Private Collection In Historic Philadelphia
BnB is for 'bread n butter' plates, our petite passion.
- Mission -
Representing luxury that is good for the individual, good for the planet, good for society.
Conservation and preservation of material culture.
In the beginning I was a collector of stamps. My grandfather gave me an antique watch and our family entrusted me with a treasure trove of antique objects. Part of a family of collectors, I live in a home filled with art and antiques inherited from family. Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore furniture. Understandably there are some incredible antiques in a family from the Philadelphia region for over 330 years. Once you enter the BnB Gallery, it is obvious that we love to buy beautiful objects but may not wish to sell them, especially family heirlooms.
Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and our focus is on preservation and provenance. I was the only son to get the collecting bug, and like most collectors, I started out early. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes sealed for generations, filled with objects that had belonged to our ancestors. Rooting around and unearthing precious items under the house one day, I decided I wanted to be involved with the conservation of material culture in one way or another. I decided to study antiques and after many hours of study... I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a professional appraiser and today I remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or objects passed down for many generations.
Our home has been transformed into an Art Gallery filled with material culture and five unique guest rooms where breakfast is served daily.
Guests have an opportunity to experience the historic Philadelphia neighborhood and our comfortable organic style that changes naturally.
I am a collector with a passion for provenance and photography. The Gallery is an alternative space to showcase art and material culture. We invite artists to display their work along with the art and objects in the collection. The Gallery is the perfect historical home to showcase our collection of material culture. Interior design inspired by history with perhaps a contemporary modern twist.
The Gallery is open daily and operates as a full-service bed and breakfast as well as hosting private events, corporate office functions and gallery tours in historical Philadelphia.
