About YK Antiques


Welcome to YK Antiques

Welcome to my blog!! I have always had a special interest towards collecting antiques. Having travelled extensively both in India and abroad, I have collected antiques from different places over the years. They now are my prized possessions which are proudly displayed in my house.  Each and every item that I have in my collection has a special significance and a story behind it. Most of the items were very much a part of daily life a decade back. But gradually they have faded into oblivion and have been replaced by the modern marvels. It is my dream to showcase the cultural antiques I have collected and share their stories with anyone who may have an interest in knowing more. This blog is a realization of my dream to create an online viewing of my collection and to reach out to a wider audience.

I have tried to give as much information as possible about each antique piece and will be happy if readers can add any further information to it. These cultural antiques are the living legends of the times gone by. I have collected these antiques with an eye for beauty and antiquity. Behind every antique piece there was an artist whose signature workmanship and mark is revealed with the design and function. I hope you enjoy viewing this blog as much as I do in presenting this to you. Happy viewing experience!


Thank you for visiting my blog.

  1. Namaskaram murthy gaaru,i have read your article about brass sambrani incense holder,i liked it very much,i want to use it for my newborn baby for dhoop,can you please guide me where to buy that brass incense sambrani holder..Thanks in advance.

    1. Thank you for visiting our website and writing to us, Shweta gaaru. The one that we have in our collection is an antique which I acquired long back. If you are looking for an antique sambrani holder, we will spread the word in our network and see if we can find one. It isn’t something that’s easily available.  

      For your immediate use, you may consider using a clay sambrani incense holder. The ones made with clay do not transmit heat and are considerably safer to handle for you and your baby. 
      Hope this helps. Will share any leads as and when we find something relevant. Take care.
