Why buy from Us?
There are many benefits from buying from a reputable dealer compared to buying from an auctionhouse or someonewho does not guarantee what they sell:
We offer all of our items on approval. If you are not happy with your purchase mail it back within 7 days for a full refund minus shipping.
All items are guaranteed to be of the period/age stated.
We will often take items in on trade/consignment if we have a market for them.
Delivery services often available .
Items are described as accurately as possibly. If we attribute something to a particular state there is generally a good reason; we do not automatically assign an attribution to a state that merely benefits the value of the piece, unless there is provenance or a similar know group that gives us a good indication of its origin.
One of the biggest perils with purchasing objects from the internet, without seeing them in person, is being disappointed with your purchase. Modern photography is wonderful, but it can be used to hide major flaws and defects especially photos used for internet auctions. Working with a knowledgeable dealer is a good way to avoid disappointment.
We offer advice and free consultation to our clients who are looking to build, refine or improve their collection.
Often, active dealers are privy to information that may not be readily available to collectors, such as authenticity or dubious provenance. Current market trends and true values of antiques may only be know be the dealers who are actively buying and selling in the current market.
Please feel free to contact us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
