The Baidun name has been involved with antiquities business since 1927. Founded by Mahmud Baidun, the Baidun business enjoys a reputable and respected name.
In the year 1927 Mahmūd Baidun founded what would become Khader M. Baidun Galleries in the city of Jerusalem. His love and deep knowledge made him one of the most prominent collectors in the region. Acting as an advisor to many dealers and collectors, his counsel was sought out by many.
His passion for history and collecting was passed down to his son Khader, who as a young boy would dig around the city walls looking for antiquities. Taking over the galleries in 1980, Khader’s integrity and expertise produced a great international expansion for the Gallery.
