Foundwell’s Vintage Treasures Will Delight Gentlemen (and Ladies, Too)

Treasure hunting in thrift and antique stores always sounds rewarding, until you’re elbow deep in cast-off kitchenwares and polyester glad rags. Yet, the search for those diamonds in the rough appeals to us largely because true vintage gems elude us. Most simply don’t have the time, patience or knowledge to find something really rarefied.

Alan Bedwell, however, was raised on scouting for silver marks, identifying makers, dating materials and appraising art. His bona fides come by birth: his mother is a longtime antiques dealer in London. Soon after graduating, Bedwell went to work sourcing antiques for Ralph Lauren. More than a decade later, he branched out on his own, establishing his luxury goods company Foundwell in 2009. Foundwell curates fine homewares and accessories from over the last two centuries, specializing in men’s finery and antique silver pieces.

This season, Nordstrom Downtown Seattle is carrying some of his singular discoveries, which can also be found online. We spoke with Bedwell about what attracts his eye and some of his favorite finds—plus what to buy for that tricky guy on your list this holiday.

Heart It Hard: Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him and Her

Even if you know someone intimately, buying him or her a romantic gift can surface a host of anxieties. Will she read too much into it? Is he even going to get you something? What size is she? Does he have any idea what a pocket square is?
