Czech Association of Antique Dealers


T


he Czech Association of Antique Dealers was established in 1991 and its first Assembly and Elections were


held in the very beginning of 1992. Te membership is open not only to antique and art dealers but also to restorers, experts and collectors. Te Association has selected as its symbol the portrait of Rudolf II (1552- 1612), the Holy Roman Emperor, an important supporter of arts and also an important collector. Te membership today stands at around 200. Te Association is managed by an elected board which meets monthly. Te main achievements of the Association to date can be divided into several categories. Firstly, the Association has established a


working structure and is recognised as an important professional body representing the interests of art and antique dealers. It is also recognised as an important body by different state institutions and increasingly is being invited for consultations on new legislation. Internationally the achievements of the Czech Association were recognised by being accepted into CINOA in 1996. Ever since then it has been one of the priority areas to contribute internationally to the improvement of trading conditions. Secondly, and undoubtedly one of the Association‘s biggest achievements, are the educational programs it has developed. Te first program, accredited by the Ministry of Education, is the “four year day course” targeted at students between the ages of 14 and 18. Tis course, which concludes with a school leaving examination, is equivalent to any other secondary education. Students with this qualification are able to work in antique shops and galleries, etc. Te classes cover History of Art, Collecting, Care of Historical Monuments and Connoisseurship. Part of the course is Professional Training which from the 2nd year onwards takes place with selected


dealers for one day a week. Te first students graduated in the spring of 1997. By mid-2016 more than 180 students have completed the program. Te second program is the so called Rudolfin Academy which offers a two year distance requalification course concluded by examinations. Initially, most students were art dealers and collectors who needed the official qualification. However, today most students are professionals in different areas – lawyers, doctors, managers, architects, designers, etc., who have an interest in antiques and art and in collecting and thus they get a chance to obtain specialist knowledge in these fields. Student enrolments – particularly for the Rudolfin Academy – remain high. For the school year 2015/2016 the Academy accepted 120 students. Te Association’s third main achievement is the now well-established antique trade fair “ANTIQUE”. Tis fair – the biggest of it’s kind in the Czech Republic - takes place twice a year in the beautiful historical halls of the Novomestska radnice – "Te New Town hall" (Karlovo namesti 1/23) in the very centre of Prague. To date the Association has staged 37 fairs with increasing popularity and quality of goods from year to year. A typical fair attracts around 60 exhibitors and despite the recent enlargement


in exhibition space demand


from exhibitors continues to exceed the capacity of the venue. Te dates for the next fairs are 24th to 27th November 2016, 20th to 23rd April and 23rd to 26th November 2017. For updated information and dates on future fairs please see the Association’s website (www.asociace.com).


Last but not least, the Association has its


own award – the so-called “Knights of Golden Rudolf II” which it bestows on individuals who it feels have made a substantial contribution to the development of the Czech art and antique trade. To date 10 individuals have been honoured with this award.
