In 1985, António Manuel Amante pursued his passion for and extensive experience in the industry, founding Espadim in Lisbon’s Amoreiras Shopping Center, the iconic meeting point for the upper middle and upper classes in the Portuguese capital. Under the trust of Portuguese Antique Dealers Association, Espadim was one of the first houses to specialize in the business of buying and selling of fine jewelry, timepieces, gold and silverware. And we became widely reputed for our exceptional customer service and refined taste. In 2006, the second store opened in downtown Lisbon, the city’s heart of elegance, prosperity and glamour.
