Many of these antiques have been in the family for some time. A recent move has thrust me into a situation where dwindling space if of a premium. In addition, I wish to create a flavor and style of my own, and the current motif just does not suit me. Selecting what to hold on to and to let go of was not easy, but I think the items I have chosen to find new homes for are really interesting.

The Asian porcelain and china is, of course, imported and roughly 60-100 years old.

Additional items such as a few 200 year old collectible books will be added soon. One is by Benjamin Rush MD! Quite a rare find, indeed.

Any questions regarding any item you see here can be directed to me via e-mail to
