    Welcome to the web site of Reese's Antiques, one of Philadelphia's oldest family owned antiques businesses.
Established in 1905 along Pine Street's Antique Row, we are one of the primary sources in Philadelphia for fine quality furniture, porcelain, paintings, silver, jewelry, pottery, clocks, and other decorative accessories.
     Through the decades, Reese's Antiques has enjoyed an excellent reputation for serving the public and furnishing the interiors of historical buildings, institutions, and museums.
     During the Calvin Coolidge Presidency in the 1920's, my grandfather, a cabinet maker as well as antiques dealer, constructed a Chippendale Secretary for the White House. In 1960, my father and mother, antiques dealers and partners in the business, before myself, sold a pair of 18th century andirons to the curator appointed to refurnish Independence Hall. (I still retain the purchase receipt from this transaction).
     Reese's Antiques has also provided set decorations for the theater and movies made in Philadelphia. I am the third generation to own and operate Reese's Antiques. I have been manager of the shop since 1971.
    Thank you for visiting Reese's Antiques online.
