ROBERTO FREITAS has been dealing independently in fine American antiques, since February 2002. With nearly 30 years' experience in the antiques business, he has learned the trade hands-on, working for other prominent dealers. He started his business working out of his home in Stonington, Connecticut. As his business was developing, he soon opened his gallery in Stonington Borough, only two years later to move up the street to a larger location, to accommodate his growing business. He exhibits at antiques shows country wide, and has sold to major collections and museums.
His inventory consists of period American furniture of the 18th and 19th century, complemented by folk art and decorative arts. He takes care to listen to his clientele (new and existing), and is constantly working to find pieces that will make a great addition to their collection.
