"The interest in antiques began at the home of my great-grandmother, Angela Loureiro, the owner Giloca, in the house of Av. Paulista.
his son in law, my grandfather, Celso Figueiredo, It was an empire enthusiast and concentrated their purchases in Brazilian imperial porcelain, making your home, na Al. Santos, molded to the Imperial Museum in Petropolis. Celso collected all his life until his death in 1982.
Inherited by my father, Celso Figueiredo Filho, Imperial Collection has become part of my family.
He and my mother, Heloisa Figueiredo, They loved the collection that has been the subject of thousands of meals before D saucers. John VI, D. Peter I and D. Pedro II.
The collection has grown and has expanded its scope. Crystals started to include, jewelry, buttons, commendations, arms, books and other objects that belonged to the Emperors and their families.
Celso died in 2015, Heloisa in 2016 and now this collection, which concentrates over 100 anniversary of the dedication of four generations of collecting, hits the market.
I am sure that the current collectors will recognize the quality and rarity of the collection now offered.
Each dish, each piece, sold here bring to your buyer the same joy and appreciation for our history that has always fascinated my family ".
