Founded in 1978 by Micheal Daniels, Daniels Antiques has established itself as a premier destination for those seeking carefully curated antiques. With a commitment to preserving and showcasing the craftsmanship and quality of eras long past, Daniels Antiques has become a treasure trove of historical elegance.

Daniels Antiques boasts two distinct locations, each with its own unique collections. The Aspen, Colorado location is located at 431 E. Hyman Ave in downtown Aspen and was established in 1998.

The collections range from the rarest vintage Louis Vuitton trunks, 1920’s prohibition era cocktail shakers, Black Forest carvings, World War 2 binoculars and original Sir Winston Churchill letters, signatures and photographs.

For over four decades Daniels Antiques has built, refined and expanded on its collection. Michael Daniels and his two sons are committed to providing their clients with the best experience possible.
