What condition are your pieces in and are they authentic?
Our policy is to present things so that they are slightly better than described, so that our customers are pleasantly surprised when they receive shipments from us. Several moving services have told us they love to deliver our Antiques because our customers are so happy when they see their pieces. We have a large restoration shop restoring pieces the way we would want to take them home ourselves. For example, we do not do museum or absolutely authentic finishes that are delicate and hard to live with. Rather, we restore antiques for both beauty and practicality in daily use in family homes and offices.
Our concern is more with durability and sturdiness in everyday use rather than for museum collections. All of our items are guaranteed to be as represented. Descriptions include the approximate age or "circa" date when each piece was made. More modern pieces are described as "vintage," meaning that they are not brand new, they did belong to someone, and date anywhere from almost new to 60 years old.
