Many people explored new hobbies during the pandemic which enhanced their appreciation of fine craftsmanship. So, if you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind heirloom for your home, visit Anthony’s Fine Art & Antiques.
Founded nearly 40 years ago by Anthony Christensen, this antique store—housed in a historic church—deals in stories. You are truly in expert hands. The team was trained in London by Sotheby’s Auction House and founders of the Antiques Roadshow, so they have a keen eye for value and can help identify collectibles, art and antiques.
“We buy European, American and Asian museum-quality fine art, furniture and decorative works by traditional and royal craftspeople from the past 400 years,” says owner Micah Christensen. “We work with people locally and nationally to donate works to museums, universities and important collections around the world.”
Dr. Micah Christensen co-authored the Dictionary of Utah Fine Artists, detailing the work and biographies of 4,500 local painters and sculptors.
“We have perhaps the largest collection of works by historic and important contemporary artists in the state right now,” he says.
“Between the 25,000 square-foot gallery and a 20,000-square-foot warehouse, supply chain issues do not exist for us,” says Christensen. “All of our pieces are here, ready to be installed.”
401 E. 200 South, Salt Lake City
“Fine antiques are more affordable than you imagine. We often sell functional, beautiful, 200-year-old furniture made from French walnut by an artisan for less than something made of particle board and sold under a brand name costs.”Micah Christensen, Owner

We’re discovering more architectural building elements, particularly stained glass from churches on the east coast. Traditional art pieces can be substituted for an accent window. Bonus points if it’s a historical window designed by Tiffany or another known maker.
We rotate our inventory daily. Often, our pieces sell before they even leave the ship from France. Right now, we’re inspired by the French countryside makers working in and near Lyon. And, we are spending more and more time in Barcelona and Valencia, leaders of the art nouveau movement.
