Czech Antiques

Where and How to Purchase Czech Antiques

By

Like many other Eastern European countries, the Czech Republic requires export licenses for some Czech antiques and art:
  • Objects d'art over 125 USD in value
  • Paintings over 1250 USD in value
  • Graphics over 50 years in age
  • Glass over 50 years in age
  • Anything that could possibly be considered important to the national heritage of the Czech Republic
  • Any antique that is particularly old

Legitimate antique dealers will provide you with the appropriate export licenses. They are also issued by the Export License Department of the Czech Museum of Decorative Arts. You will need these for customs checks upon departure if you are carrying items of cultural value.
