One of the projects Larry and Jeannie had the privilege to undertake was serving as consultants and buyers for the restoration project on an 1851 Georgia Plantation. “We had so much fun traveling with the owners and locating period marble mantels, huge and beautiful chandeliers, as well as all of the exquisite period furnishings, art, decorative art and even period china, crystal and silver.”
The Jacksons considered it a most fulfilling endeavor to be involved with the project from the beginning, seeing it through to completion. They started with the architectural plans and helped to do everything from locating master restorers, to consulting on period paint, to finally placing everything in the home as it would have been in its time. The best part was making new lifelong friends with the owners
The Jacksons worked on two 10,000+ sq. ft. homes in the Midwest as antique and art consultants and buyers. One of the homes was the Rosedale Mansion in Columbus, Mississippi. Some of the findings for these homes included Tiffany, Galle, Belter, Herter Brothers, French and English furniture, 19th century English and American lighting, clocks, china, European porcelains, wonderful European and American cast iron, and amazing fine art. These private collections are thrilling to see for even the most advanced collector or dealer. One of the homes is considered to be one of the finest examples of Italianate architecture in Mississippi, as well as housing the largest Belter collection in the United States.
Rosedale Mansion – Columbus, Mississippi
Another jewel Larry Jackson served as a consultant and buyer for is the beautifully restored Antebellum home known as Rosedale, built in Columbus, Mississippi, in 1856.
As a consultant and buyer for Rosedale, Larry found and sold the nation’s largest collection of period furnishings by celebrated American craftsman John Henry Belter. Larry is an expert on J. H. Belter, who was the leading Rococo cabinetmaker of his time. In addition to the furniture, Larry also found much of the period lighting and décor for Rosedale as well.
