About Us
We are Arnold Jaffe and Diane Thurston and have been serving discriminating collectors since 1978. Our professional name is Jaffe and Thurston. Our specialty is 19th and 20th Century American and European art. Other focuses are 19th Century ceramics, including Chinese export porcelain, and American and European cut glass from all periods (early through brilliant period). We left careers in academia and research consulting and have used this background in our approach to our current profession. Items we sell are carefully researched through many sources including an extensive reference library accumulated over the last 39 years.

In addition to our concern with authenticity and documentation (extremely important for the sale and collecting of paintings) another emphasis is presentation. Paintings always look best in period or appropriate period style frames. Our interest in ceramics and glass began when we opened our business. In these areas we always seek to acquire the best quality available while maintaining reasonable prices. Through our years of exhibiting at top quality antiques shows we built a broad client base many of whom have used our services to establish or fill out their collections.

Beginning in December, 2017 we opened a gallery booth at a group shop in Deerfield, Massachusetts. The name of the shop is "Arts& Antiques on 5 & 10" located at 717 Greenfield Road, Deerfield, Massachusetts. This new venue will give us a chance to put on exhibitions with unified themes. Check our Ruby Lane shop announcements for the latest exhibit. We shall continue to use the internet to reach out to both established and new clients.
