M. Finkel & Daughter:
Dealer of antique samplers, needlework and silk embroidery website provides
a wealth of information and research on antique American schoolgirl samplers,
needlework and silk embroideries. Morris Finkel
first opened an antiques store on Pine Street in Philadelphia in November
of 1947, continuing a family tradition in the antiques trade. Pine Street
had been the historic antiques district in Philadelphia for over one hundred
years and was obviously the perfect location for a business selling period
antiques. Located at the corner of 10th and Pine Streets, the business began
and remains in a circa 1810 building with two floors of antique furniture
from the 18th and 19th centuries, a large collection of period accessories
and most importantly, an internationally acclaimed selection of antique
samplers, needlework and silk embroideries from the 17th through the mid
19th centuries, which is now the cornerstone of the business. In 1975,
daughter, Amy Finkel, joined him, making this business a true family venture.
