Leah Gordon Antiques is open Monday through Friday, 1 P.M. to 6 P.M. We will respond to your e-mail requests promptly and always will be happy to see you in the gallery. For those of you who have never done business with us, you may have some hesitation buying unseen from an unknown. We understand your reservation. Consequently,we would like to introduce you to a few objective references that will validate our credentials. I advertise six times a year in the Magazine Antiques, which is the pre-eminent and most trusted publication in the field. I am a member of the American Art Pottery Association and the American Society of Jewelry Historians. I attended New York University studying appraising in the decorative arts with an emphasis on the history of jewelry design. My thesis was on Georg Jensen, the outstanding 20th century silver designer, and subsequently the thesis was published in Heritage magazine. If you would like further references before buying, I will be happy to furnish them. I am also interested in buying heirlooms within my area of expertise I hope you enjoy the website.Just to let you know, we will be closed from February 22 - February 27 2012 and will be unable to respond to your e-mail inquiries during that time.
