If you’re new to buying antiques, the process can be quite daunting. There is a lot of false information around and sifting fact from fiction can be tricky. Many antiques (not all) are living art, many were created with the same time, care and level of detail as the finest artworks. Antiques are wonderfully versatile in terms of application, and the styling of them has evolved over recent years, and the way these antiques are used in interiors that has changed dramatically over time. If you can harness these techniques, you will create a fabulous interior. A few things to know…
Wallrocks reputation rests on the quality of its collection. We source only the best, hand selecting our antiques individually from around the globe – personally selecting pieces that will shine in both traditional and contemporary interiors.
If you are seeking an item of antique furniture from a particular period or region, talk to us and we will do our utmost to assist you. In the event that you request that we source a specific antique for you:
It is our intention to buy our collection in original condition and it is to our customers absolute benefit that we do this.
By buying our antiques in original condition, we have the significant advantage of being able to see what has, and has not been done to a piece over time. Has the quality been compromised? Has the integrity been compromised? We only buy antiques that are sound. Once a piece has been restored by another dealer, it becomes significantly more difficult to establish its integrity.
Wallrocks have very strict buying criteria…
While these criteria might seem obvious, it is difficult to find furniture that satisfy all these criteria at once.
