, stretching from China through the Persian Gulf and Arabia. Some date back to the 17th century while others are from the 20th.

Not everyone who enters is required to buy, or expected to be a collector. Part of our goal is to increase antique appreciation and awareness in Syria. We want people to walk in, feel the magic of antiquities, relax over a cup of coffee, and appreciate the fine products on display. Antiques are an education and an art, before being a business.
