2012 COLLECTION OF 18TH CENTURY BRITISH

 

FURNITURE

 


 

 


 

Thank you for your overwhelming response to our 2011 Furniture Collection, announced last fall. 

 

It is now with pleasure that I announce our "2012 Furniture Collection".

This collection consists of 27 pieces, most already in stock, the balance scheduled to be here in mid-November.

Since January, we have sought to replenish and replace with furniture that is equally outstanding in its genre,

including a fine sidechair attributed to London chair and cabinet maker Giles Grendey, shown just above.

 

Once again, the prospect of getting furniture images online is very humbling; so I beg your kind patience.

Additional large images and full descriptions will be posted as time avails.

 

The following listings are arranged chronologically by date.

RED listings are in stock & linked for viewing.  CLICK these for details.

  Please contact me regarding anything of interest - even if it has not yet arrived.
