Drawing on the fourteen points of connoisseurship enumerated by Charles F. Montgomery in 1961, every antique sold by David A. Schorsch and Eileen M. Smiles meets a rigid set of criteria that takes into account the principal aspects of  overall appearance, form, ornament, materials, finish, color, craft techniques, trade practices, function, style, attribution, history of ownership, condition, and evaluation.  

It is this last point of "Evaluation," that frankly sets us apart from every other dealer in American antiques.  Our standards of evaluation are unique, based on our particular taste and  a very well-honed eye.  In this context we place great emphasis on the beauty, artistic merit, quality of workmanship, condition, rarity, and provenance of every antique that we choose to buy and sell, all measured through the lens of the most current scholarship.

Each antique sold by David A. Schorsch and Eileen M. Smiles is accompanied by a comprehensive invoice identifying the name of the artist, maker, or school, if known, the place of origin, approximate date of manufacture, and materials used, such as primary and secondary woods, along with a description of physical condition, noting any repairs or restorations and  provenance, codified by our guarantee of authenticity.

We count among our valued clients some of the most notable private and corporate collectors in the United States and a number of major museums.

As consultants we offer our expertise in the buying and selling of fine American antiques, through all phases of the marketplace, from private transactions to  auction representation.
