Founder and owner Ron Clarke comments “we have exceptional silver, great American and English furniture, the porcelain plaques, Judaica, and just catalogued, an apothecary cabinet filled with miniature doll furniture. But my personal favorites are the signed bronzes of dogs, and the fine portrait of Silvio, the terrier.
