The man behind Rodrigo Rivero Lake Antiques is certainly at the forefront of his field. Rivero-Lake is an antiquarian, collector, and expert in Mexican colonial art. He is also an author, lecturer, and consultant of several books on the Mexican presence in Asia from the 16th to the 19th century. He has supplied important pieces to museums and private collections of colonial art, Chinese porcelain, art, and elements of architecture from India, Asia, and America. He is, without doubt, an authority in Mexico, Latin America, and Asia. And from a very young age has always sought to safeguard important, historical items that were in danger of disappearing.

From this introduction, it probably goes without saying that browsing in Rodrigo Rivero Lake Antiques is akin to walking through a museum of incredible artifacts. All of the items found inside are certainly worthy of being showcased in a museum, and the history wrapped up in each piece only adds to the appeal. The showroom is totally stacked and it is hard to see space for new items to come into the store. However, the owner’s passion for collecting is insatiable, therefore new items of wonder are constantly being added to the store.

The goods for sale in Rodrigo Rivero Lake Antiques have been acquired over a lifetime of scouring flea markets, both in Mexico and abroad. Visitors to the store may feel intimidated by the owner’s resume and hesitate to ask what may be perceived as layman’s questions, but he always makes shoppers feel like he has plenty of time to help. His passion for his work shines through and it does not take a long conversation before visitors may find themselves embarking on a guided tour of his showroom! It is a real once-in-a-lifetime chance to catch a glimpse of Rivero-Lake’s life’s work and one that should not be missed.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
