Welcome to the Vallejo Gallery

elcome to the Vallejo Gallery's on-line window into the world of Marine Art and Maritime Artifacts.Since 1972, I have been searching the world over for the best examples of marine art. We have established this portal to connect with those who have yet to discover our gallery, and to offer a convenient avenue for our friends to view selections from the gallery when they are unable to visit in person. Just naming a few of the artists is enough to establish the type and quality of the art we feature: William Bradford, Robert Salmon, Eugene Boudin, Antonio Jacobsen & James E. Buttersworth make a nice beginning to this list, now numbering more than three hundred in our inventory. We employ the services of the finest painting conservationists and frame gilders available to compliment these historic works.

Beyond the art, the gallery houses a wide array of the best quality nautical artifacts and maritime instruments to be found, considered one of the best ongoing collections available. Our selection of ship models numbers more than 150 at any moment, from fine Dockyard Steam Yachts, Half-Block Builders models, Sailor-built Antiques, to the finest contemporary examples. We specialize in Napoleonic Prisoner-of-War Bone Ship Models and our artifact collection from this era is of exceptional merit. Having such a comprehensive inventory allows us to offer our clients a complete choice when looking to acquire such things, and often have one-of-a-kind artifacts, such as the Solid Silver Speaking Trumpet once the personal possession of J. Gordon Bennett, Jr., or the nice selection of ship figureheads, such as the diminutive yet finely carved American Lady in White. We are one of the very few purveyors of the art of the whale men and scrimshandlers, and we have several sailor-made woolwork pictures in the gallery today as well. We carry examples of nearly all types of navigation instruments, from a 17TH Century backstaff to 20TH Century clock work beauties by Chelsea of Boston. The collection is completed with an array of Campaign furniture, sea boxes, bronze and iron cannon, swords, deep-sea diving equipment, maps, charts and just about anything and everything else that relates to our maritime heritage.

Whatever your interest, if it relates to humanity's effort to travel the boundless seas, and of the artistic endeavors to capture its primal majesty, we wish to discuss your wants and finds the right artifact or painting for you. Contact us at your convenience to discuss this, and continue to check back here as our website will be updated frequently with some of our most recent discoveries, and some special offers on items we wish you to have.
