Over the years through hard work, research, excellent contacts (and a bit of luck!), we have managed to source and onwardly place some fantastic pieces;
some, previously missing & untraced for the last 100 years!
PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT ALL OF OUR STOCK IS SHOWN ON THE WEBSITE.
We also have a large 1800 sq ft warehouse in Brentford, Middlesex TW8
(Strictly By Appointment only)
BUT, WE DO HAVE OUR SMALL EXQUISITE GALLERY
AT 144A KENSINGTON CHURCH STREET, LONDON W8
Open Wednesdays to Saturdays; no appointment needed!
Plus, it's always so much nicer dealing face to face
and seeing/handling the pieces yourselves, in real time.
Our clients include private, trade & corporate buyers, architects, interior designers & museums.
We offer a very personalised and discrete service.
We can also help source items for you, conduct research on a piece, represent you at auction.
Last, but not least, we can also offer a bespoke design service and professional Feng Shui consultancy;
from item placement in harmony with you and your home & business, to other more general and specific requirements.
Please note the following:
Regrettably, we do not offer online valuations nor give out prices of sold items.
We only deal in antiques of the period; all our pieces are genuine and we neither stock replicas nor reproductions.
Payments can be made by credit or debit cards (currently in person only), cheque, cash or ideally, bank/wire transfer.
We can arrange delivery both within the UK and indeed worldwide (where legally permissible!)
