BÁV

BÁV

At the very end of Falk Miksa, on the corner of Szent István Korut (Saint Stephen Boulevard) in Budapest, Hungary, you will find BÁV, a 230-year-old, three-story, state-owned consignment store with many a high-end buying opportunity. This is where down-at-the-heels aristocrats or local gentry, fed up with their heavy Hungarian heirlooms, offer those treasures at irresistible prices. Recently on view were a French secretary with inlaid mother of pearl for less than $2,000, a 1950s Venetian chandelier for under $500 and, for a song, several antique crystal chandeliers.
