Updates

May your life be filled with beauty.
It's amazing to see the restorations of silver after it has been recovered and gone across my bench. These are early 18th century Boston silver spoons in 'as found' condition.
Here's a recent recovery before restoration. Diamond in the rough!

About

The Connection to Meaning

I grew up in an area rich in history in the South surrounded by tales of the past. It's unsurprising that I am passionate about objects that provide powerful connections to our history. Possibly my best experiences as a trader relate to returning lost family heirlooms to the rightful descendants.

As for many of us, it is the finding and not the having for me. When a customer says, 'this reminds me of something my grandmother wore every day', I feel I have done my job connecting someone powerfully to the meaning of their past. No matter where it is, never forget where you come from.

Frequently asked questions
Layaway?

I consider multiple payments on a case by case basis. To do this, you will need to tell me how many payments you want to make and you will need to make the first payment right away. Contact me to set it up.

Can you put it on hold?

I can put an item on hold for a defined period of time. Contact for details.

Can I make an offer?

If you see something you want, but can't pay the price, make me an offer. The worst that might happen is I'll say no...

How do you date your items

Date estimates are based on research of comps as well as information gleaned from reference books, forums, and experience.

Why won't you fulfill my order?

I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.
