French Antiques, Italian antiques, Art and Objets d’art
Secolo Art and Antiques showroom is located in central Nelson, at 102 Nile Street, next to Maben House. Please ring the bell by the black double doors, at the back of the house. We are open daily from 10.30am – 3pm or by appointment and are happy to show clients through at short notice.
We specialise in 17th to 20th century art and antiques. Our French antiques are mainly sourced from the south of France and our Italian antiques are sourced from the north of Italy.
We stock all types of antique furniture, including a selection of armoires, commodes, consoles, tables and chairs. Along with the furniture, we offer a selection of tapestries, mirrors, chandeliers, statuary, art, candlesticks, decorative and garden items.
Although most of our stock is Italian and French, we also buy from dealers in the U.K, U.S.A, Belgium and Germany. Antiques are our passion and we are constantly searching for beautiful pieces for our showroom. Occasionally we come across special Oriental, English, Dutch or Swedish pieces in Italy and France. Oriental carpets and porcelain are especially appealing to us, as they were to Europe throughout the centuries. In our next container we have some antique carpets and porcelain, along with many items for the kitchen, such as the desirable ochre glazed confit pots, beautifully embroidered napkins, bowls and trays.
Along with antiques, our showroom has a collection of art from the 17th to 20th century, from beautiful pastoral scenes, portraits of nobility or the gentry, architectural engravings and more. These complement any home whether it’s traditional or contemporary.
As collectors, we have a passion for unique and decorative furniture and objet d’art. Our showroom is attached to our home, which allows us to be more competitive in our pricing and to see clients outside work hours. So come and browse if you’re in the area.
New items are being added to our website often, and we have containers arriving frequently. You are welcome to add your name on our mailing list, to be notified when our next container arrives. If there is a special piece you haven’t been able to find, we would be happy to try to source it for you.

Antiques have been a lifelong passion. We have been importing antiques since 1996 and are now specializing in 17th – 20th century Italian and French art and antiques.
We have a background in interior and landscape design and are happy to help with the placing of a single item through to full house or garden projects. We also offer a sourcing service for hard-to-find pieces.
