OUR BUSINESS: We keep a very carefully selected stock of antique art, furniture and metal ware for sale. Every thing we sell has been individually chosen for quality, originality, condition and character. Restoration work when required is always of the highest standard and sympathetic to the pieces concerned and their history. CUSTOMER SERVICE: We pride ourselves both with our choice of stock and the personal attention we offer to all of our customers. Making expensive purchases via internet websites is not an easy choice for customers to make, especially when the items involved are 'unseen and one off' unique pieces such as ours. We recognise these issues and understand that confidence in our integrity as honest and fair people to deal with is of paramount importance both for customers and for ourselves. We are proud of the reputation we have developed over the years. PURCHASES AND DELIVERY: We endeavour to keep overheads low and offer quality items in showroom condition at very sensible prices. Goods can be purchased direct by bank transfer or by Paypal but please check first that the pieces you are interested in are still available. Purchases over £1000.00 can be paid by instalments if you prefer, and delivery will be arranged on completion. Delivery anywhere on mainland UK is free of charge and we will quote as economically as possible for deliveries further afield. Thank you for taking a look at our collection, please get in touch if you have any questions. Kind regards Mark and Carole Middleton.
