Phoenix Ancient Art (formally incorporated in 1995) is a 2nd generation Ancient Art business run by the Aboutaam family. Founded in 1968 by the late S. Aboutaam, growing from a private gallery only offering private showings, to a major antiquities house that opened its doors to the public and to great successes. Ali and Hicham Aboutaam, S. Aboutaam’s sons, grew up breathing the the antiquities trade, and it was only natural that they would take over the business. In 1998 they stepped into their father’s shoes, and Hicham Aboutaam and his team manage the New York City gallery, while Ali manages the Geneva gallery.
