'Ave you 'eard o' the Widow at Windsor?
The Widow at Windsor is not just a wonderful poem from Rudyard Kipling, who was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries- it is also the name of one of the finest collection of antiques and collectibles in central Illinois.
When you step over the threshold of Widow at Windsor Antiques, you leave Springfield for an unknown destination, home to serendipitous antique and vintage treasures. Objects, tastefully displayed, speak of the past, of art and poetry, of vanished worlds and of childhood memories and mysteries.
The Widow travels the globe in search of unique, unusual and distinctive treasures. From the famous French antique markets in Paris…to seldom found antique warehouses in Belgium... to private estates in hidden corners of Europe... and even remote provinces of China... the Widow’s relentless pursuit of antiques knows no boundaries.
Thousands of marvels abound. Elegant furniture, art work, vintage jewelry, stained & leaded glass, sterling, chandeliers, urns, iron gates, antique time pieces, old books, and one-of-a-kind surprises await your visit.
The Widow’s unique and eclectic inventory of antiques, architecturals, and accents is showcased in the heart of downtown Springfield at the northwest corner of 7th and Monroe streets.
As the Widow is fond of saying, "Every Home Deserves a Statement Piece from Widow at Windsor Antiques."
