Chris Jussel Antiques
Chris Jussel's primary focus in collecting over the past 46 years has been English antique furniture, and related decorative arts of the 17th to 19th-centuries, and even the 20th-century.
Chris joined the family firm, Vernay & Jussel, Inc. in New York City in 1972. Originally founded by Arthur S. Vernay in 1906, the firm handled many important pieces of English furniture over the years.
They also supplied many major museums in the United States and Europe with fine English furniture.
Pieces that inspire Chris to collect today are those that express a quality of design, and those that exhibit quality of workmanship in the execution of this design.
Chris is particularly keen on patination, original finish whenever possible, vibrant color and good-quality carving.
He believes that beauty, utility, quality, condition and authenticity are the all important criteria one must adhere to in collecting.
Chris tries to stick to those core princilples with everything he buys, and offers in his collection.
He looks for more unique things and hopes you all will enjoy perusing through the current inventory.
Chris Jussel is a member of the British Antique Dealers' Association and the National Antique & Art Dealers Association of America.
