An American in Zurich ~ Antiques Dealer Arthur Rooks

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Originally from Jackson, MS, Arthur Rooks has been a resident of Zurich for 18 years.  He scours the city's famed flea markets in search of antique treasures, most vintage modern in style, and posts all his finds on his online website - Quintessentia - launched 6 years ago after a part time passion of buying & selling antiques and decorating apartments for friends turned full time international business.  Rooks estimates that 80% of Quintessentia's sales are with US shoppers, and offers very specific shipping rates & delivery times for his items to arrive at your door.  For more, check out the article on Rooks in the most recent NY Times Style Magazine's Design & Living Winter 2010 (found below) and click here for the link.
