We have seen many changes in the antiques business caused by world disasters such as the American Stock Market crash in the early 20th century, the Second World War and the 9/11 tragedy. These major world events and many others have encouraged us to adapt and improve our business in good and difficult times. Our priority is to give total customer satisfaction which in the antique trade means supplying genuine antiques with the correct description at a fair price and a quality that will always remain as a good investment.
