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 - our collection can be viewed at our stall at the Bryanston Organic Market every Thursday and Saturday, 9am - 3pm, at the Michael Mount Waldorf School, 40 Culross Road, Bryanston.

We also exhibit at the Sandton Nelson Mandela Square Antique Market, normally on the first Sunday of each month.

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

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 was the CEO of the South African Antique, Art and Design Association (SAADA) from October 2013 until November 2020 and continues to serve on the association's committee - see www.saada.co.za
