George Subkoff Antiques To Close

George Subkoff Antiques — for over 25 years Westport’s leading destination for 18th and 19th century American, English and Continental furniture — will close on February 25. Most items are now 30 to 50% off.

The owner — a former president of the Art and Antique Dealers League, and whose pieces can be found in the U.S. State Department reception room and Gracie Mansion – will sell by appointment only. He will work out of his Norwalk warehouse.

Subkoff began his career in New York City. In the mid-1980s he opened a store on Route 7 in Wilton. Several years later he moved to Colonial Green, a better location for customers from New York and throughout Fairfield Country.

Three years ago — as buyers began purchasing online — Subkoff relocated to 5 Post Road West, just across the bridge.

In addition to American and European items, he sells stock from China and Southeast Asia.

Wherever it comes from, Subkoff appreciates well-made pieces. In earlier times, he says, “it took 3 months to create something, from 300-year-old trees. Today it’s 30 hours, and a 30-year-old tree.”
