THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. If you are interested in attending, please call (216) 721-5722 ext. 1502 for further details.

Born in Lambertville, NJ; growing up in New Hope, PA, Lew Larason has been working with wood and antique furniture for over five decades.  In the 1950’s, he apprenticed with the late George Nakashima and other local woodworkers and in 1956 he became a self-employed woodworker, slowly developing a talent for restoring antique furniture as well buying and selling antiques. In 1966, he fully invested his talents and energies into the antiques world and restoring antique furniture. Since 1975, Lew has been a co-owner of Guthrie and Larason, an antiques dealer specializing in general country fare of the 18th and 19th centuries. In 1977, Larason wrote his first article about antique baskets and with his wife as his editor, he has been writing since including several self-published books, The Basket Collectors Book and Buying Antique Furniture: An Advisory.

Currently, Larason writes a monthly column and feature entitled “Fakes I Have Known” for the New York/Pennsylvania Collector as well as the Workshop Department for the Bucks County Magazine. Larason also routinely shares his knowledge on the subjects of “Buying Antique Furniture”, “Caring for Antique Furniture” and “Avoiding Fake Antiques” and is retained by antiques dealers, collectors, and appraisers to authenticate period antique furniture.
