Email From Christian Berkey
I received the following email of interest concerning the 1920's era Berkey & Gay bedroom furniture pictured below. Which I sold at a January 2003 antique auction located in Metro Atlanta.

Dear Sir,
My name is Christian Berkey and I am Julius Berkey's great great grandson. I just wanted to drop you a note to compliment you on the Berkey & Gay pieces you have - they are exquisite!

Kind Regards,
Christian Berkey

Some time after receiving the above email from Christian Berkey. I searched for his antiques related website and found that the domain had expired. Having sold quite few pieces of Berkey & Gay furniture over the years. I decided to purchase to hightlight the Berkey & Gay furniture which I bought in the Northern United States and hauled to Metro Atlanta to sell at auction. Today I am in the process of adding additional content incuding photos and soon product info from vintage Berkey & Gay Furniture Company magazine ads. Also as time allows I plan to add Berkey & Gay furniture for sale classified ads. Please check back!

Michigan Trip
My Grandfather homesteaded in Michigan during the 1890's and worked as a cook for a logging company while there. I have always wanted to visit the site of his homestead which was located near Hope, Michigan. I had planned to go several years ago and thought I would stop by the location of the Berkey & Gay Furniture factory in Grand Rapids, Michigan. However things didn't work out so that I could make the trip. If possible I hope to make the trip this summer! I think it would be interesting to combine the two and hopefully get some pictures for this website.

The Berkey & Gay chest, dresser & vanity all have spring loaded secret drawers. Do the photos above represent the best quality 1920's era Berkey & Gay bedroom furniture that the Berkey & Gay Furniture Company manufactured? This is by far the best 1920's Berkey & Gay bedroom suite I have seen in almost 40 years of buying and selling antique furniture! If you know of a better 1920's era Berkey and Gay bedroom suite please email me pictures. I will gladly post them on this website giving you full credit with a link to your website if desired!
