The history of the Roussos antiques firm dates back to 1908 when Nicholas Roussos maintained an antique shop in Constantinople. Moving to Athens he opened an antique shop in Pandrosou Street at Monastiraki. He and his son in law Theodoros Giannopoulos were two of the founders of the Hellenic Association of Antiquarians and Art dealers, in which the present owner of the shop is still active member.
The founder of the firm Nicholas Roussos kept the shop until 1940 having his son Homer Roussos on his side. In 1945 Homer Roussos took over the business, which was located at first in Pandrosou Street at Monastiraki to move later at Syntagma Square, 3 Stadiou Street, where it remains until today.
His deep love for works of art brought his son Nicholas Roussos in the family business in 1969 where he remains until 1989 when he took the initiative to establish the business in a new shop in the same address. Following the family tradition, Marilena Roussou started her personal business dealing with antique works of art and working towards the evolution of the works of art in the collectors, historical and conjectural area
