Francisco Álvarez

Expert Antiques / Curio / Design

“My work as a restorer of classical buildings has taught me a lot.”

Francisco Alvarez's interest in antiques was likely to have been sparked by the beautiful art and antique furniture in his childhood home. When he went on to study architecture, he chose to specialise in the renovation of classical buildings while at the same time running an antique shop with a good friend of his. This has taught him a lot about the Spanish antiques market and he became knowledgeable in the valuation of antique objects. Meanwhile, Francisco Alvarez has gained years of valuable experience which all came together at Catawiki. For his Antiques and Curio auctions he comes into contact with a lot of different objects. From coffee grinders to wooden dolls to Art Deco lamps and bric-à-brac cabinets. Francisco Alvarez has seen it all and therefore is able to estimate which objects go together nicely in an auction. His goal is to create varied auctions that also have their own personalities. With a great variety of different objects he hopes to surprise his international visitors each week.
  • Gained extensive knowledge through renovation works
  • Years of experience working in his own antiques shop
  • Great lover of antiques and curio
