Hello John:

The watch holder arrived today. Thank you so muck, it's a great piece. I notice we have similar tastes from viewing your web listings and I have no doubt that we will do business again.

All the best for now.

Dear John

Just to say that Anne has just delivered the cabinet and we are absolutely thrilled with it. It fits perfectly into the space and is in lovely condition. I particularly like the rather dinky little ornamental keys and the marquetry is lovely.

If you find out anything about its previous life, I should be very interested.

With many thanks again,


Hi John,

Thanks for all your work getting the bed to us. It arrived safely yesterday and looks great.

We'll be keeping it in storage until the autumn when we re-do the room it's to go in. So whether it fits up the stairs or not will be a guessing game until then. But, if it doesn't fit, we'll just have to wait until we move (and make that fateful mistake of buying a house to fit the furniture!).

Pleasure doing business,


Hello John,
I'm happy to inform you that we received your posted tables. the packing is very professional and
all the tables are in good condition with no any damage. I highly appreciate your kind support.

Wish you all the best and a happy Easter.

Hello John,

Late Victorian Walnut Torchere

It was delivered at the time stated and by a very pleasant driver.

I am very pleased with the Torchere - it sits in my living room supporting a lamp and looks as if it has always been in my house. It is also the perfect shade of Walnut, fitting in with my other items splendidly.

If only these pieces of furniture could speak!!!! At the moment I am looking up the history of Torcheres.

Again, thank you so much.

Best wishes
