fossils art, designed by Annesuse Raquet
Design, manufacturing and assembling are yet “hand made in Germany”;with component parts coming from all over the world.
Each object is unique and comes with a numbered leather label.

Annesuse Raquet has been active in international fossil trading since many years and ranks among the most renowned dealers within the industry. She quickly put her focus on aesthetic exhibits which were shown at international exhibitions and can be viewed publicly in museums.
In 2011 she started her own label “annsus – take a look”, where fossil and stone objects are being designed and merchandised.

Her special design technique consists of combining extraordinary fossils with high quality materials such as minerals, wood, acrylic, lotus leaves and precious metals. Thus she creates outstanding objects for walls and tables as well as free standing items.
As an extravagant form of art they fascinate the contemplator. The vivid design makes these fossils seem immortal and eclipse the fact that they are million year old prehistoric relicts. These modern compositions are absolutely in line with the trend in upscale interior design.

Please note: For carefully packing and safe transportation, we have to built boxes. We help you to find the best transportation to your destination. The export documents for all customs declaration will be done. Therefore we need approximately 3-7 days. It is also possible, to pick up the purchased items in Germany.

The fossils are my rightful properties; claims of third parties do not exist. They are not listed in the “National Directory of valuable cultural assets” and fossils do not belong to the “Washington Agreement”. Any reproduction must be first requested in writing and approved by the artist.

  • Fast delivery. The ammonite was extremely fragile, but the seller took great care in packaging it so it traveled from Germany to USA in perfect condition.

    In de uiteindelijke rekening zitten verborgen kosten onder de noemer verpakkingskosten. Deze kosten zijn niet direct zichtbaar in de veilingstekst. En dat is op zijn minst niet netjes.

    Really can't you see that? As I know, this 1,50 € will be charged for all sales by Catawiki. It is an automatically add.

    Sorry that you did not notice that. But I can tell you, your purchase was an absolute bargain! Even with the transportation and packaging costs. Congrats!

    I am sorry about the missunderstanding. Please search in the internet or ask other fossil collectors / dealers about the following: Gluing of fossils and the surrounding stones is legal. There are a lot of places worldwide, where fossils only can be found, through splitting the stones with a hammer. Normally it is not neceessary to declare that the stone was found in parts.

    I did not think about, that I might have to declare it, because at the photos the glued line in front was visible. I learned from you dissatisfaction and I guess, I add a sentence in my describtions in the future.

    Furthermore I want that you know: You can be sure, the price you paid for that lovely fossil piece is a reasonable price. You made a really good purchase.
