Our Team

Our first shop, Antonio Bazaar, was opened on the Main Street in 1956 by Mr. Tulsidas Mahtani, who had been working in Gibraltar since 1948. During the 1950’s, the Royal Navy carried out frequent, large-scale exercises in the Straits of Gibraltar. As a result, a large number of servicemen would visit the Main Street looking for souvenirs and fancy gift items to take back home and Antonio’s became quite famous not only for its original hand-made souvenirs, but also for its fine silver jewellery and collectible gift items.

The business evolved through the 1970’s and 1980’s under the stewardship of Tulsidas’ son, Sunder Mahtani, into a classy porcelain boutique, with many of the souvenir lines and cheaper goods replaced by world-famous branded giftware like Lladró porcelain, Swarovski crystal, Wedgwood china, Herend porcelain, Goebel figurines, Royal Crown Derby and Royal Doulton.

In 1992, Tulsidas’ grandson, Suresh Mahtani, took over the running of the company as Managing Director. He quickly expanded the retail operation by adding two more outlets and in so doing, re-badged the company as the Antonio Jewellers Group in 1997.
