Victoria & Son was launched to showcase the designs that have evolved over the 80+ years of Frederick P. Victoria & Son, Inc. Some of these designs are new takes on ones which we have produced over the years, and others are entirely new. Being a family run business provides us with a common thread and the shared experiences of our predecessors. This heritage is a unique resource and serves as a design reference and inspiration. We then set simple quality expectations – to only accept pieces we would live with at home.
About Frederick P. Victoria & Son, Inc.
Our company was established in New York City in 1933 by Frederick and specialized in unusual and high-quality English and Continental antiques. The firm quickly began to also offer full production capabilities for bespoke cabinetry, metalwork, finishing and upholstery. The company is now run by Frederick’s son, Tony, a respected expert in the field of 18th Century French furniture and decorative arts, and by Tony’s own son, Freddy. We continue to offer unusual antiques, our own fine furniture, custom design services & production, and three generations worth of design experience and expertise.
