Redecorate your home from the ‘cellar to the dome’ with Windsor House Antiques, one of Britain’s leading antique dealers. Windsor House Antiques has been the go-to location for interior designers, architects and collectors for sixty years, for that perfect piece.
Windsor House Antiques really does have something for every home, with one of the broadest collection of antiques available from Sèvres porcelain chargers to four-poster beds, pieces from the 16th century to the Art Deco period. If redesigning a house perhaps a George III Neoclassical fireplace or a pair of monumental 19th century arched doors is just what is needed?
Perhaps a pair of stone urns or columns for your park or city courtyard would work. Not to mention a blackbuck head for a shooting lodge or chalet. For a dining area, eighteen 19th century dining chairs may be useful or perhaps six 17th century walnut chairs not to mention a set of four 19th century faux bamboo elbow chairs for the conservatory. Key signature pieces offered include a superb18th metamorphic Pembroke table, a three pillar 18th century dining table, a fine selection of refectory tables, a pair of Venetian blackamoors or a 16th century scagliola table?
For collectors of porcelain, pieces include Meissen figural groups, a 92 piece Spode Imperial service painted in the Japanese style from 1823, a pair of Cantonese ovoid vases, an 18th century Famille Rose bowl to name but a few. Or add ambience to your home by choosing from the one of the largest collections of period or unusual table lamps available or a period chandelier?
An exquisite Chippendale secretaire bookcase from 1770 less than a metre wide is ideal for a small apartment. Whereas an 18th century triple breakfront bookcase with crisp anthemion and scroll carving at just under 4 metres in width may be ideal for a country house or spacious loft apartment. With an Art Deco birchwood wardrobe for the dressing room of the man about town.
Christmas is on the way, so how about unusual presents for those who are difficult to buy for. A 19th century pillar box as seen at ‘Downton Abbey’, an ancient spice box for a keen cook. Or choose from a model of the frigate Pomone from 1820, a bronze of a triceratops or a leaping salmon or the wide selection of 18th and 19th silk and tapestry cushions.
The Company is at the former Royal residence of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Barnwell Manor, which has been the flagship gallery for eighteen years. D.
