Sign of the Whale Antiques has been in business in the heart of the village of Glen Ellyn, Illinois
since 1978. (Glen Ellyn is approximately 25 miles west of Chicago, and easily accessible by interstate highways.) It is a group shop comprised of the following four businesses: Caroline Jacobsen Antiques, Virginia Larsen Antiques, Liberty Tree Antiques,
and Kandy Craig Antiques. The owners are Caroline Jacobsen, Virginia and John Larsen, Barb Lemme,

While each of us operates our own individual antiques business, collectively Sign of the Whale specializes in 19th century American country furniture in pine, cherry, walnut, and painted surfaces, as well as quilts, hooked rugs, lighting, folk art, decoys, early glass, oil paintings, and yellow ware. We strive to offer items of quality to the beginning as well as advanced collector, to dealers, and to those seeking to furnish their homes with antique pieces of merit.
