About us


At BANCROFT ANTIQUES, we deal in a superb selection of fine vintage jewellery, supplemented by a collection of antique silver pieces, and a range of other quirky curiosities.

Established in 1988, the family run business is based in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Paul Mrkusic and his father scour the planet to bring you unconventional rarities, a selection of which can be viewed at the monthly markets in and around Johannesburg - Hyde Park Antique Market on the last Sunday, and Nelson Mandela Square Antique Market on the first Sunday of each month.

We also exhibit at the Brooklyn Mall Antique Market in Pretoria, which is always the day before the Nelson Mandela Square Antique Market - usually the first Saturday of the month.

In addition to these, BANCROFT ANTIQUES is a regular highlight at the much anticipated and highly prestigious annual SAADA Antique, Art & Design Expos - one in Cape Town in February, and the other in Johannesburg in October - and also features at the annual NAADA Fairs midyear in Johannesburg.

When not exhibiting at these and other events, BANCROFT ANTIQUES fine collector's items can be viewed on our online store at www.bancroftantiques.co.za or by appointment by phoning Paul on 082 823 1492.

Paul is the current CEO of the venerable South African Antique, Art and Design Association (SAADA) - see www.saada.co.za
