Joy Ruskin Hanes and Lee Hanes are full time professional third generation antiques dealers. Our family has been in business continually since 1946 with Shops in Boston and Foxboro, Massachusetts. Presently we are located in Old Lyme, Connecticut on the shoreline, midway between New Haven and New London. We live in an antique house and are open year round by appointment.
Although our home is New England, our marketplace is America, and we exhibit in over 20 major shows annually. Customers include not only new and advanced collectors but others in the trade, interior designers, and museums nationwide. Our background includes extensive work as a docent at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, Connecticut and the Hyland House in Guilford, Connecticut. Additionally, we are regular free-lance writers for various antiques publications.
What We Sell
We specialize in 18th and early 19th-Century American high-style country furniture and appropriate period accessories. These include paintings, silhouettes, English ceramics, fireplace equipment, needlework, samplers and a variety of early metalware. Many items come directly from New England homes. Others are personally selected in England and on the Continent. Our constantly changing inventory reflects our commitment to buy with discretion the finest pieces in original condition which we can offer at competitive prices.
Our Appraisal Service
We are USPAP certified professional appraisers and can schedule a visit to yur home if you need an appraisal for insurance or legal purpose. Appraisals should be updated every 5 to 7 years.
