English Georgian glass and porcelain, American folk art and portraits, miniature paintings, and early textiles. We have extensive expertise and interest in those and other areas, including English pottery and decorative accessories of the 18th and 19th c, and in American formal, high country, and paint decorated furniture from 1740-1830.
We have been in business as Leslie Antiques Ltd. for over 30 years, and count among our customers many of the top dealers and collectors. We have, on many occasions, lectured on English glass, both in person and on television, been on vetting committees for various antiques shows, and contributed to a major museum presentation on miniatures on ivory. We are often asked to advise on the appropriateness of acquisitions for landmark and historic homes.
The most important thing about us, however, is that we sell things we are knowledgeable about and love for the beauty of the craftsmanship and the history behind them. We don't treat items as just units of merchandise, and we don't sell things that have a long list of condition apologies attached to them.
Please take some time to look at our website to see some of the things we enjoy, and sell, and are interested in buying.
We maintain a varied inventory and will also be glad to search for items on a commission basis, or to examine lots and bid for you at auction. And, of course, we are always interested in buying fine antiques, 18th century drinking glasses and porcelain, folk art, and paintings. Please feel free to contact us regarding anything from a single item to an estate.
