Calle de José Ortega y Gasset, 8, 28006 Madrid, Madrid, Spain
Antiques dealer Jose Carlos Mendez Garcia has a sliver of a shop on the grand fashion street in Salamanca that cannot be seen from the street. You have to enter into the foyer of the residential building to see his entry but a glimpse will entice you into his store of treasures. Mixed in with 18th century furniture are exceptional objects, lamps, clocks and sculptures. One section of the floor is plexiglass to reveal a cache of porcelain plates on display.
