At Home Antiques – recent article that appeared in the Mountain Connection

Imagine eating on a dining room table that was built in the early 1900s; a table that fed numerous families before yours. This is what fascinated Elsa Briggs and led her to collect fine pieces from long ago. As Elsa shared, “It’s always been interesting to me to see an antique item and wonder about the people who shared its history. Thus, At Home Antiques became a business rather than simply a dream.

Elsa and her husband Terry live in Evergreen and through the years, they have accumulated many incredible antiques both European and American, from the early 1900s and, in some cases, the late 1800s.

“My mother was orphaned.” explained Elsa. “and with her own family it became very important to her to find things from her own past and pass them down to her children. This initiated my personal, life-long interest.”

Among the many pieces Elsa and Terry have acquired and are looking to sell, there is a Victorian étagère made of Brazilian rosewood. It has glass doors, carved wood spindles and beveled glass cabinets backed with mirrors that can hold your cherished display pieces. There is also a wishbone dresser from the late 1800s or early 1900s made of walnut; with three drawers, burled wood and hand-carved handles, it is a piece that would fit into any Colorado home.

Other pieces include a cottage-style, Swiss bedroom set made of pine and walnut from the early 1920’s. “The workmanship on this set is simply exquisite!” added Elsa. There is also a 1920s art deco bed; and a 1920s Texas style oak secretary with an attached bookcase. Other items they have include a French, tavern-style dining room table and chairs made of heavy oak from the early 1900s and, from Belgium, a round drum end table with a carved open side door.

Elsa also offers personalized service to research and locate hard-to-find period pieces for any client looking for that something special.
