About Us
Our shop is currently located in Kensington, Maryland, and has been for the past 15 years. We were previously located at The Four Seasons Shop in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. We specialize in antique furniture, fine and decorative art, and antique, estate, and contemporary jewelry. Our collection of jewelry includes a wide array of cufflinks and stick pins for the gentleman, as well as every other conceivable form of jewelry for the ladies.

Our inventory changes daily, as we are always purchasing. Feel free to contact us about specific items for which you are searching. Also, feel free to contact us with individual pieces or collections with which you wish to part.

Lawrence Perlmutter has been in the antiques business his entire life, opening his first shop in Bethesda, Maryland at the age of 11. Antiques are in his blood and his family. The magnitude of his knowledge on furniture, Asian Antiques, and Fine Art, exhibits great depth and confidence.

Karen Perlmutter, his wife, joined the business 25 years ago, and has developed a vast knowledge in fine jewelry and small decorative objects and collectibles. As the site will reveal, Karen has a keen and broad eye for unique examples of beautifully crafted jewels in both gold and silver. She appreciates quality and craftsmanship.

We strive to make your shopping experience pleasurable. Any questions you ever have, we are open to helping you find an answer!
