Original Decorative and Collectible English Antiques

Overview - During our relentless search for quality antique metronomes we occasionally come across interesting and attractive antiques or collectibles that appeal to us and hopefully to viewers of this website. We are selective in our choices and try to offer quality pre-1950 antiquities at affordable prices, we try to research each item before listing so that as much information for every item is available in the description. The majority of listings will be of English origin unless stated and completely original to the best of our knowledge. We also endeavor to list all flaws, marks, chips or damage in any form so that there are no surprises on delivery. Please do not hesitate to ask for additional information on any listing and we are always available to answer any questions via our contacts page. 

NEW 2020 - Lignum Vitae Antique Lawn Bowl Reworks
 
Below you will find a new enterprise for the website and something that we have been advertising on popular auction websites for a number of years. We select high quality grains and defined wood patterns on aged Lignum Vitae English Antique Lawn Bowls and rework the generally worn, tired and damaged exteriors to reveal the true beauty of one of the hardest wearing, most attractive and rarest wood types ever manufactured. Generally for display as stand alone shelf or cabinet objects, these can also be used as paper weights, book ends or door stops, or gifted to anybody who appreciates fine workmanship and quality materials, long before the age of plastic.
 These items are hand finished through several sanding and lapping stages of abrasion and a gloss finish is achieved using nothing other than natural oils from the wood, hand polishing, lots of patience and a keen eye for detail.
 A very light protective coat of Renaissance Wax is added for protection. More information on Lignum Vitae is available
