Our services

"The first and simplest emotion which we discover in the human mind, is curiosity."
Edmund Burke

As well as holding a stock of over 1000 quality and rare antiques at any time, Curious Antiques also offers a variety of support services. We value your custom and will do all we can to keep you happy and satisfied – and this applies to services as much as it does to our main business of selling antiques and curios.

We are always interested in purchasing fine, rare and curious antiques from the 16th to the early 20th centuries – the more unusual the better! If you have something to sell then we welcome your enquiry.

Seeking to furnish a house or hotel with quality or more unusual antiques? Or having difficulty finding that special object? Then let us do the hard work for you. Our extensive stock, combined with our network of contacts with dealers across the UK and worldwide, can help you find exactly what you are looking for. We have a track record of supporting clients wishing to furnish main or second homes, as well as country house hotels.

Looking for that unique or unusual gift for a wedding, birthday, anniversary or other special occasion? Whether it’s a full-size petrol pump, a one-armed bandit, a jukebox, a large African bronze or a six-foot tall Indian carved wood horse... we can find that special something! We also operate wedding lists.
Curious Antiques also has a network of carefully selected local trades people capable of restoring your antiques and collectables. Our skilled craftsmen and artisans really care about their craft and are passionate about the sensitive rescue of antiques. Services include furniture repair/restoration, restoration of paintings, metal ware refurbishment, gilding, French polishing, etc.

Moving your fragile and valuable antiques in a safe and reliable manner can be difficult – and not only because many couriers do not provide insurance cover for anything classified as ‘antique’. Curious Antiques offers expert packing, courier and export services for antiques – both within the UK and overseas. As experienced exporters of such items ourselves, we are familiar with customs and other procedures across a wide range of countries – including the USA, China and EU states.

Interior design
We have strong relationships with established interior design partners, and can provide design services and soft furnishings to complement the antiques you buy from us. So, having purchased your signature pieces from Curious Antiques, why not invite us to help you show them off to their best?
