About Capital Treasures

Located just outside of Washington, D.C., Capital Treasures sells vintage collectibles, dolls, and porcelain. I first learned about antiques and collectibles growing up, as I tagged along with my mother to antique malls, estate sales, and garage sales. She had a passion for antiques, and I absorbed a lot by watching her, but I never thought I would be involved in the business myself. Then, several years ago, I began selling antiques and collectibles from the estates of relatives.

As an estate attorney, I know the value of subject mastery. With each item I sold I would learn the item's history, what the collector's marks on each item meant, how items were categorized, etc. I developed expertise in porcelain collectibles, specifically collectibles that were German in origin, European porcelain dishes, and vintage and antique dolls. I deal quite a bit in collectible figurines, but I have a particular love of rare China and have my own extensive collection.

Recently I have teamed up with a former law school classmate who lives and works in Dallas and has expertise in vintage dolls, particularly older American Girl doll collections. Look for new additions to the shop coming soon.
