A. A. Vantine & Company was a well-known retailer of Japanese handcrafts and decorative arts, located in Manhattan, from around 1895 to 1920. Making a wide range of Japanese designs and media available to the American market in the early 20th century, the company was an influential source in meeting and shaping the demand for the growing taste for Japanese art and design in the United States during this period.
