About Sylvia Antiques:

Sylvia Antiques has been buying and selling antiques on Nantucket since 1927.

Sylvia Antiques was established on the island in 1927 by Frank Sylvia. Frank’s sons, Sam & Frank later continued in the business, and today John Sylvia is at the helm, buying and selling rare and unique antiques in the tradition of his father, uncle and grandfather.

We specialize in marine antiques, folk art, fine art, Nantucket baskets, Nantucket related items, furniture, vintage items, and other rare items.

We have two locations on Nantucket; Our anchor store is located in the heart of town in the historic Pacific Club Building at 15 Main Street, and our spacious shop and gallery is just a stone’s throw from Main Street at 6 Ray’s Court.
