Welcome to Sallea Antiques….Sallea Antiques is the longest established specialist in antique boxes of all types and shapes in the United States. True to our business motto, "Boxes Are Our Business."
As an outgrowth of a highly successful 20-year interior design practice in the New York metropolitan area, Sallea Antiques’s founder, Sally B. Kaltman, imported and installed a diverse range of small, elegant antique accessories for her clientele.
These items included a magnificent collection of 17th, 18th and 19th century boxes of all types, shapes and materials, representative of the finest, craftsmanship of those periods including antique tea caddies, fitted boxes, writing boxes and desks accessories, French boxes, crystal boxes and games and game boxes.
In addition, other elegant antique accessories such as oriental porcelains (Japanese porcelain (Imari) and Chinese Export Porcelain), brass implements, paintings, old books and select furniture, originating mainly from England, France, the Far East and America were acquired and placed for clients.
Not all the categories of antiques we carry are represented here on the web site so please contact us with your inquires. Needless to say, pictures and descriptions of any objects in our large and ever changing inventory also are readily available upon request.
In the early 1970's, Sallea formalized itself as a stand-alone business entity, predicated on all of the aforementioned categories of antiques accessories and has since evolved into the world-reputed enterprise that it is, today.
With a magnificent, spacious gallery, continuously occupied in New Canaan, Connecticut since 1989, Sallea Antiques also has enjoyed decades of repeated participation in some of the most prestigious antiques shows presented annually across the United States, including such locations as Houston TX, Boston MA, New York NY, Washington DC, Chicago IL, Palm Beach FL, Naples FL, Detroit MI, Nantucket MA, etc. See the Show Schedule page for list of some upcoming shows. A complete advanced listing of forthcoming Sallea antiques show venues is available upon written or e-mail request.
As a member of the Art & Antiques Dealers League of America, The Antiques Council and The Confederation International des Negociantes an Oeuvres d'Art (CINOA), Sallea Antiques adheres to the highest commercial and ethical standards and business practices in the antiques industry throughout the world.
