A delightful range of rare vintage jewellery, antique silver and quirky curiosities sourced locally and around the world.
Bancroft, The most exciting collector’s shop in Sandton Johannesburg, is a delightful store full of quirky antique, vintage and contemporary items in Village Walk Shopping Centre in the heart of the Sandton CBD run by Paul Mrkusic.
A family-run business since 1988, Bancroft has a superb range of antique English silver, including some rare Georgian pieces, and excellent range of antique silver Judaica, antique corkscrews, original maps from the 1600’s onwards, vintage jewellery, and a superb range of furniture, with some of the best pieces of Art Deco available in Johannesburg. Bancroft also has the largest range of men’s cufflinks for sale in the city.
Bancroft also stocks the contemporary South African range of “Ivan” jewellery. Mixing precious metals in the Mokume Gane range, or setting strips of local hardwoods into the jewellery, it is one of the most popular designer jewellery ranges for custom-made men’s wedding rings.
Forget the image of a dusty old antique shop! With its Art Deco feel Bancroft is a fresh and cheerful vintage store, increasingly popular with the young and trendy “up-to-the-minute” set.
With his training as an architect and a keen eye for design, Paul is always happy to advise and consult with his clients to make sure he finds them what they are looking for, either informally at the shop, or through Spark Interiors, the associated design company he runs with business partner Daniel Calbacho.
Whether looking to invest in a special piece of period silverware, art or furniture, or you simply want an unusual piece of jewellery as a gift to your better half, with such a selection on offer, all one needs is time!
