Antiques e-tailer Phantom Hands secures funding from investors

The company will use the capital raised to expand to new geographies and add more categories, according to the report.

Bangalore-based Phantom Hands Vintage Collectibles LLP, the company behind Phantom Hands, an online shop for antique products, has bagged an undisclosed amount in funding from four individuals, including Rajan Anandan, head of Google India, and Ravi Shah, director of Mumbai-based design firm Mind’s Eye Creative, according to a report by Forbes India. 
 
 
The company will use the capital raised to expand to new geographies and add more categories, according to the report.
 
 
E-mail query mailed to Phantom Hands’s co-founders Aparna Rao and Deepak Srinath for more details remained unanswered.
 
 
Phantom Hands was founded last year by Rao and Srinath. Rao is a contemporary artist, making sculptures and installations. She is also a senior TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) fellow. Srinath’s professional experience spans across technology startups, entrepreneurial ventures and investment banking.
 
 
Phantom Hands is an online store for curated rare antiques and collectibles. Each product has the details including the period in history it belongs to, its provenance, condition, dimensions, besides prices.
 
 
The idea was born out of the duo's combined interest in handcrafted furniture, design, history and mythology. Since they cannot possibly buy and keep all the objects, Phantom Hands allows them to play a part in their preservation by helping others discover them.
