About Us

We sell a selection of mainly French furniture and decorative objects of the 17th to 19th centuries as well as European old master paintings, drawings, and prints. The decorative objects include bronzes and other statuary as well as porcelain, particularly Sevres, and faïence, lighting, clocks, and eclectic and unclassifiable pieces. We place a high value on documentation—the stories a piece has to tell.

We have a space – not exactly a shop – in Philadelphia, and we invite you to contact us to arrange a visit. The space is in a renovated historical factory complex, the former Globe Dye Works (http://www.globedyeworks.com). We also trade through the internet and a selection of shows. The “news” section of this site contains a schedule of upcoming shows.

This website contains some of our current inventory. Contact us further if you are interested in a piece on the site or if, on the contrary, you are looking for something that is not on the site. We regularly exhibit at antique shows. We buy antique French furniture and decorative objects of all sorts, including paintings and drawings. We are especially interested in pieces from the 18th and early 19th centuries, and earlier. We are happy to purchase items from individuals, estates, or institutions, provided these items fit in with our inventory and interests. No reproductions, please.
