Provenance Antiques is Yarek, Artur, and Melissa. Provenance celebrates the exceptional, and their mission is just that – procuring the most exceptional and finest pieces possible and sharing them at Market Hill.

Provenance Antiques is based just outside of Nice, France, where they have a warehouse facility, and in Atlanta, Georgia, where they have a 10,000-SF store. Twice a year, they call Market Hill their home away from home.

“What the Market Hill experience means to us is family,” Yarek says.

Provenance has been exhibiting in Round Top for well over 10 years now, and Yarek says, “We look forward to every show. Our business is always developing. We are travelling to Europe more and more frequently in search of the exceptional, to discover new resources in order to expand our market.”

“For those who are passionate about fine antiques, inspiration abounds everywhere,” he says. “No matter which day it is, when we receive a container it is like Christmas. There are fabulous pieces everywhere.
