Earle D. Vandekar of Knightsbridge is owned and run by Paul Vandekar. Historically known for our outstanding antique ceramics, I have also added new lines to the inventory that the company sells. Thus in addition to Chinese Export, English and European antique porcelain and pottery, I have created one of the most extensive collections of 19th-century British sailors’ woolworks (known as woolies) in the world, and feature other specialized antique textiles such as Georgian silkworks. I have also expanded the company, which still bears my father’s name, to offer an exquisite selection of 19th century Chinese watercolours and hand-coloured engravings of various subjects from the 18th and 19th centuries from across the world, as well as portrait miniatures and other period decorative arts. My mission is to offer our clients pieces which reflect my passion and the keen eye I have developed for the world of antiques. My commitment to excellence has made it my privilege to delight collectors and designers as well as museum curators for the last thirty five years. Earle D. Vandekar of Knightsbridge has a very active antique show schedule across the United States, so be sure to check the exhibition schedule to see when my collection will be nearby.
