Over the last 48 years, Connie and I have built one of the country's most respected antiques businesses specializing in Shaker furniture and accessories.
Our love of Shaker craftsmanship and attention to detail have helped realize many of the record prices paid for Shaker artifacts in recent years. We serve as consultants and appraisers to several Shaker museums and have helped to establish most of the major private collections of Shaker furniture. One of our most rewarding activities has been inspiring and assisting a host of Shaker collectors.
Shaker collectors and museums prefer our quiet, discreet transfer of ownership of fine Shaker antiques. We conduct our business personally from our gallery rather than the more public forums.
On this web site, updated regularly, we offer a sampling of our latest Shaker acquisitions. As always, our emphasis will be on quality and the needs of collectors.
Our goal is to ensure that all purchases from Douglas Hamel Antiques will be for objects that you will treasure.
When in New England, plan a visit to our shop and enjoy the lovely view. Just click on the picture for directions. We are full-time, active Shaker dealers, so please contact us before coming so that we can be sure to be available.
