Notice r.e. upholstered furniture post 1950.
Items of upholstered furniture produced after 1950 do not comply with the furniture and furnishing (fire safety) regulation 1988. therefore items purchased that do not leave uk are sold as works of art and must be appreciated from a safe distance. Under no circumstances are they ever to be sat on!
Notice re electrical items:
Lighting is tested and rewired if necessary before being offered for sale. However all lighting purchased should be tested by a qualified electrician before use as i cannot guarantee the safety of any electrical items sold. It is also recommended that all lighting is installed by a qualified electrician.
If you are interested in an item contact me via email or by choosing the “request info.” option. Feel free to request more detailed condition reports, shipping quotes or anything you wish to know. The pieces are stored 10 miles south of oxford and can be viewed by appointment. It is possible that some pieces can be brought to london to be viewed.
