Galleons Lost, a subsidiary of Voyager International Inc., that brings the Treasure of the Island Kings collection to Charleston will hold a grand opening reception on Friday, May 7, 2010 from 5 to 8 p.m. during the French Quarter Art Walk. The store is located at 165 King Street, downtown Charleston, SC.
Rich Mutschler, ethnographic art dealer, expedition leader and collector, invites you to experience timeless authentic artifacts and rare objects from the spice routes to China dated back to the 16th and 17th centuries in a unique gallery setting. The treasure gallery offers investment and museum quality sunken pirate treasure including shipwreck coins, gold doubloons, pieces of eight, black pearls, gold treasure and jewelry, Spanish and Portuguese canons and armaments and more.
Most Charlestonians know that in 1718 the most famous pirate of all time, Blackbeard, blockaded the port of Charles Town. Galleons Lost, a unique sunken treasures shop, features all the plunder and loop that Blackbeard would have sought on the ‘Spanish Main’ through his long career. Today, some of this Spanish, British, Dutch and Portuguese treasure is being recovered from shipwrecks that lay undisturbed beneath the water of Southeast Asia. Galleons Lost brings the mystery and the lure of treasure hidden for centuries to the Holy City.
