For reasons of fashion and function, the market for traditional British and European antique furniture has changed markedly in a generation. However, clients selling through Peter Wilson are often impressed at the robust performance of their unwanted antique furniture - particularly the finer pieces of 18th and 19th century cabinetmaking that a discerning pool of regional, national and international buyers continue to admire.
Our furniture buyers appreciate the quality, the excellent value for money and the individual nature of antique pieces - often choosing to mix old with new in their homes or interior decorating projects.
Regular fine art sales include pieces to suit every type of interior from the country house to the minimalist loft conversion.
It’s also true that the right piece of antique furniture still has the capacity to surprise at auction - as proved in July 2017 by a three-drawer boulle commode consigned by a client in Staffordshire. Much to their delight, it sold to a French buyer for £17,000.
