City Mouse Antiques is located in Cincinnati,Ohio and specializes in 18th and 19th Century American, English and French antiques.
Inez and Nan met in 1995 while part of the all volunteer Wellness Community core team that helped create “Legacies”, a shop which sells high end furniture, artwork, antiques and household items. The proceeds from this shop are donated to the “Cancer Support Community”, (formerly Wellness). They were asked to join this team because of their individual backgrounds in the antique business, lending their expertise in identifying and pricing antique items for sale. When they learned they both had small antique businesses, with Inez leaning toward country style and Nan favoring a more formal city look, the two combined interests and formed “City Mouse-Country Mouse Antiques”.
Inez and Nan personally select every item in their inventory and guarantee the condition and authenticity of all that they sell. City Mouse offers a wide variety of antiques, attracting both the experienced and emerging collectors. If a customer needs guidance on where to place an antique in their home, Inez and Nan are happy to offer their advice free of charge. With more than 30 years experience, City Mouse has earned a reputation for honesty, integrity and good value.
