About Carlton Hobbs

Carlton Hobbs is a globally respected collector, conservator, researcher, and dealer in museum-quality furniture and art objects. As the Director of Carlton Hobbs Antiques located in the former Virginia Graham Fair Vanderbilt mansion on New York’s Upper East Side, Mr. Hobbs curates important exhibitions on this business premises and hosts a variety of industry events.

Recently, Carlton Hobbs Antiques presented Inspired by Antiquity, a show reflecting Mr. Hobbs’ own passion for the provenance and historic value of the objects he collects. Hosted for the benefit of Sir John Soane’s Museum Foundation, this event featured over 40 pieces, many designed by renowned furniture artisan Thomas Hope in the Regency style. An item of particular interest at this show was the Buckingham Palace Center Table most likely crafted by George Morant and Sons around 1840 for use in the palace’s Garden Pavilion. Stefanie Rinza, Mr. Hobbs’ business partner, described this event as a collaboration with leading academics in antiquities, who helped to identify the ancient design sources and symbolic interpretations reflected in the pieces on display now broadly regarded as Neoclassical.

Carlton Hobbs takes particular interest in pieces with royal, aristocratic provenances. One such item he acquired for his collection is an entire 18th century paneled library from the Hotel Gaulin in Dijon, France, that was once owned by J. P. Morgan. Described as “the ultimate bibliophile's Christmas gift” in an article by Luxist.com, this piece, priced at $3.8 million, is an example of the rare nature of some of the 700 pieces on display at Carlton Hobbs Antiques.

In the course of over 35 years in his trade, Mr. Hobbs has accumulated a private research library of over 2,000 volumes that he readily shares with academics, dealers, and collectors. Having begun his trade in London some decades ago, Carlton Hobbs exhibits at the world's most prestigious art fairs, such as Maastricht, as of March 2012, Masterpiece in London, the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show as well as at the Spring and Fall shows at New York’s Armory.
