About us

I have been in the antiques business since 1962, starting in the family business in Staffordshire. In the early 1970’s I moved to Hertfordshire where I opened my own business and created a limited company. 20 years ago I moved the business location to my present large shop premises in the pretty, rural village of Wilstone, near Tring  in Hertfordshire.

Our stock

I source my stock through many contacts built up over the years. This continues to consist of carefully chosen high quality 17th 18th and 19th century of furniture, particularly specialising in articles with their own fine original colour and also many interesting smaller items of the same periods.

The business

Today much of my business is carried out via the internet. Any successful antiques business, and particularly mine, remains a way of life and a hobby, it continues to give me enormous enjoyment and satisfaction.

I hope this is reflected by my commitment to a very high quality of service which I have always given over the years. I prefer to deliver sold items  in person where possible to ensure complete customer satisfaction.


22nd April 2021. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any help required on any article that you see on this website, if you prefer, I am very happy to receive phone calls at any time, my number is:  07860 910034.

Over the next few months, I will be moving  to smaller premises where business will be carried on as usual. I have therefore reduced the prices of several of my larger items to help facilitate this.

Looking forward to all enquiries now that lock down has eased. Deliveries of furniture and postage of smaller items will be carried on as usual observing at all times the requirements of social distancing.
