Michael Donovan and James Butterworth, owners of Antique American Wicker, have been interested in antiques for most of their lives, beginning with furnishing their families porches with wicker when they were young. After meeting in college, their common interest developed into a business restoring and selling antique wicker at area antiques fairs. After earning Masters degrees in Education with a specialty in Creative Arts, they changed life paths and decided to become full-time antiques dealers, emphasizing their love of wicker. They are now leading authorities on antique American wicker and exhibit at many of the country's top antiques fairs.

Antique American Wicker is located in an 18th-century Nashua, New Hampshire, home known as the Willard Marshall estate. Their collection is displayed in a three-story 19th-century post-and-beam barn on the property. We are open by appointment.
