Mayfair Gallery is a leading gallery in the field of art and antiques, holding a large and varied collection of unique pieces for sale. The breadth of the gallery’s collection is wide, and includes items from a range of periods, styles and geographical origins, as well as works by famous artists and antique craftsmen. The main focus of the gallery’s collection is, however, on items produced during the 19th and early 20th century. While the scope of antiques on offer is varied, all are of consistently high quality, and exemplify the skill of the artisan responsible. It is this emphasis on quality that unites Mayfair Gallery’s collection of diversely exquisite pieces.
Mayfair Gallery was founded by Mati Sinai in 1975. Mati first began dealing antiques in London in the 1970s, and he remains the Managing Director of the gallery today. Having taken a keen interest in antiques and their historical importance from a young age, Mati sought to travel the globe in search of rare and important objects. His philosophy of providing exceptional pieces and unsurpassed service remains at the core of Mayfair Gallery’s ethos; commitment to this principle ensures that our customers' expectations are continually exceeded. Mati’s sons, Jamie and Daniel, are now an integral part of the Mayfair Gallery team.
The gallery’s main showroom is located on South Audley Street in Mayfair, an exclusive area in the heart of London. The gallery is open for business year-round, and we invite customers from around the world to visit us. Those unable to visit Mayfair Gallery in person can use our virtual tour to browse the collection in its gallery setting. While the focus of gallery operations revolve around the purchase and sale of quality antique items, we also offer a range of other services for the convenience of our customers, such as antique restoration and product hire.
Mayfair Gallery regularly participates at fairs and exhibitions, both in London and internationally. To be informed of all future events and new acquisitions, please sign up to our mailing list.
Mayfair Gallery is an established member of LAPADA (The London and Provincial Antique Dealers Association) and CINOA (The International Confederation of Art and Antique Dealers' Associations).
“To me, the name Mayfair Gallery is synonymous with the familiar face of Mati Sinai. I first met Mati in the late 1970’s when I was an auctioneer at Sotheby’s and remember his inexhaustible enthusiasm, which was an inspiration to us all. One constant over all these years is Mati’s constant thirst for new acquisitions, and the gallery has developed a very fine collection of high quality decorative arts.
One memorable item from Mayfair Gallery that escaped my clutches was a rare Louis XIV ormolu and pietre dure casket that I was trying to buy on behalf of a private collector. This exceptional object was one of the finest pieces that I have ever encountered, and to me, sums up the spirit of collecting and connoisseurship in the decorative arts.”
