Robert Steffen married into a family who had been in the antique business for generations in England where he learned the trade. He purchased an Antiques Shop established in the 1930's which he opened as The Steffen Collection in Portsmouth England in the 1970's. After three years in the UK, we decided to close the business and move to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Our first two years were wholesale to the trade. The Lake Geneva shop had 12,000 square ft and we specialized in English and French antiques. Our shop photo logo is of the Lake Geneva Shop.
For many years we traveled back and forth to England and France where we hand picked and direct shipped containers from both the UK and France to our shop in Wisconsin. We also assembled and purchased for American clients and shipped many containers to an auction house in Texas. Later we added extensive purchasing in the United States and our interests and research expanded to Africa, Asia, and the Southwest. At that point our inventories became International.
In 2000 the business was closed and we sold the property and moved to Phoenix Arizona where we semi-retired but continued to trade at Antiques On Central and The Antique Gatherings. We currently sell exclusively on Ruby Lane and reside in Tucson Arizona.......
