Elise Abrams began collecting antique porcelain and stemware over 30 years ago and has since become one of the foremost experts in the field. Her passion for creating magnificent table settings coupled with her incomparable collections, culminated in the establishment of Elise Abrams Antiques in Great Barrington, Massachusetts in 1989, the first of its kind dedicated to antiques for dining.
Since the opening of her gallery, Elise has developed a discerning and loyal clientele. Described by Boston Magazine as "a world class collection of museum-quality antiques for the dining room,” her gallery has become the country’s premier source for antique porcelain and stemware.
Open the door to the magnificent showroom and you will immediately see that Elise has a rare gift: an unerring eye for color, design, arrangement and quality. Above all, she loves what she does. From sophisticated country to the elegance of the Gilded Age, Elise will expertly guide the decorator, novice or the most experienced collector to express his or her individuality and creativity. She will also help you design a one of a kind table setting, combining antique elements with a modern sensibility.
Elise’s collection emphasizes the Gilded Age period of 1880-1920, featuring Minton, Coalport, Royal Worcester, Royal Doulton, Spode, Wedgwood, Lenox, Sevres, Royal Crown Derby, Meissen, and more. In addition to antique porcelain, you will find an extraordinary array of stemware, including sets manufactured by Hawkes, Tiffany, Moser, Pairpoint, Baccarat, St. Louis, Webb, Steuben, Moser and Val St. Lambert.
Elise Abrams Antiques also offers an impressive selection of antique accessories, including decanters, silver, serving pieces, centerpieces, candlesticks, and punchbowls of timeless beauty.
