Antique Collecting In Malta
– the essential guide for all melitensia lovers and collectors.
There is a healthy antique-collecting community in Malta and the contents of Maltese private collections are simply breathtaking. All the items which are being illustrated (except for most of the coins) have only one thing in common: they are found in Maltese collections and are hidden safely in the vast network of Maltese house museums scattered all over the island. Some private collections seem to rival the state collections. Ninety-five percent of the items which are being illustrated are not family heirlooms but are items which have appeared on the market over the past twenty years.
