About Us

Gem Antiques is a gallery specializing in American and European art pottery and porcelain of the 18th - 20th centuries, and antique and contemporary glass paperweights.

The gallery was established by Mr. Jack Feingold in 1967. Prior to pursuing a career in the antiques trade, Mr. Feingold was an avid collector of paperweights and ceramics. Over the past forty-five years, Mr. Feingold has been at the forefront of the American art pottery field. In 1976, Mr. Feingold co-published a new edition of Edwin AtLee Barber's
The Pottery and Porcelain of the United States & Marks of American Potters, which was originally published in 1903. This edition was one of the first scholarly contributions to the field of American art pottery since the early 20th century. In 1987, Mr. Feingold co-published another significant work - Art Pottery of the United States, by Paul Evans.

Mr. Feingold is a member of the Appraiser's Association of America, The Paperweight Collector's Association, The American Art Pottery Association, and the Friends of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
