This refined treasure trove, established in 1939, sells an impressive range of antiques and curiosities. Its shelves boast an alluring mixture of pieces, from art deco jewellery, Victorian oil lamps and sterling silver punch bowls to French clocks, glassware and Asian art (including erotic Japanese watercolours). While the shop is a favourite with serious connoisseurs, casual browsers are welcome. Charm bracelet lovers take note: this place has the best collection of vintage gold charms - from tiny jewelled typewriters to cocktail glasses and dice - we've ever seen, but be prepared to pay over $100.
