Also our city is located on one of the ancient trade route known as Peruvazhli (The Great Trade Route) which once was the connecting road frequented by ancient traders, form various countries, hence our city is home for a great history & culture, which fueled my passion for exploring old traditional house hold articles and their history.


Originally Indian Antique Quest was a travelogue, to share my journey, findings on history, culture, tradition, experiences, academic research, travel & quest, in a short period our community of like minded people grew big.


Our readers asked me to help them source home decor, kitchen vessels, furnitures with history, which started as a hobby & pastime activity, soon became an instant hit, since it was the 1st time old things lovers got hold of such authentic flawless clean sourced products, first hand detailed history and provenance of the piece they held in their hand, and from then my quest began.

One of best places where you can find genuine and authentic antiques. The proprietor, Mr. Sridhar answers questions and quells any doubts you might have promptly. All the antiques are well defined with their age and origin. And the story behind the antiques is well described. I’d recommend to all connossiers of antiques with full confidence.

I am extremely satisfied with the services of Indian Antique Quest. Be it their quest to source unique artefacts and never before seen antiques or being prompt in notifying when a desired artefact or antique is back in stock. Further, it is the mutual trust and flexibility between the seller and I that has helped forge a beautiful bond. Keep up the good work and reach dizzying heights. I would recommend any potential buyer to experience the joy of acquiring an Indian Antique Quest 😊
