The focus at Gallery 51 is promoting the appreciation, conservation and collection of fine antique textile art. With more than twenty years experience as a private purveyor of rare textiles, I now offer both residential and commercial customers a wide selection of rare, visually compelling textiles with great aesthetic merits for use in home or office settings. We also offer a variety of related services, such as consultation, procurement services, conservation, evaluation, brokerage, mounting, and collection management.
Clients include collectors, dealers and designers around the world, and several important American museums. Formal, written appraisals can also be prepared according to standards approved by the Appraisers Association of America, for the purposes of insurance, inheritance, donation or loss.
