Know what you want ? We’ve developed a 3 step process to give a smooth and clear way to do business & bulk order restored British Antiques via filled shipping containers (or the van of your choice)
Below is an example of our 3 step process - how you can choose with us directly. If it's of interest please do get in touch to get started, just email Commercial@BritishOriginals.com or click the get in touch link below.
STEP 1: Select the function or type of the items you are looking via our standardised categories
An Example Order:
|Chest of Drawers >120cm W||6|
|Desk - Pedestal||5|
|Mirror - Table||25|
STEP 2: Select the style and finish of the items
Example A: 5 Desks
ERA – 1750-1830 Georgian/Regency- aka. “Whigs & Trading Companies”
Typically Georgian mahogany, walnut & dark oak. Classic simple lines, enhanced by age.
FINISH - French Polish ( Shellac)
Example B: 8 Dining tables
ERA – 1930-1950 “Hearth & Home”
Typically dark or light oak & Beech. Mid 20th C simple styles & smaller sizes.
FINISH - Light oak , Waxed
STEP 3: Select what level of restoration we should do to the items.
Choose from our three interchangeable services, to have your items shipped unaltered, or returned to sparkling originality.
Level 1 - SIMPLE SOURCING
We find & ship items in their “as found” states. This can be specified at different levels of restoration effort that will be required on them.
This suits :
- People looking to use local resources to fix & finish items
- People looking for raw pieces to customise into local styles & finishes
Level 2 - REFINISHED TO GO
- Those who don’t have a local restoration capability or appetite.
- Those who want functional & fabulous pieces ready to sell or use.
- Those who enjoy the character of old pieces where age shows. Sensitive repairs can be clearly seen and pieces have a feel which encourages them to be enjoyed rather than just dusted.
*1 Dependent on what's need this includes; Woodworm treatment, Repair, Veneer patching, Upholstery and Wood finishing (French polish, Shellac, Wax, Varnish, Paint, )
