Haskell Antiques was formed in 1969 by Michael Haskell in Santa Barbara, California. Michael Haskell is one of the most respected antique dealers in the world. His son, Eric Haskell, is now a partner in the business. Eric learned about antiques from birth. Eric also owns an interior and furniture design business, Haskell Design, Inc. Haskell Antiques clients include museums, top decorators and celebrity collectors. Both avid surfers, the Haskells often bring their boards when treasure hunting.
