About Antiques from Home
Our Service PledgeI can guarantee that all the items offered for sale by Antiques from Home have been examined and researched and that all the information I have gleaned including any indications of use or damage, date and place of manufacture, and authenticity will be shared in my descriptions. I pack and ship carefully, normally via the USPS, and fully insure to the purchase price every fragile item in my store. I welcome feedback from my satisfied customers and will promptly rectify any problems.
About UsMy shop features my favorite area of collecting: ceramics from the English Art Deco era. The works of three women from the 1930's stand out: Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper and Charlotte Rhead. Other fine ceramics in my shop include Moorcroft, Wemyss, McCoy, and mid-century Poole. My passion for and interest in ceramics takes me into other categories: vintage Cornish Ware and Domino Ware from England, antique and vintage Quimper faience from France, Peasant Art Pottery made in Czechoslovakia in the 1920's and 30's, and 19th century American and English ironstone molds, sponge wares and yellow wares. The embossed and colorful ceramics from the 1930's led me to their forerunner: 19th century Majolica. I gather ceramics in England every year from reputable sellers as well as buying in the US.
Another passion is gardening (I volunteer at Smithsonian Gardens as a writer and cataloger for the online Archives of American Gardens) so also stock vintage garden accessories and other decorative metals that I offer at antiques shows on the east coast. I've started listing some vintage gardenalia in my Ruby Lane shop - the ones that are small or light enough to ship and complement the ceramics plant pots and vases in my shop.
Finally, Antiques from Home wouldn't be complete without my textiles: American quilts, English linens and lace and occasionally beautiful handiwork from earlier times. Look for these to start appearing in this shop, soon.
