Antique Bespoke Victorian Style Mahogany Open Bookcase£1,150.00 + VAT
This is a bespoke Victorian style mahogany open bookcase, which has been hand made by a master craftsman. Those of you who are familiar with my web site will recognize this model, because we have had many similar ones in the past in different woods & sizes. Most people just order them to their required specifications. We can have them made in any wood or any style or any size. They do take about 2-4 weeks to make & polish. If you are able, please come to the shop to view this bookcase & other models to see the quality. They all have the adjustable shelves on sharks teeth supports & the larger ones can be made to come apart. Please don't compare these bookcases to other ones out there in the market. The ones we make are better made than the original Victorian ones & they are hand French polished too. If you go to the re-constructed furniture category, you will see quite a few items we have had made or adapted in the past. We can use antique timbers in the right places to give even more character. The prices have risen a bit over the many years we have been doing these bookcases & I have struggled to keep the price under £1000, but the cost of materials & the work has now forced us a bit over that price, however they are still very reasonable for the quality of workmanship.

Pair of Antique Leather Porters Wing Armchairs£3,950.00 + VAT
This pair of deep buttoned leather Porters armchairs have been made from new & this particular pair were an actual order from a regular client of mine. They saw an antique single leather Porters armchair & asked if we could make a pair that were very similar. I must say, they turned out very well, so I thought we should photograph them & post them on the web site. Needless to say, we can take orders for singles or pairs & they can be done in whichever colour leather you want, because the leather is hand dyed after they are upholstered. We can also have them coloured with more distressing & antiquing. As they are entirely hand made, they do take about 4 – 8 weeks to make. It's a three step process – Make the frames, fully upholster them & hand colour last. It's also worth mentioning that the seats always have hand coiled springs, which will last a lifetime. They are also hand tacked too & have polished mahogany legs.

Very elegant antique Regency mahogany window seat in good condition, with a lovely fabric on the seat. I believe it dates to around the 1810-20 period & it has a lot of character. There are various markings & one small old repair, but all in keeping with the wood that’s nearly 200 years old.
