Hello Graham, the Bohemian Jug has just arrived and I am extremely pleased. It was a pleasure dealing with you and your associate who I initially spoke to on at least two occasions. You run a first rate business and I appreciate your promptness and courtesy. I am also amazed that this piece was not picked up more quickly but the main thing is that I got it. Thanks so much. P.S. The packing was very well done.

Dear Graham, The Royal Worcester Vase has arrived today. i think it is wonderful and looks even better in the flesh instead of on the Internet. Than you for the speedy service and safe delivery of the vase. I am very happy with my purchase from you and would recommend to others. Thanks. Nigel - Jersey

                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Dear Graham,
Just to say that the service arrived safely. Thank you for so carefully packing each item. I think the fruit service is magnificent. There is always a risk over the Internet, but, because of the very high quality items in your shop, I was confident that everything would be OK; in fact the china has surpassed my expectations. Indeed I have arranged for the service to become part of the Spode Museum collection after my death - much to their delight. It amazes me that each plate has a different painting. Your courier was politeness itself. Chris - UK

                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Received in good form. It's so gorgeous! Thank you so much, Richard - USA


                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Good morning Graham, Just to confirm that the plates arrived yesterday and I am delighted with them. Thanks very much indeed!

Dear Graham,
I just wanted to let you know that the table and chairs arrived safe and well.  We are delighted with the finish and they look great in our dinning room. My apologies for not writing sooner as we immediately went on holiday and then my work commitments were frantic. Many thanks for organising the delivery.
Best Regards James - Switzerland

Dear Graham, I am positively thrilled. The black forest ibex pair arrived yesterday. You did a beautiful job packing and the duo emerged from the bubble wrap in pristine condition. They are just beautiful and I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your help with this flawless transaction. I'll take a picture of them in their new home and send it to you when all the Christmas decorations come down. They look just terrific next to a black forest stag clock that I've had for a few years--the carvings could have been completed by the same person, that's how perfect they are. Here's hoping you and yours have a marvelous holiday season.With thanks and appreciation, Laurie - USA

Dear Graham,
I wanted to let you know that table was safely delivered on Friday.  It fits beautifully in our gallery.  It is in excellent condition especially that it's over 150 years old, we are very pleased with it. Thank you for your assistance and it has been a real pleasure working with you.
Kind regards, Chris - USA

Regards, Melvin - UK

                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Graham, Just to let you know that the chest has arrived and appears to be in ok shape, as does the sewing box, which is more than can be said for the van driver who left in worse shape than he arrived. I must be fitter than him which is more surprising. Anyway, my kids are delighted, currently playing with the secret compartments and impressed by the one pound note that remained in one of the draws. Now that we know of a system for delivery we will have to look at other things to buy. I just have to persuade my wife of the benefits of English antiques over Italian modern.
Best regards. John - Lithuania

Dear Mr Smith

I just wanted to say what a resounding success the hat stand has been! It was just as described and the owner doesn't now know what he did without it!

Lovely result. Jennifer Heaven - UK

                                                                                                                                                                                                  

The above table has been safely delivered - thank you. It is a very nice item and to judge from its very "clean" condition has not seen very much use in its life to date. We are exceedingly pleased and it will now and in the future be put to the use for which it was intended. Thank you Kind regards Leon T Garner - UK

Dear Graham,

ust a quick note to say that im delighted with the black forest bear i bought from you on 14th october it was just as described, in fact even better. I have a few of theese bears but this one is the best beyond doubt. Thanks to you and your staff for the service i received. hope to buy more from you in the future. regards Gary - UK                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Dear Graham,

Just a line to let you know how delighted I am with the dresser which arrived safely a week or so ago. It is in excellent condition, just as it looked in the photo on your website, in fact. It is such an unusual piece and it looks wonderful in situ. I must say I am particularly delighted because normally I don’t buy anything on the internet, apart from airline tickets. But I fell in love with this dresser in the photo, and having established with you that it really did look like that, I had no qualms about ordering it . It arrived in France completely unscathed and now has pride of place “chez nous”.  Another plus is that the colour exactly matches a small gothic style table, as you will see in the photos I am sending you. Many thanks. Yours, Anne - France

Hello Graham,
I just want to thank you for the great bookcase we received last wednesday. It is really beautiful, even more than I expected from the pictures. It took it's place perfectly in our living room. We will soon give it a new life by filling it with our favourite books.
Thank you again for everything.
Regards Isabelle - France

                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Dear Graham  -  The box arrived this week. In great condition. It is even more beautiful than we had expected.  I'm sure my daughter and her new husband will love it.  We were looking for a a box that would contain a collection of Royal Copenhagen ornaments that we have saved for our daughter - the years since she was born.  When they put these away with their other ornaments, they can use this box for other storage or just as a decorative piece.  Thanks so much. We love it.  Sally - USA
