English antique furniture is more than a sum of its parts, but the parts are often varied and different so that the whole seems disconcertingly complex. There is a logic, of sorts, to English furniture, but there are also delightful eccentricities. I revel in them and will, for example, buy a great country piece as readily as a great high style piece, despite the obvious differences in decorative appeal. It is great furniture that appeals to me—it has to be special. I have been in this business in one form or another for thirty-nine years and there has never been a moment when I have wanted to do something else. Please browse, ask questions and, best of all, come and visit. I guarantee that you will find great beauty herein.
Enrique J. Goytizolo came from Lima, Peru in 1967 to study at the New York School of Interior Design. After graduation in 1970, he co-founded Goytizolo and Kastner Antiques, at 1157 Second Avenue N.Y.C. Inspired by his preference for British design and history, Mr. Goytizolo then established Georgian Manor Antiques at 305 East 61st Street N.Y.C.
In 1996, the firm moved to it’s current location at 29 Center Street in the historic village of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Since the beginning, the firm has specialized in period English furniture and related accessories of decorative beauty and refined scale suitable for apartments and smaller houses.
A hallmark of the firm is its utmost regard for aesthetic, quality, and authenticity. Georgian Manor Antiques is open only by appointment and participates in prestigious charity antique shows throughout the country.
