Leopold Antiques and Design is a family owned business run by Carlo Vanseer who has acquired many years of expertise in the antique business. He has been a prominent member of the Royal Guild of Flemish Antique dealers (De Koninklijke Gilde van Vlaamse Antiquairs).
Based at the Leopoldwal in Tongeren, at the center of the famous Tongeren flea market, Leopold Antiques and Design has specialized in three branches of the antique business. These branches are antiques, art nouveau art glass and design.
Carlo Vanseer represents the third generation of a family of antique dealers. He and his forefathers were specialized in 19th century antiques, mainly of western european origin with an emphasis on the French Napoleon III period. At an early age he became interested in French Art Nouveau glass from makers such as Emile Gallé and Daum Frères. He became an expert in this area at the age of 25. Until a few years Leopold Antiques only dealt in items up to the 1930’s but this has now changed. It is now an interesting mix of antique, Art Nouveau, Art Deco 50’s 60’s and 70’s decorative items and furniture.
