We love the nods to English country style in this grouping from our current collection of English antique furniture and goods.

From the vibrant palette of the needle point hunt scene to the graceful lines and brasses on the 19th century mahogany chest of drawers to the supple leather top and nailhead detail on the blanket chest to the stunning detail of the bronze horses…it’s so very good.

We hand select each piece in and import our entire collection from England.

The Dolly Archer Story

At Dolly Archer, our goal is to offer a fresh approach to shopping for antiques. We provide a beautiful and inviting environment that appeals to all of the senses, a selection of thoughtfully curated furniture and fancy goods and a wealth of knowledge to help you locate the perfect new addition for your home or gift for a friend.

We source a large part of our offerings from England which allows us to bring unique pieces to the US landscape. We specialize in high quality and timeless style with an eye on provenance and value. Each piece of furniture is meticulously examined, cleaned, repaired and refinished in our onsite workshop to ensure an impeccable end product.

In addition to our carefully curated selection of antique and vintage goods, we offer a line of private label hand poured soy candles in a variety of incredible scents, handmade buntings and textiles created exclusively for Dolly Archer by a local artisan and an ever evolving selection of throws and throw pillow celebrating English culture.

Our retail shop is located at 12691 McGregor Blvd #104 and is open 10-4 Wednesday-Saturday for our local southwest Florida customers (and visitors!) Our inventory is also available for our national customers on Chairish and Etsy.
