Our Hertfordshire antiques showroom is in the gorgeous Herts countryside - just outside Potters Bar and right off the M25 (near the junction with the A1). It's really well situated and easy to visit for customers from all over the UK and the world. Heathrow, Luton and Stanstead airports are all close by. Potters Bar is just 20 minutes north of London on a train from Kings Cross station.
Many people comment upon first entering our Hertfordshire antiques showroom that it's like an Aladdin's Cave as it's packed to the rafters with all sorts of goods. We source our products from up and down the country and all over the world - doing buying trips to Paris, Stockholm, Brussels and further afield make it all worthwhile.
We have been in business for over fifty years now (time flies), starting with our first shop on Blackstock Road in Islington, North London in the late 60s. London in the swinging sixties - what a time! Then we had our famous shop on Notting Hill's Westbourne Grove in the 80s and 90s. As the business started to move online we decided it was time to move out to the sticks to a larger premises (and to thankfully eliminate our daily commute into the Big Smoke). So we're glad to welcome all visitors into our Hertfordshire antiques showroom. Many people like to make it a day out and to visit local attractions like St Albans, or have a lovely pub lunch. We've had visitors from all over the world.
We specialise in antique dining sets. Victorian dining tables, Regency pedestal tables with matching Chippendale, William IV or balloon back chairs. We also love art deco furniture and bronzes. Partial to Chinese and Asian porcelain, as well as contintental ceramics. Bronzes, lighting, oil paintings, sconces, Continental antiques and furniture. All the big architectural stuff - fountains, lifesize bronze animals, statues, marbles, water features and sculptures - are outside in our special section.
Please do come and pay us a visit - I think you'll really enjoy it at our Hertforshire antiques showroom. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment.
