Who are we…
We’re a “Treasure House” of French antiques.
Imported directly from France every August direct to Sydney.
Meyer’s Secondhand and Antiques was established in 1966 in Sydney, Australia, by a Dutch cabinetmaker: John Meyer Senior, born April 23, 1925 and passed away on September 23, 2011. We were clearing deceased estates in the Neutral Bay area to the tune of 3 full houses a day. The shop was situated in the old Big Bear, originally a tramway station, with plenty of cheap space.
Units were getting built and houses demolished. This, combined with the movement of people with little interest for their inherited furniture, allowed our company to flourish. “The amount of items that I saw, as a child, coming through the shop, would astound anyone who loves antiques.
Treasure House is John Meyer personally buying in France and selling genuine French antiques in NSW, specialising in antique clocks, furniture and objects of art. They include bronze, mirrors, copper, art, treasures and an assortment of fantastic items before the 19th century. John Meyer senior started in 1966 “Meyers Secondhand and
Antiques” in Sydney, NSW.
John Meyer junior has continued the tradition but within a new light! Married to beautiful Isabelle from Aix en Provence France with four children; Vincent (2009) and Julia (2011) and Daniel (2016), and Audrey (2019) That makes 3 born in February and one nearly there in the 29th of January, whom now reside in Dijon Burgundy, and import to Australia 20 or 40 ‘footer’ containers every year. Not only are the items very special but John has been able to fill a container to the maximum possible, passing on the best possible prices to his clients. Each container weighs in at about 5-10 tonnes, but in the last 2years, he hit a new record weighing in at 9.698 tonnes which takes 6 full days to pack! John has a long record of excellent buying and numerous clients are happy to talk about their purchases on request. Every year, except 2010, John has cleared the majority of the container in one month, proving the quality and value of the stock!
