The son and brother of one of the world's leading art dealers, Duveen was one of the pre-eminent interior designers/antique dealers of the Gilded Age. Founding "Charles of London," he would source and supply rare antiques (his specialty was the Tudor and Elizabethan period) for wealthy American clients from the country houses and castles of England's declining aristocracy. He was a well-known society figure on both sides of the Atlantic.
