A. All prices we quote will be Ex-Works and at List and are subject to VAT for all U.K. & E.C. Sales, and to the cost of delivery or of Export Packing and Shipping for all Overseas Sales. Prices quoted in currencies other than GBP will be subject to the exchange rate(s) prevailing on the date of order.

B. Any discounts are as stated or as agreed previously.

C. LEAD TIME: Approximately 12-16 weeks to Order/Consignment being ready for delivery or to be taken into the Shippers. This can often be sooner but can vary dependant upon the piece / pieces concerned and how busy our workshops are at any given time. Please always contact us to confirm or check on this.

D. TERMS : Confirmed Order in writing plus deposit of 50% of the total invoice value with the balance in full due 7 days prior to delivery into the Shippers or upon delivery for U.K. Sales.


We are happy to offer a fully comprehensive export packing and world-wide shipping service. This is carried out on a fully insured (CIFj door to door basis between our workshops and your nominated delivery address and is charged at 'Cost'. This has to be quoted on an individual basis, needless to say, as the price will vary dependant on how many pieces may make up any one given consignment and where in the world it is going to be sent to. In order to be able to cost this element we shall therefore first need your intended delivery address in full.

Governing Laws

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and parties consent to and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales.


We are a small "top end" maker specialising in the building of bespoke custom-built copies of original period pieces to a level of detail accuracy, unique "warts & all" replication, patination and finish - such that anything we make will essentially be indistinguishable from the original period antique that it has been so faithfully copied from.

The emphasis on quality, accuracy, attention to detail and finish has led us to become prime and preferred makers to H.M. Foreign & Commonwealth Office for whom we build most of the bespoke special commission pieces used to furnish H.M. Ambassadors' residences and British Embassy buildings world-wide, and previously to have been asked to become makers to the company which holds the licence and sole world rights to be able to choose and have copied, any antique from any of the Stately Homes, Castles and Palaces owned and run under the auspices of The British National Trust throughout Great Britain.
