About Baidun Fine Antiquities

Collections described on this web site are being made available for purchase by Baidun Fine Antiquities - located on Jerusalem's Via Dolorosa. Since 1927, the Baidun family has been associated with a well-known and longstanding antiquities business - responsible for collections spanning from the Iron Age to the Ottoman Empire.  The Baidun collection began with early purchases of antiquities prior to Israeli control of the West Bank.

With the video on the left, we invite you to meet business owner Mr. Khader Baidun. Get to know his passion for the history, religions, cultures and peoples of the Levant. And the Baidun family’s desire to preserve this legacy for generations yet to come. 

As exemplified by the two letters highlighted on this page, Mr. Khader Baidun has met and is respected by leaders in Israel and globally. His guestbook has been signed by figures ranging from presidents of seminaries to world-recognized rock-stars. This correspondence is available to be included as part of the purchase of all Baidun family collections.
