About Us
My husband and I have been antiques dealers for a combined fifty-five years. We met fifteen years ago at a large antiques show in Massachusetts. My husband, from the Boston area, was a specialist in American art glass, silver and jewelry. I was a participating dealer from Canada, my specialty, English and continental porcelains and decorative accessories.

We have happily combined our specialties, our passion for antiques and our love of travel. As often as possible we find ourselves ‘going down the country roads’ here, along the east coast, as well as through England and France in search of rare, unusual and quality pieces.

We have been shop owners both in Canada and the United States, eBay Power Sellers for over twelve years, and we participate in most of the major antiques shows along the eastern seaboard from Maine to Texas. My husband has lectured on American art glass at the Corning Museum and at several glass associations throughout the US. He is USPAP certified and heads the appraisal department of a major Massachusetts auction house.

We have always guaranteed the authenticity of everything we sell and will continue that practice on Ruby Lane. We pledge honest and accurate descriptions, fair prices and prompt email response. Purchases will be safely packed and quickly shipped. We will strive to make your shopping experience with us as successful and pleasant as we can.
