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, Morris’ daughter, Amy Finkel, joined him, making this business a true family venture. Shortly thereafter, the name of the business was changed to "M. Finkel & Daughter", reflecting the identity of the two business partners. The father/daughter team combines an interest in antique furniture with the world of historic samplers and needlework. Amy has lectured, written and consulted widely and is well respected for her scholarly approach within this academic field. The Finkels have worked with private clients, with major museums and with historical societies to form some of the most important collections in America.
