Cherry Gallery is a leading dealer in quality antique rustic furniture and accessories.

We also venture beyond strict rustic boundaries by offering antique art - fine, folk and Native American - and other genres of antique and vintage furnishings.

Our everyday pursuit is to acquire and offer antiques that have good intrinsic value and aesthetic appeal, allowing our customers to infuse their lives and homes with the comforts, refinements, and artistic expressions of earlier eras.

See our latest offerings in Current Selections. (Read how our monthly offerings work go)

Get to Know Us

In addition to selling antiques via the listings presented here, we also sell at our gallery and at antiques shows.

But our most common transactions are with established clients. Once we become familiar with customers' tastes, collecting passions, or furnishing and decorating needs, we let them know when we acquire something they might like. We have developed many friendships with antiques enthusiasts and designers this way over the years, which has been one of the most rewarding aspects of being in this business.

So please don't hesitate to call us, introduce yourself, and give us an idea of the antiques you'd like to acquire. We look forward to getting to know you, and helping you find something that you'll love.

"Sticks and Twigs" furniture may look primitive and easy to make, but don't be fooled. Read how the tastes of elite, urban "rusticators" stimulated a new furniture genre for their summer camps.
