VIEWINGS
We have had a reputation for being a long established antique dealer in London having had showrooms concurrently running in Islington, Chelsea and Ascot. We have relocated our new showroom which is easily reached between A1 or A10 to just outside of Hertford, Hertfordshire to adapt to our customers buying habits which are predominately online. This has enabled us to offer our goods at significantly reduced prices, as likewise our overheads have been considerably reduced therefore passing our savings on.
