Gloria N. Greenwald | 276 Brush Hill Road, Litchfield, Ct., 06759 | 860.567.2791 | gloriagreenwald@gmail.com

We have been dealing in early 18th & 19th century country antiques and folk art since 1989. The major Americana antique shows of the Northeast were a focus for many years. Having retired from the show circuit in 2006, we now concentrate on selling privately and online. We deal primarily in country smalls including painted boxes and bowls, lighting, iron and tinware, and baskets. We look for makers who understood form and function, even when handcrafting rather primitive objects. Our preference is for pieces that please the eye AND perform a function. WE OFFER AN EASY LAYAWAY PLAN FOR OUR BUYERS
