Shop Description: We are country Americana dealers who search for pre-1850 furnishings that are functional, well constructed and have great and sometimes unique form with wonderful paint and patina. With appreciation for all craftsmen of that period, we travel throughout the east coast to find American furniture, early lighting, treenware/woodenware, kitchen/hearth implements as well as other interesting accessories from that period. After years of collecting we opened our business in the year 2000 and continue to utilize the same criteria in making our purchases for the business as we do for ourselves.
