Thomas Schwenke Antiques

In the business for 40 years, Schwenke is a leading expert in Federal furniture. Upon entering his barn (having enjoyed stunning gardens on the walk in), a tableau catches my eye. An inlaid-mahogany Hepplewhite sideboard sets off a pair of Sheffield silver-plated wine coolers with leaf and flower embellishments. Above hangs a rare American double portrait of Samuel P. and Adelaide Victoria Hixon Moody in its original gilded pine frame, c. 1855. Their brown eyes stare hauntingly.–Yankee Magazine, May/June 2011
