Antoun Franciss Ashkar

Bab Touma, Hanania Avenue, Damascus, Syria
In 1916, Franciss Ashkar started his work in mosaic at his workshop in Hanania alley and his shop near Bab Sharqi. The work expanded by time to include wood carving and oriental ornaments. Sezar and Francis Ashkar, grandsons of the business founder, opened another shop and expanded the business to include antiques, faience “qishani”, brocade and mosaic for furniture and wooden boxes. They also work now in oriental decoration works for hotels, restaurants, offices and houses.
