Antiques

Welcome to Athens Classical Antiques. Owner Ron Evans has had a lifelong love of history, architecture, and antiques. He focuses on collecting and dealing in fine American furniture of the late-Federal, Sheraton, Classical, and mid-Victorian periods. Decorative appointments consist of American, English, and French objects that would have been used in period homes of the antebellum South.
