Snuffling for antiques in and around Cape Town

There are a few antique “clusters” around Cape Town that you should be sure to investigate. Long Street is generally a productive hunting ground for antique lovers, particularly in the region of the Long Street Antique Arcade at the corner of Long and Whale Street. Kalk Bay also has a great collection of antique stores, particularly Quagga Rare Books and Art, the Railway House, and the Kalk Bay Trading Post.
The following Western Cape antique stores are listed on the website of the South African Antique Dealer’s Association website (if you have trouble locating any of these you should be able to track them down by entering the shop names, or at least street names, into Google Maps):

  1. Good Day

    I am a big collector of the old Eastern Province Rugby, and I collect all kinds of memorabilia like Jerseys, programs, socks, ties, jackets etc. Do you have any of the listed memorabilia? Because I will buy anything that you have got with the original insignia on it.

    I also collect memorabilia of Cricket, but specifically only Eastern Province and Impalas. I am looking for the old Benson and Hedges cricket clothes!! All I want from Eastern Province is just the long sleeve jersey, plus the red pants and the cap and an Eastern Province Cricket Tie. For Impalas all I want is just the long sleeve jersey, the pants and the cap and their colour is burgundy (Or meroen in afrikaans)

    Is there any way you can help me out on this?

    Regards
    Gerann

    • Gerann, Do you not want to write something for the blog about your collection? I could post it to the facebook page (with 500 readers) and maybe some-one will come forward with an item lying somewhere in their cupboard to add to your collection. What you wrote at the top is actually okay – maybe just send me a photo or 4 to illustrate it with. You can mail it to info@greendoorcollection.com
      with kind regards, Philda

  2. Hi there,
    I have a collection of different Meissen china with vine leaf decal.
    Variety of Coffee pot, tea pot, cups, saucers, plates, egg cups etc etc.
    How do I get this valued and where would be the best place to sell?
    Thanks,
    Steph
    0788 118 148

    • Steph, I suggest you contact Maurits Lammers tel 0824487985
      lammers@mweb.co.za . He is based in George, but is a second generation
      antique dealer. First thing to do would be to send him photographs of one or
      two items and do not forget to photograph the detail on the back of one of
      the items too. Good luck!
      with kind regards,
      Philda Benkenstein

  3. Good Morning! I am a collector of stamps and post cards. Who in Cape Town can I visit to do a valuation on the worthiness of my collections? Some of my collections date back to the 16th century.

    Kind regards,
    Ria

    • Ria,Ek stel voor jy kontak die Filateliese Federasie se visepresident vir die Wes-Kaap, Robert Harm, robharm@mweb.co.za , tel 021 981 3348.
