C.G. Boerner is a highly respected art dealership that has specialized in prints and drawings of the finest quality since it was founded in Leipzig in 1826. Located in Düsseldorf since 1950 and with a branch in New York since 1984, the firm has worked with the major museums and private collectors from its earliest days—when Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was an important client of the founder, Carl Gustav Boerner. While our reputation is chiefly based on our specialist knowledge of the prints of such old masters as Schongauer, Dürer, and Rembrandt as well as of the graphic work of the German Romantics, we can also offer excellent examples of the prints of many other important European artists, among them Goltzius, Bellange, Piranesi, Goya, Manet, and Degas. Additionally, in recent years we have handled exceptional works by such American printmakers as Whistler, Cassatt, Hopper, and Bellows. Our New York premises are located in the heart of the Chelsea art district. We have a rotating schedule of exhibitions throughout the year and regularly publish catalogues that we are delighted to send upon request.
Mallett is one of the oldest established antiques dealers in the world, specialising in the finest pieces of furniture and works of art, including pictures, clocks and other high quality objets d'art, primarily from the 18th century and Regency periods. For over 100 years Mallett has been sourcing important antiques with impeccable provenance for private collectors and the great museums of the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The business was founded in 1865 in Bath by John Mallett, a jeweller and silversmith, and was carried on by his son, Walter Mallett, who expanded the trade to include old silver and furniture. In 1910 a shop was opened in New Bond Street, London and in 1937 the business, by which time had become one of the leading antique dealers in England, moved to London with the Bath premises being closed. Ever since then the business's principal showroom has been in New Bond Street, London. In 2003 the business opened its showroom in Madison Avenue, New York, thus establishing itself in the two major centres of the international antiques market, London and New York. In 2008 Mallett launched two new businesses, Meta and James Harvey British Art. Meta is a venture dedicated to the pairing of cutting edge contemporary design by renowned designers and acclaimed master craftsmen with materials and production techniques from the 18th century to create beautiful contemporary furniture and objects. The defining factor is Mallett’s unparalleled knowledge of 18th century materials and the craftsmen who still work with these traditions. Meta’s inaugural collection was launched in Milan, New York and London in 2008 and its aim is to create design classics of a quality unseen in today’s contemporary market. James Harvey British Art is a gallery dedicated to promoting British Artists from the 17th century to the present day, with an emphasis on the less established names of the 18th and 19th centuries. The gallery, located in Chelsea, London, has been created from the picture department at Mallett which James Harvey has run for the previous 10 years. James has established himself as a knowledgeable and respected expert on British Artists and separating the department from Mallett under his leadership gives him the opportunity to market the pictures in a more specialised fashion. As well as dealing in antique furniture and works of art, Mallett has for many years had a restoration division with highly skilled craftsmen including cabinet makers, polishers and gilders restoring and conserving pieces for museums and private collectors. In 2007 Mallett merged this department into H J Hatfield & Sons Limited (Hatfields), one of the longest established and highly respected restoration businesses in the world. Mallett owns 60% of the merged entity with the existing owner of Hatfields, Gurr Johns Limited, retaining 40% and the enlarged business can now offer high quality restoration across a wide range of skills.

The Fred Moheban Gallery is a fine purveyor of antique rugs and carpets. Whether called antique Persian carpets or rugs, silk Persians, Heriz Persians, antique Oriental or antique European carpets - the most prized floor weavings in the world go by a variety of similar names. For over 50 years, our passion has been to find the rare antique rug or carpet that connotes the true artist, sometimes in those pieces that signify universal beauty through a grand palace-sized carpet, a room-sized jewel, or even a small prayer rug. Our collection of antique rugs and carpets spans the great weaving traditions of the 18th and 19th centuries and includes: from Persia, Heriz, Kashan, Sarouk, Serapi, Sultanabad and Tabriz; from Turkey, Oushak; from France, Aubusson and Savonnerie; from India, Agra and Amritsar; and from the Caucasus and Bessarabia.Since antique Oriental rugs and carpets first began to appear in the paintings of great Renaissance artists such as Holbein, they have been used to simultaneously furnish a room with beauty, variety and warmth, while indicating status and wealth on the part of the owner. Through the years their longevity has accorded them recognition as a sound financial investment; consequently antique rugs and carpets are sought out by high end designers and architects throughout the world. Because of our dedication to quality and integrity in antique rugs and carpets we have been awarded membership in the prestigious National Antique & Art Dealers Association of America. As the only antique rug and carpet dealer in the association, we are proud to uphold the association’s tradition of scholarship, provenance, authenticity, and condition. The association was founded in 1954 and its members have become the recognized authorities in their fields. We aspire to give the designers, decorators, collectors and architects that form our clientele the original design and rarity that they seek in an antique rug or carpet, whether it be tribal or made for the Western market. If it is for a hip young designer doing a loft in Soho or a collector in Rome, we try to find the work that will enhance the architecture of a home or place of business, bring the excitement of artistry and tradition into a modern ambiance, reveal the personality of the owner, or round out a collection.We have sent antique rugs and carpets to various points around the globe. Please go through our selection of antique rugs and carpets. We pride ourselves on our service and would love to help you.Sincerely, Fred and Rami Moheban
Founded in 1930 by Frank S. Schwarz, the Schwarz Gallery opened on Atlantic City's celebrated boardwalk as specialists in furniture and silver. Relocation to Philadelphia during the Second World War prompted an emphasis on the arts of Philadelphia, and paintings became the Gallery's focus when Frank Schwarz's son Robert joined the firm during the 1960s. In the following years, under the direction of the founder's son Robert D. Schwarz, Sr. and widow Marie D. Schwarz, the Gallery focused on nineteenth- and twentieth-century European and American paintings and became recognized as the nation's major source for the work of Philadelphia artists from Pennsylvania's founding through the mid-twentieth century.Robert D. Schwarz, Sr. earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Dickinson College, and supplemented his studies in the fine arts at the University of Vienna and the Barnes Foundation. As curator of The Stephen Girard Collection from 1970 to 1980, he documented this important Philadelphia collection in a scholarly catalog. Subsequently, his publication of more than seventy informative catalogs in conjunction with the Gallery's exhibitions has established the firm's excellence in its field.Robert D. Schwarz, Jr. joined the firm in 2002 and became the Gallery’s third generation president after the untimely death of Robert Sr. in 2004. As the Gallery looks toward the future, its focus on nineteenth century American art remains the backbone of its renowned collection.Museum SalesThe Gallery is fortunate to have placed works in the following museumsAdirondack Museum, Blue Mt.
