          Acanthus Antiques was established in 1989 in the Washington, D.C. area. We have been under continuous ownership and our roots go back to the 1930s in New York when there was a family decorating business. Among the notable clients, was Orson Welles.

Acanthus Antiques specializes in Fine and Decoratives, antique furniture, and antique, estate, and contemporary jewelry. We relocated to the Charleston, SC. area and are now showing at Antiques at South Windermere and Seventeen South Antiques in West Ashley, Charleston, S.C. Additionally, we maintain a large private by appointment showroom. Our collection of jewelry includes a wide array of cufflinks and stick pins for the gentlemen, as well as every other conceivable form of jewelry for the ladies.

Our inventory changes daily, as we are always purchasing. Feel free to contact us about specific items for which you are searching. Also, feel free to contact us with individual pieces or collections with which you wish to part.

Lawrence Perlmutter has been in the antiques business his entire life, opening his first shop in Bethesda, Maryland at the age of 11. Antiques are in his blood and his family. The magnitude of his knowledge on furniture, Asian Antiques, and Fine Art, exhibits great depth and confidence.

Karen Perlmutter, his wife, joined the business 30 years ago, and has developed a vast knowledge in fine jewelry and small decorative objects and collectibles. As the site will reveal, Karen has a keen and broad eye for unique examples of beautifully crafted jewels in both gold and silver. She appreciates quality and craftsmanship.
