We Have the Best Kept


Find Your Treasure

Dr. John E. Crews Antiques is a complete source of display-ready late eighteenth and early nineteenth antique English boxes at reasonable prices. We offer a wide selection of distinctive, high-quality boxes for beginning and serious collectors, including interior decorators who want to find unique boxes to complete a home’s décor.

In addition to antique English boxes, we have a wide variety of miniature chests, table chests, period inkwells and writing instruments as well as clever Georgian and Victorian items, including go-to-beds, guinea scales, and snuff boxes.

We exhibit every month at Scott’s Antique Market (North Building) in Atlanta, Georgia. We bring about 130 boxes to each show. Visit this page for directions and dates.


An heirloom box to fill with dreams and wishes for a lifetime.
