Berze Art & Antiques

Zafer Sok 23, D2, Nişantaşı, Istanbul

A two-min walk from Osmanbey metro station (use the Pangaltı exit), or a five-min taxi from Taksim (get out at Süleyman Nazif Sokağı, next to the architect Vedat Tek’s exquisite 1900s town house, now a café)

This excellent little antiques shop is on Zafer Sokağı, the narrow, calmer street running parallel to Valikonağı Caddesi. The owner, Berna Bayındır has inherited an excellent eye from her father, a legendary collector, and her shop is always full of interesting furniture and affordable, well chosen objets d’art.

There is nowhere better, in Cornucopia’s view, for a really special present. You can find everything from elegant mirrors to 19th-century chandeliers, to mother-of-pearl-inlaid furniture, to French fin-de-siecle porcelain and interesting drawings. Currently on offer is an exceptional dowry chest exquisitely inlaid with mother-of-pearl and ivory.
