We Buy Antiques

We are always interested in purchasing nautical antiques. If you are selling one piece or your entire collection we would appreciate hearing from you.

We are hoping to print and mail our next catalog(#39) in the spring of 2016. It has been held back since 2014 due to possible law changes related to all animal ivory commerce, even antique pieces. That said if you are a current subscriber to our catalogs please advise us of any changes in your mailing address.
