As dealers, we are also interested in purchasing your high quality antiques.
We do not deal in “Estate Condition” or “As Is” pieces. Unless there is an issue/concern/defect noted in the description, the buyer can be assured that there are none. Many times furniture pieces sold in “Auction” circumstances have problems, such as weakness in the structure, replaced parts, poor repairs, amateur glue or finish work, or veneer lifting/missing. We do not deal in “Flea Market” type items.
When Restoration is needed, we employ an experienced restoration technician and/or a professional artist. Traditional methods and materials are utilized to remedy any concerns. Hide glue was used during construction of furniture in the early 1900s. Such glue deteriorates over time, often creating a need for reworking in order for furniture to continue to be sturdy and strong. Furniture not properly restored does not honor the piece, nor protect the financial investment made by the buyer.
