Furniture from 17th century to the 19th century
Our auctioneer Jessica is a great lover of period furniture, having begun her career working as a Furniture & Art Restorer, and so if you are wanting to invest in a beautiful piece, she is the person to talk to! From Carlton House desks to early 17th century oak coffers, Stamford Auction Rooms will not fail to tempt you into buying a period piece.
We prefer not to use the term ‘brown furniture’ which has been used to describe a certain group of furniture that is not as desirable as it once was. We like to think that all furniture can be upcycled, re-used and enjoyed again, and we are proud that our industry is ‘green’ – we are big supporters of the Antiques are Green campaign, a message which we like to share, so whatever you are looking for or wishing to sell, we are sure we can provide the help you require.
