Bartele Gallery

Bartele Gallery is the only Gallery shop in Indonesia for Rare Antique Maps, Prints, Photographs, Books and Antiquities, some over 500 years old. Ideal for a unique memento or decorative art piece investment from Indonesia.

Bartele Gallery, founded in 2009 by Bartele Santema, is located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Thamrin (Jakarta). Even if you’re not looking to buy, it’s fascinating to research or just browse our endless collection. In 2014, a second antique map store opened in Langweer (Friesland, The Netherlands), with a broad range of historical maps and prints.

Our Asian collection can be found on bartelegallery.com. For our international collection with many more antique maps and decorative vintage prints, go to maps-prints.com.

Our gallery in Jakarta is located in the lobby of in the prestigious Mandarin Oriental Hotel right in the business center, where one can browse an eclectic collection of rare and antique maps and old prints, many of them beautifully framed.

Of course, most of these maps and prints are associated with Indonesia: Batavia, Spice Islands, Sumatra, Java and much, much more. Maps of SE Asia are also well represented. Any of these items would make an extraordinary business, or private, gift or eye-catching decoration for your office or home.

You are cordially invited to visit and browse whenever you find yourself in Jakarta. A visit would make an excellent way to spend a morning or afternoon, and our knowledgeable staff is keen on assisting or advising on framing options.
