Welcome to 21 East Gallery located in Villa Park’s Ardmore Historic District adjacent to the Illinois Prairie Path and just 20 miles due west of downtown Chicago. We offer an eclectic selection of vintage and antique items including fine art, decorative art, architectural artifacts, fine, vernacular and historical photography, American historical artifacts and paper, folk and outsider art, and much more. We also specialize in African American/Black art and African American photographs with most originating from Chicago. Mid-century Modern, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts, Victorian, and Contemporary styles are represented. We sell items to collectors, historians, dealers and institutions around the world such as The Getty, Taschen Photography, Metropolitan Museum of Art, CBS Studios, Harvard University, and the Henry Ford Museum. We also sell, rent, and track down props for movies and television. One of our past holdings now sits in the Library of Congress and we have made nine appearances on History Channel’s Pawn Stars. Items have been obtained throughout the United States with a focus in the upper Midwest, New England and California. Our northeast storage location is located in north central Massachusetts.
We offer scheduled virtual live showings for certain categories such as fine art via streaming applications and Facebook Messenger. We offer virtual consignments of fine, rare and/or highly desirable items which includes an in-person assessment, preliminary research, advice, and photographing of items.
Any items appearing on the Featured page or on the Gallery sites are available for purchase at the gallery websites or by contacting us. You can also purchase these items at our gallery or on eBay or AbeBooks where most of our offerings also reside. We will do all we can to ensure you are completely satisfied with your experience. We are constantly acquiring and adding new items to the gallery and the Featured items represent a small sample of our ever-changing inventory.
