In September 2012, Online Galleries was acquired by 1stdibs, the world’s largest online marketplace for rare and desirable objects. Combined, Online Galleries and 1stdibs represent over 300 dealers in the UK and 2,500 dealers worldwide, with more than 35,000 items in the Online Galleries marketplace alone, ranging from paintings, furniture, and jewelry to collectibles and musical instruments.
Online Galleries continues to be a leading resource for the industry through its close working relationship with all CINOA-affiliated trade associations and their member dealers. Additionally, Online Galleries designs and develops bespoke websites for high-end art and antique dealers, art and antiques fairs, and leading trade associations including The British Antique Dealers' Association.
Online Galleries' Managing Director Carmine Bruno has assumed the role of Managing Director of 1stdibs UK, bringing with him the entire Online Galleries staff to provide an unrivaled experience for top collectors, buyers, designers, and academics.
