Jules has more than 30 years experience to his active, and since 1990, has been collaborating with his wife, Aicha. They deal mainly in Switzerland and in France, and their research extends to the rest of Europe, where they are always on the lookout for unique pieces. They have been supplying museums, world-renowned galleries and interior designers with rare pieces of furniture. Their interest covers antiques, from archaeological finds to contemporary pieces and modern design, as well as Haute Époque, Renaissance and the 18th Century, with a special interest in Old Master Drawings, prints, paintings and ceramics. They also buy books, sculptures and old photographs. Always on the move, from one fair to another, they visit large and small galleries as well as private clients. Aicha and Jules are well-known figures in Geneva, having discovered, hidden beneath a pastel a painting, that very seemingly appears to be a portrait of a late 19th-Century actress, demi-mondaine Mary Laurent, by Edouard Manet.
