Furniture and Garden Ornaments

Much has been said these past few years about the state of the furniture market and particularly ‘brown furniture’, and although the prices achieved are not what they use to be, small pieces of Georgian oak, walnut and mahogany furniture in good original condition are still desired and usually sell if priced realistically. Like many other areas of collecting much of the market in furniture has moved towards the retro period and in particular for designer pieces, especially of Scandinavian and Italian design.

The market for Garden ornaments can be quite seasonal, though the better pieces will make their prices no matter what time of the year. Our sales often include various items of garden furniture, and often stoneware planters, and statuary also can be found.
