Due to the nature of our store, a great deal of research has gone into every item as we do not want to damage or change pieces that have historical significance in their current state. Therefore if any of our pieces are listed incorrectly, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Because we are a small, family-run business, at the moment our projects are relatively small scale and we cannot cater to extremely large custom orders. However, we pride ourselves on our finished products’ quality therefore will not sell objects in any other condition than advertised.
