Terms of Sale 

Antique furniture is old and we have done our best to describe any major faults. The buyer should expect imperfections such as shrinkage cracks/gaps, scratches, knocks, marks, wear, chips, distortion, repairs to structure and veneers, extinct woodworm holes, finish deterioration/patina and alterations. These features are to be expected on genuine antiques and add to their character and historical honesty. It is quite usual also for handles, drawer bottoms/runners, feet and other component parts to be worn or replaced over the years. Unless otherwise stated there is unlikely to be a key and the locks may or may not exist/work. Please get in touch before buying and we will send additional photos doing our best to describe the item honestly. This is always a good idea. Even better you are welcome to come and view the item before buying. Just get in touch for an appointment.

Deductions will be made for any damage caused whilst the item purchased is in the care of the customer (from customer's first receipt, to arrival back at our offices).
