Michael Whitman is widely recognized as one of the leading specialists in his field, and is frequently sought out for his opinion on objects by museums and seasoned collectors alike. Whitman Antiques has been in business since 1972, when Michael started dealing in antiques in his native England. In 1975, Michael and his wife Marjorie moved to America, and opened a shop just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Objects that Michael has brought to the market are now in the permanent collections of major museums, as well as many respected private collections. Whitman Antiques exhibits at prestigious antiques shows throughout the USA. Michael is in business with his wife Marjorie and his daughter Margaret. We continue to source quality items from throughout the USA, UK and Europe. Our inventory includes affordable antiques as well as museum-quality rarities. Every item is personally selected, and we are proud to guarantee the condition and authenticity of everything we sell without exception.
