Larry and Jeannie Jackson have owned their art and antique business in Fredericksburg, Texas, for over 20 years. They come with a great deal of experience in these fields. Larry purchased his first antique at the age of 26, beginning a lifelong passion for history, antiques, and art. For years, Larry spent his spare time away from the family development business, collecting fine art and antiques throughout the country. He soaked up an immense amount of knowledge and experience that led him to turn his hobby into a business. With 42 years of experience, Larry is well respected in the world of art and antiques and is considered the leading expert in the United States on John Henry Belter antique furniture. Over the years, Larry has built an extensive network of associates throughout the country. He comes highly recommended as a buyer, seller, consultant, and appraiser. In addition to the gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas, he works with individual clients, museums, auction houses, collectors, decorators, attorneys, trusts, and estate owners.
Jeannie Jackson brings a degree in art and art history to the business. She has an impeccably diverse and artistic eye for quality, form, color, and technique which is apparent as one strolls through the gallery she appoints. Along with merchandising, Jeannie handles the marketing and public relations for the business. Before joining Larry in the business, she raised two daughters, published a health and fitness magazine, owned gift and jewelry shops, a florist, and did consulting on numerous interior design projects. She also did her graduate work in psychology. When Jeannie and Larry decided to pool their talents, they created Larry Jackson Fine Art and Antiques.
The business is housed in an old warehouse located at 209 South Llano, right off Main Street, in the middle of Fredericksburg, Texas. It has beautiful wood beams, lots of space, and plenty of parking. “We love the look and feel of the structure. It shows off the fine art and wonderful antiques perfectly”.
The Jacksons’ are proud of the many large projects they have completed over the years. They have assembled several museum quality collections of furniture, art, lighting, and accessories.
If you are a casual lover of art and/or antiques, or a seasoned collector, Larry and Jeannie can bring their passion, knowledge , and experience together to help you acquire something you will be proud of.
The Jackson’s two Mid-West collectors both acquired large collections of Belter furniture, Rococo Revival furniture, art glass, china, silver, lighting, and architectural pieces. Larry spent years locating the best examples of period pieces for these collectors.
Another worthy project is an 1856 antebellum mansion called Rosedale in Columbus, Mississippi. It is filled with period antique furnishings, lighting, and objects d’art. As a consultant and buyer for Rosedale, Larry found and purchased the nation’s largest collection of period furnishings by celebrated American craftsman John Henry Belter. The home is one of the finest examples of Italianate architecture in Mississippi. It is privately owned but is available for tours at various times of the year.
Cypress Pond Plantation in Georgia is a favorite of the Jackson’s, who were chosen to serve as consultants and buyers for the restoration project on the 1851 plantation house. “We had so much fun traveling with the owners and locating period marble mantels, huge chandeliers, exquisite period furnishings, art, decorative accessories, and even period china, crystal, and silver”. They loved being involved in the project from start to finish, finally getting to place everything in the home as it would have been in its time.
