Post Road Gallery, specializing in American 19th Century Paintings, Sculpture and Decorative Arts, is located at 2128 Boston Post Road, Larchmont, NY 10538 in southern Westchester County.
From Post Road: "Post Road Gallery is an art gallery with long antique shop roots. Run by Robert and David Bahssin, the gallery specializes in American fine and decorative arts of the 19th century but has a broad eclectic mix of rare and unique objects. Post Road Gallery is Westchester County's oldest and finest antique store and art gallery. We have operated our shop on the same block in Larchmont since 1952. During that time we have been a source to museums and fine collectors of American art and objects of the 19th century. This web site only represent a small portion our inventory.
"PRG specializes in 19th Century American Art and Antiques. We are particularly fond of American genre and Hudson River School works, neo-classical marble statuary and late Victorian, Renaissance Revival and Aesthetic Period Decorative Arts. We also have a special interest in fine antique clocks and timepieces."
Post Road Gallery, Three Generations of Antiques
". . . Since 1952, three generations of Bahssins have been in the business of selling fine art and antiques from their shop in Larchmont, NY. Prior to the Larchmont location, Robert’s father, Adolph Bahssin, ran antiques shops selling decorative objects in various locations in the Bronx and Yonkers. In the 1950’s, before the construction of I-95, the main “antiquing route” out of New York City north to New England was Route 1, the Boston Post Road. When Robert returned home from service in Korea he knew that by opening a store in Larchmont he would be one of the first stops for antiquers leaving the city. The move turned out to be the right one, the business prospered in the 1950’s and 60’s. The shop started to handle American paintings and sculpture as well as antiques. In 1974, at the urging of his good friend Rockwell Gardner, Robert was able to purchase the building next to his store. He renovated it, moved his business in, and changed the name to Post Road Gallery. Over the years the gallery has become a source for collectors, museums and dealers." Excerpted from
