Alison Whalen


photo of Big Al's vintage bistroware for sale at Mr. Ryder & Company Antiques I have been in the antiques business since the early 80s and have seen many collecting trends come and go, but the one constant which has always remained is the desirability of unique and interesting items of excellent quality. While I do not specialize in any one particular field, I am very partial to vintage European bistro and hotel ware and am always searching for tabletop advertising match strikers, tip trays, cutlery, china, and silver serving pieces bearing the name of a hotel or restaurant. I love these elegant souvenirs of days long gone.

photo of Alison's early pawn native american jewelry for sale at Mr. Ryder & Company AntiquesI also collect and deal in early Native American jewelry. I've been buying and selling it for 30 years. I love the color, the history, and the energy of these unique handcrafted pieces that are getting harder and harder to find. This photo is just a sampling of the many pieces I offer for sale at Mr. Ryder Antiques.
