handcrafted history from our home to yours

Mahmoud Baidun established his shop over 85 years ago on the Via Delorosa in old Jerusalem. From an early age, Mahmoud combined his curiosity for history with a strong eye for the subtle features of antiquity. As a boy he brought flowers to the toiling archaeologists, and in return they taught him what to look for and explained the many symbols and styles of each object. He gathered coins and shards from the  among archaeologists that Mahmoud’s small shop contained some very special objects.
