An antiques shop with a royal touch
by Carleton Varney

The next time you are lunching at Belle & Maxwell’s on Antiques Row, enjoying a touch of yesterday along with super salads, here’s a tip when you depart: Stop by 3608 S. Dixie Highway to visit what I would describe as a classic and happy antique shop, Patricia’s Gallery.

Countess Patricia Pingree-Clouet is the French-born proprietor and she has the same style and charm as one of her past employers. For five years, she worked in Paris for the fashion house of Coco Chanel under the late Karl Lagerfeld. She also enjoyed a stint with Nina Ricci…

What’s your go-to antique store route in West Palm Beach?

Patricia’s Gallery
« Marking her second winter season, owner Patricia Pingree-Clouet is « known for my smalls » she says, « the kind of objects you put in a library » —many of which she scoops up locally, tapping into the area’s extensive estate sale and consignments markets. « One reason South Dixie is so rich in treasures is its location near Palm Beach, Miami, Boca Raton, and Vero Beach and all their beautifully decorated houses… » Kemble says. Look for pairs of lamps, Murano glass, chandeliers, and other antiques from France, England, and Spain. The shop also carries bamboo chairs and side tables, blue-and-white china, and other pieces with an island vibe.
