          About Barbara Israel Garden Antiques

A nineteenth-century farmhouse in Katonah, NY, is home to Barbara
Israel Garden Antiques' impressive array of period ornament from
Europe, America, and Asia. The formal gardens surrounding the house
are the perfect setting for our collection of fountains, statues,
sundials, urns and gate pier finials, furniture, fencing, and
wellheads dating from the fifteenth through the early twentieth
centuries. Barbara Israel Garden Antiques works closely with landscape
architects, designers, and private clients to find the ideal object
for each individual garden. While the primary focus is on classical
ornament, we endeavor to satisfy all of our clients' request--from the
most traditional to the more unexpected. With this intent, our
inventory also features other significant ornamental trends including
rustic furniture, Art Moderne/Art Deco pieces, nineteenth-century
revival style objects and eclectic items from the monumental focal
piece to the perfect small flourish.

About Barbara

Barbara Frelinghuysen Israel founded Barbara Israel Garden Antiques in
1985, after a serendipitous purchase of a large collection of estate
statuary led her down the garden antiques path. More than 30 years and
hundreds of exquisite objects later, Barbara is recognized as an
authority on the subject. Barbara's book, Antique Garden Ornament: Two
Centuries of American Taste (Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1999), is the
definitive work in the field. Barbara has served as a consultant to
the Metropolitan Museum of Art for its collection of
nineteenth-century cast iron, and sold pieces to the Winterthur
Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Baltimore Museum of Art,
as well as to many important private collectors. As a past board
member of Historic Hudson Valley, she has helped to preserve landmark
properties and their antique garden ornaments. Barbara Israel Garden
Antiques has been featured in The New York Times, House & Garden, The
Robb Report, The Baltimore Sun, and Martha Stewart Living, among
others, and has appeared on Good Morning America, Sunday Morning
Today, A&E's, The Incurable Collector, and Antiques Roadshow FYI.
