I am a second generation antiques dealer born and raised on Cape Cod. My experience with buying and selling antiques started with the opening of my parents' antiques shop in 1958. In addition to working in the shop, I bought and sold coins and autographs and gradually started dealing in antiques. I continued to deal on a limited basis during my years in the Navy and college. After a stint of teaching school, I became a full-time dealer in Tennessee. 

Moving home in 1982, I became curator of the art museum at (the then) Heritage Plantation of Sandwich. During my ten-year tenure there, I worked with a wide variety of objects and curated six major exhibitions with accompanying catalogues. These include: Plain and Fancy, New England Painted Furniture (1987), Arts of the Federal Period (1989), Romancing the Shore, Views of Coastal New England (1990), Slipped and Glazed, Regional American Redware (1991), The Songless Aviary, the World of A.E. Crowell and Son (1992) and The Material Culture of Plymouth Colony (1994). I also researched and published numerous articles on decorative arts during this time and worked with a number of museums and historical societies in assisting in the evaluation of their collections.


I have been a full-time antiques dealer since leaving the academic field in 1995. I specialize in ceramics, especially American redware, early American furniture with a particular emphasis on form and surface and the rarely encountered esoteric objects of our past. I fully guarantee all pieces that I sell to be as described. I am primarily a show dealer but have a shop by appointment. My services also include acting as an agent to evaluate and purchase objects from auction houses or third parties. I am always interested in purchasing items of interest be it a single object or a whole collection.
