The business was officially established in 1933 and was then run by Filip’s sons Max and Simon, who moved the gallery to a new location at Mäster Samuelsgatan. Max’s son Curt then inherited the business and proceeded to run Skajs Antikhandel for ca 40 years at a new location at Lästmakargatan.
Today Skajs Antikhandel is owned and run by the fourth generation of the family Mikael Skaj. In 2006 Mikael moved the gallery to a more central location right next to the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, and at this time, he chose to refine the selection on offer and added modern art to the mix.
Mikael studied at Sotheby’s Institute in London and worked both at Sotheby’s impressionist department in Paris and at Neumeister’s auction house in Munich.
We have, through four generations, amassed a great amount of knowledge and experience of the business, and focus on only high quality items while ensuring our clients to receive the very best service.
We deal with private clients, businesses, museums, institutions etc. The majority of our clients are based in or around Stockholm, but we also cater to clients in the rest of Scandinavia and Europe, the US, Brazil and China.
Skajs Antikhandel arranges an array of exhibitions with other galleries and artists as well as taking part in Grand Antique, a bi-annual fine art and furniture fair at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm.
Skajs Antikhandel is a member of Swedens’s Art and Antique Dealer’s Associaton as well as the international art and antiques association Cinoa.
Skajs Antikhandel have developed a strong commitment to share their passion with their clients advising them while building strong and lasting relationships based on trust.
