Carswell Rush Berlin, Inc., a New York City-based antiques dealer, seeks to locate and bring to the market the finest examples of American formal furniture and decorative accessories of equal quality, from the Classical period, 1800-1840.

Our collection is rigorously curated. We scour the country for exceptional examples. Our deep knowledge of historical styles and forms, and intense focus on our specialty has yielded exceptional results for our clients.  Mr. Berlin is a noted and widely respected authority in his field. Our history of teaching, lecturing and publishing articles that advance scholarship in our field, is rare among dealers.   The firm has been in business for over 25 years and was a long-time exhibitor at both the International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show (IFADS) (now TEFAF New York), and the Winter Show (formerly the Winter Antiques Show), at the Park Avenue Armory. Carswell Berlin is a member of The National Antique & Art Dealers Association of America, Inc., and the Antiques Dealers’ Association of America (ADA).

Carswell Rush Berlin antiques can be viewed on-line at the CRBI website,, ADA Dealers, and Collector’s Eye. Pieces can be inspected by appointment in New York City at the client’s convenience.
