Customer Quotes          Hi Gavin, I thought I would drop you a quick line to say how pleased I am with it! It is always difficult to judge colour correctly from a photograph on a computer screen so there was a certain element of trepidation when I agreed to buy it without seeing it! I need not have worried and it fits in perfectly. Once again thank you. Kind regards, Mark Taylor, (London)       Customer Quotes

Customer Comments     "To anyone who is concerned about using this wonderful company.....please don't be worried!    We bought two writers desks, one was a lovely antique French writing desk and another a large antique Mahogany desk. This company was personable, helpful and sent the desks to us in Denver with NO complications. They followed up to make sure we were happy and also provided cups under the desk to make sure they were of the optimal height. We were hesitant buying items so expensive online, but can honestly say our high expectations were exceeded!

Investing in Antique Furniture?

It is clear that many more people are looking at the conservation and restoration of good quality furniture.
As an investment, it can make good sense to put your savings into something you are going to use and enjoy probably for the rest of your life and be able to pass on to your children and grandchildren.  
Gone are the cheap throw away pieces of furniture, the shabby chic and the plank like oak furniture knocked together from flat packs from India and China.
More savvy customers choose to invest in quality antique furniture nowadays.
Although brown furniture did see a slump in popularity in England it has remained popular in Italy, USA and Canada as well as many European countries.
And we are pleased to see that in the UK is now seeing a resurgence again.
We trust that the general buying public continues to value the beauty, quality and expert workmanship that antique furniture has to offer.

Hi Kathi, 
The antique desk arrived this morning and we are so pleased with the condition of the desk.
Thank you for your patience towards delivery. With our being out of the country and the hurricanes,
it has extended the shipping time.  At last, it is here and we are thrilled.
Best wishes ,  S Hagel,  Florida USA   Customer Quotes

Care of Antique Furniture and Desks

Polishing and Cleaning:
Waxing with a good quality polish based on beeswax brings out the color and grain of the wood and provides protection. Do not use spray polishes as these often contain a large amount of water which will adversely affect french polished surfaces and leave white marks. Put a small amount of polish on a soft cloth and rub the piece until the wax on the cloth shines. This will burnish the surface and evaporate any solvent. Then polish with a clean duster.
If possible, apply the wax at night to allow it to nourish the wood and polish regularly until a good patina has developed. Normally, wax polish need not be used more than once every few months as too much wax will cause dullness and absorb dust.  However, frequent dusting is important, using a clean, dry, soft duster.Care of antique desks and furniture
