Bob has experience with vintage toys, bookend and hand-made items from around the world. His husband, Larry, has been collecting antiques since he was five, and has an eye for quality. He's always loved the elegance, workmanship and history of Chinese antiques, but also specializes in arts & crafts, Victorian, and jewelry. Bob is also the founder and Director of the Community Empowerment Network, a non-profit organization that empowers rural communities in developing countries to build sustainable livelihoods. Proceeds from the sale of items from Bear & Raven help enable continuation of this work.
Larry and Bob are also avid gardeners and host a collection of unusual perennials, grasses and succulents in their rural home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, with an inspiring view of Mt Baker.
We strive to offer a selection of high quality antiques and collectibles, and to provide you the sort of customer experience we'd like to experience when we shop online. We are VERY PROUD of the quality of our items and stand behind all of our merchandise. We take great care in describing the items accurately, including any wear or flaws and we guarantee all of our items to be exactly as described. We do our very best to keep the shipping charges as low as possible and do not charge a handling fee.
