The Importance of a Good Name
October 2, 2018, posted by Pam Klepper Sexton
From time to time,we are asked about our unusual logo and exactly where it originated from. In the beginning of establishing Pickwick Antiques, our owners, Sara and Jere Beasley liked the name of a local café in downtown Montgomery, AL, on Commerce Street, The Pickwick Café.
They were also drawn to the name "Pickwick" because of "The Pickwick Papers," Charles Dickens' first published novel The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (Publisher: Chapman & Hall, 1836).
A friend of the Beasleys, Mr. Duncan Black, designed the logo based on the timeless design of the great Thomas Chippendale.
A small beginning has evolved into a name and brand that sets a standard for fine antiques. Our pieces grace various homes and offices throughout the continental United States as well as areas around the globe. The constant emphasis on European pieces, art and decorative items is who we are and what we do best.
As always....Design is in the Details,
