Every antique dealer finds a uniquely satisfying way of conducting their business to best meet customer expectations. At Baldwin House, we strive to present quality pre-1850 decorative arts that to a very large extent have not previously appeared on the market. By dealing directly with owners, who in many cases are moving into one of Lancaster County’s many retirement homes, we procure items with a documented history that is forwarded along to the buyer.
Not only do we look for form and condition, but place a value upon provenance, exhibition history, references, and photos of the item.
Families treasured these objects, and we wish to pass along a sense of this appreciation.
If you’re looking for “shabby chic,” spray painted white, you are in the wrong place. Furniture, clocks, fraktur, art, ceramics, folk art, and textiles are our venue.
At Baldwin House, visitors will find wonderful examples of Pennsylvania furniture and textiles including quilts, samplers and other fine pieces, as well as folk art and metals. Many items, on the market for the first time.
All are presented in authentic 18th Century stone farmhouse charm.
Situated in the picturesque Beaver Creek Valley of Southern Lancaster County and surrounded by a vibrant Amish community.
We hope that while you are in the Strasburg,
Lancaster County area that you will also take
the opportunity to visit this historic town –noted for having more eighteenth century dwellings than Colonial Williamsburg.
Please contact us if there are specific objects on your wish list and plan a visit. Baldwin House welcomes you.
