Alcocer Anticuarios is a family enterprise with an incredible history. Founded in 1870 by Santiago Alcocer, the Madrid gallery is presently run by fourth-generation antiquarian Gema Alcocer, who has an international background having already worked for antiquing professionals in London and Milan. Her husband Peter Field Peck also works in the Spanish store, while her sister represents Alcocer in the United States with a collection of pieces in Boston. There can be no doubt that this is a family that has antiques in their bloodline!
Alcocer Anticuarios offers a highly diversified collection of 18th and 19th-century European furniture, paintings, ceramics, chandeliers, sculptures, Asian arts, mirrors, and decorative art objects. The store has also specialized in a couple of areas, with an extensive collection of 18th century English and French clocks and a wide selection of high-quality Spanish silver pieces. This store is obviously somewhere that collectors will want to have on their list of places to visit and even the most casual shoppers will be amazed at the beautiful items here that will fit in any home.
