David, London

Robert, the box looks very nice, and just as you described it. En route to Cornwall now to deliver it. The mark of a really good present is one that you would like to keep yourself, and this one absolutely fits the bill! If you feel inclined to keep your eye out for another one that I could keep for myself (knowing it would not have the same features, but something of great quality and similar size), you have a keen buyer here! Best, David

Richard lench Sutton Coldfield

When I stated in my last e-mail about four months ago that I hoped to be doing more business with you I certainly did not expect to buy three items all in one go!!! Where do you find such brilliant stock!!!! I’ve delighted to say I’ve just had my antique collection professionally valued for insurance purposes and valued said I’d really struggle to find such wonderfully original items at such reasonable prices – he thought the tiger fleck drawers were stunning and the other superb bow fronted drawers almost certainly by Gillows. Once again, one extremely satisfied customer – it’s a pleasure doing business with you. Please keep me informed of any new finds. Kind Regards Richard.

Louise Stewart Warwick

Rodger Baker Naples America

Just a note to let you know the cabinet was delivered today (yes, today Sunday!) and all is well. It was delivered in a solid, custom-made crate. Two men uncreated it and carried it carefully into the house where it was checked to ensure that all its pieces (key and shelves etc.) were together and to check nothing had been broken. It's a beautiful little cabinet in fine condition. We even found three original screws had been placed in a sealed envelope for safe keeping. Thank you for taking so much care. Roger

David Taylor Hampshire

Richard,lench Sutton Coldfield

Just to say I’m absolutely delighted with the Regency bow fronted chest of drawers recently purchased from you – having spent much time inspecting my purchase, I can’t fault the superb restoration which has retained the underlying patina of the piece – it’s a real gem – well done. As you have some really choice stock and I appreciate the very honourable way you do business, I’m sure I’ll be doing more business with you in the future. Regards Richard L.
