   A night on the tiles!

Posted: Thursday 7th September 2017
We are excited to have just sold a large run of antique encaustic cement tiles to a pub company. Laid in a random mix on the floors these wonderful tiles create a vibrant mosaic of colours and patterns. Dating from the late 19th/early 20th Century they have been very popular throughout mainland Europe, especially in old French and Spanish colonial countries.

   Weddings in Japan and Restaurants in Madrid

Posted: Tuesday 9th May 2017
What an incredibly busy time we’ve had the past couple of months extending our reach to countries far and wide. We said goodbye recently to two large container loads of reclaimed items bound for Japan to be used in the construction of a specially commissioned wedding chapel. Some particularly noticeable pieces included a spectacular carved oak church altar and ledge (pictured) and an ornately carved church panel screen. Continuing the religious theme, as these items left, we welcomed in a large quantity of beautiful vintage hardwood synagogue pews.
