Francis J. Purcell Inc. is a family business of two generations that for the
last 40 years has been dealing in fine antiques and period fireplace
Recently we purchased a 4-story historic building in Olde City Philadelphia
and filled it with our collections. Over the years, we've had the pleasure
of supplying fine antiques to the White House in Washington, DC and various
Governor's mansions in the Northeast. We have many happy,
private clients and we would like to add you to our family.
Our collection of 150 fireplace mantels is the largest in the country, and we
specialize in American 18th and early 19th century wood examples. We also
have a collection of marble mantels.
An appointment at our shop is highly recommended, although we do maintain
shop hours as often as possible on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10:30
AM to 6:00 PM. Please do give us a call if you plan to visit, and we'd be
pleased to provide additional information about any specific items that you
may be seeking.
Historic Olde City Philadelphia is on the Eastern side of Center City
Philadelphia, conveniently located near I-95, Expressway Routes 76/676, and
all the major Philadelphia attractions. We very much recommend a visit to
our city - if you haven't been here for a while you'll be impressed by the
shopping, dining and cultural resources available.
