(L to R:  Inma, Andres, Gema and Lola Alcocer)      

Alcocer Anticuarios is a family enterprise, founded in 1870 by Santiago Alcocer. The gallery showroom location at Calle Santa Catalina 5 in the city center of Madrid was home to our inventory for 56 years, until we were forced to move in 2022 due to the sale of the building. Our business continues as usual, for the present time online and by appointment, run by fourth generation antiquarian Gema Alcocer (having previous experience working for Sotheby's London and Milan's Royal Palace) and her husband Peter Field Peck. Gema's sister Inmaculada represents Alcocer in the United States with a collection of pieces in the Boston, Massachusetts area. (

Alcocer Anticuarios offers a highly diverse collection of 18th and 19th century European furniture, paintings, ceramics and decorative art objects. We are especially proud of our extensive collection of 18th century English and French clocks, as well as a selection of high quality Spanish silver pieces.

 A well-respected fixture of Madrid's antiques community for over 100 years, Alcocer Anticuarios is widely recognized for our extensive experience and knowledge. We cater to a broad clientele of private collectors, interior designers, and museums. Pieces purchased from Alcocer Anticuarios appear in the collections of the Museum of the History of Madrid, National Museum of Decorative Arts, Madrid, Carmen Thyssen Museum of Malaga, Museum of Fine Arts of Asturias, National Museum of Ceramics and Decorative Arts "Gonzalez Martí" Valencia, and the Clock Museum of the Palacio del Tiempo in Jerez de la Frontera.

In addition to our native Spanish, we speak English and Italian, and offer specialized international shipping, insurance and customs assistance.
