I have been an antique dealer since around 1970, and a full-time dealer since 1993. I have always dealt in American antique furniture, mainly cherry and figured maple — functional pieces in good condition. Beginning in the late 1960’s we were, in addition, quilt specialists – when very few antique dealers were handling them. For several years we had a huge inventory, would sell from our house, at Brimfield (yes, I was doing Brimfield when there was only one field there), at Pennsylvania markets, and at Russell Carrell shows.
Around 1990, I would occasionally buy antique picture frames. The 19th-century lemon gold ones would sell quickly. That began my interest, study, and near daily pursuit of simple American gilt frames. I maintain an inventory of over 500 19th-century antique frames. While most people still think of me as an antique dealer, some people now think of me primarily as an antique frame dealer.
We have a shop in a barn on our home property. We are open by appointment or by chance (a call ahead is advisable). Our home/business phone is 914-245-2481. I rarely turn on my cell phone (914-522-7172), but my wife often has her cell phone on (914-262-0825).
