Art Gallery with Bed & Breakfast Located 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 330 years. Once you enter the Art Gallery, it is obvious that we love to curate beautiful objects for display in our selected exhibits.

Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and our focus is 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 material culture and after many hours of study...I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a valuation professional and today remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or objects passed down for many generations.

The Art Gallery has been transformed into a Bed and Breakfast with five guest rooms and breakfast served daily. Guests have an opportunity to experience simple luxury and the Historic Philadelphia neighborhood.

Etsy is our online Art Gallery and Boutique for Bread n Butter Antiques - Fine Gifts and Interiors

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

I am a collector of material culture with a passion for provenance and photography. The Art Gallery is an alternative space to showcase art and objects. We invite artists to display their artwork along with the art and objects in the collection. The Art Gallery emerges from the perfect historical home to showcase our entire collection. Historically inspired interior design with a modern twist of essential luxury.

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.
