"As a buyer who has been using the Atena website for several years, I have come to appreciate the quality and unusual appearance of the items on offer. The objects described on the site are true to life. The delivery of very fragile objects (porcelain, biscuit...) is carried out in excellent conditions (speed, quality of packaging). I recommend this site.

"Murano glass hanging lamp, extremely fragile. Perfect delivery, delay due to the replacement of two pendants broken during preparation, redone identically (angled cut). The preparation of the 3 packages is beyond reproach: - quality reinforced cardboard, nothing like conventional cardboard. - each tassel individually wrapped, using crepe paper then bubble wrap - parcels abundantly filled with shock-absorbing materials - careful and respectful carrier (no shocks on any of the 3 parcels). The e-mail exchanges are an example to follow for the quality of the follow-up of an online order. I was kept informed in real time of every stage, in a courteous and professional manner. Customer service is exemplary."

The collection scope is very focused and all the works of art are professionally selected in top class standards. This time in Atena, I am lucky enough to find a precious alabaster nude sculpture, which I have been looking for years. One more thing I should mention is, all the art works are in excellent condition, and well preserved by the owner. All in all, great communication, excellent shopping experience, will come back again. Very unique gallery in Paris with exquisite antiques! Highly recommend to all antique lovers. :)"

This is very important; this determines value and price. Thank you so much!

"I purchased a bisque Pendulum Clock (Venus and Cupids, crafted in biscuit) from this vendor. This is a most exquisite delicate piece, and damage as can occur to such rare pieces will do so during shipping. Leaving aside its monetary value (any such damage will be covered by insurance) it is obvious that the vendor appreciates the intrinsic timeless beauty of the piece - and what it represents - as the packaging ensured it would survive the roughest handling undamaged. As it did."

"Hello Mr. Sioufi, I still remember the famous evening I discovered your sculpture. An emblematic silhouette, easily recognizable even from a quick glance at your new acquisitions. I often contemplated this sculpture and, at the same time, kept an eye on sales, but despite the various models that exist, they are not legion, or only on auction. Which also explains why, particularly with this object, I had some experience of the differences it might contain. Finally, your gallery had one. The opportunity had to be seized! But nothing was won! On the one hand, there's the passion, but there's also the financial aspect, which isn't negligible either! Then there's doubt: was I right to embark on this adventure? Especially now, in these tense and uncertain times. You'll also read that it's flying off quickly. I received the parcel last night, perfectly packaged, but I didn't understand the origin of the "fragile" label until I saw the sculpture. Some of the pieces have been brought back, which accentuates its fragility. The discovery wasn't immediate, but it's always a source of indescribable joy. After careful unpacking, certain details began to appear - the tip of the sword, for example, and later the dragon's claws - and at last the whole sculpture was revealed to me. It takes a while for the eye to catch the subtleties and finesse of the details, because yes, Emmanuel Frémier was indeed an artist with an eye for detail. The French language has a rich lexical field, but sometimes, we're forced to admit, we can't always find the words. What can we say about the spurs? They're simply sublime! Indeed, they sublimate the object with their presence, perfectly complementing it, and the quality of the finely-executed workmanship is simply impressive, worthy of a great artist, and you can congratulate him on my behalf. As you pointed out, you shouldn't let yourself be influenced by the photos, because in reality, the result is even better. To the question. Was the restoration worth it? Yes, without any hesitation! I also know that I'm not an easy customer, so I'd like to thank you in particular for your patience and your accommodating offer, which enabled me to purchase this item. Many thanks to you and your wife. Yours sincerely".

"Dear Frederic, I have been in a rarified state for hours, ever since the paintings were delivered. The kind of fanciful reverie that sometimes happens in the presence of beauty...including beautiful works of art. Why, I wonder, was I so unfamiliar with his work? I don't recall ever seeing paintings that capture more tenderly moments of shared love portrayed within the domestic quietude of interiors so detailed and so well rendered they rival Rembrandt and Vermeer. And, just think! I don't have to go to the Louvre to see them. You have made it possible for me to gaze upon these Van Den Eycken masterpieces in my own home. Indeed, they are already hanging in the living room as I write. I can't possibly express my gratitude. May you and your family have a wonderful Holiday Season, Frederic. With this newest reason to be grateful, I am Your Friend"

As I'm a bibliophile, of course the quotation in the book doesn't go unnoticed. It's in excellent condition (just a tiny chip on the right shoulder, but that's really a detail considering the overall condition) and set off to its best advantage in my library, it really does belong."

"When I first visited Galerie Atena at the Louvre des Antiquaires, which is located just behind the Louvre Museum, my attention was immediately drawn to the bronze statues, full of life, and it was like a party. Every time I go to Paris, I visit the various Galerie Atena sites: the gallery near the Palais de l'Elysée, the refined villa in the quiet confines of Paris, and the luxurious Napoleon III-style apartment. Wandering through the forest of precious antiques, you can't help but marvel as you imagine what the residences of the nobles of the time might have been like. Resplendent clocks, gleaming wooden cabinets, refined caskets and marble columns from important old houses - every part of these objects tells the story of the 18th and 19th centuries. At midday, the clocks on the tables, in the cabinets and hanging on the walls all tell the time at the same time, making for such a wonderful scene. Every time I touch the bronze statues at home, I feel as if Mr. and Mrs. Sioufi are right beside me, whispering the story behind each object. I miss Paris again."

"Hello Mrs Sioufi, Last night I left a message to let you know that the parcel had arrived safely. The discovery! It took me a good thirty minutes to free the beautiful statue from its cardboard sarcophagus, the packaging was substantial, you do things by the book. And then, in total amazement, she appeared to me in all her splendor. After setting it out on the chest of drawers, it's very discreet with its beautiful patina, and from certain angles it's even golden, but once you've hung it up, it's all you can see, and I really feel it was made just for this spot. At the very beginning of our exchange I was a little apprehensive, I admit, but in the end I don't regret my choice. I'd also like to thank you for the dictionary of sculptors. The preface is very interesting, as it explains the casting process. Sincerely yours."

"Hello Sir/Madam, The parcel has just arrived, in perfect condition and complete. I would like to thank you very much for your diligence and the care taken in preparing this delivery. The confiturier corresponds perfectly to my wishes, and in the end, it's all the better with ten little spoons, allowing me to fully contemplate the union of the two antique figures."

"Dear Frederic, Well, she arrived a few hours ago, safe and sound. As expected, she is a beauty. The young lady is not only beautiful she has a "presence", if you know what I mean. What a perfect, timeless young face to welcome all who enter the foyer. Now that she has taken up residence it seems as if that space has been waiting for her arrival. I will take a picture and send it to you later this week."

She is now sitting in a place of honor in our main residence quietly ticking away in perfect harmony with our other clocks. M. and I very much enjoyed working with you and Nidal. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for the two thoughtful calls you made to me and we are looking forward to doing business with you again. Kind regards."

"Hello Frédéric, The clock arrived in perfect condition thanks to your super packaging! It is very impressive, a monument of the Restoration style and of a quality absolutely at the level of the best Empire and Consulate. I love the little dolphins typical of the 1820s. I haven't attached the pendulum yet. When everything's done, we'll send you a photo of the Tiber god's new home. For the moment I can only thank you for your patience, Very cordially."
