About

Private Antique & Art Collection In Historic Philadelphia

In the beginning I was a collector of stamps. My grandfather gave me an antique watch and our family entrusted me with a treasure trove of antique objects. Part of a family of collectors, I live in a home filled with art and antiques inherited from family. Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore furniture. Understandably there are some incredible antiques in a family from the Philadelphia region for over 300 years. Once you enter the BnB Gallery, it is obvious that we love to buy beautiful objects but may not wish to sell them, especially family heirlooms.

Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and the focus is more on preservation and provenance. I was the only son to get the collecting bug, and like most collectors, I started out early. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes sealed for generations, filled with objects that had belonged to our ancestors. Rooting around and unearthing precious items under the house one day, I decided I wanted to be involved with the conservation of antiques in one way or another. I decided to study antiques and after many hours of study...I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a professional antiques appraiser and today I remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or antiques passed down for many generations.

Our home has been transformed into an Antiques and Art Gallery with 5 Unique Guest Rooms and breakfast served daily. Guests have an opportunity to experience the Historic Philadelphia neighborhood and our comfortable organic style that naturally changes as our collection grows.

Etsy is our online boutique. Etsy is such a pleasure to work with and it is amazing to see such beautiful items all in one place. There are so many talented artists that it is easy to consider this venture more artistic than entrepreneurial.

I am a collector of antiques and art with a passion for provenance and photography. The Gallery in our home is an alternative space to showcase art & antiques and we invite artists to display their work along with the art and antiques in the collection. The BnB House is the perfect historical home to showcase our entire antique collection. Vintage inspired designs with a modern twist. The BnB Antiques and Art Gallery is open daily and operates as a full-service bed and breakfast as well as hosting private events, corporate office functions and gallery tours in historical Philadelphia.

    The next generation of collector. Some speculate that there are no antiques left, however Kurt thinks there is another way to see it and he is most interested in educating others about their valuables. - Kurt is a Certified Professional Appraiser.
