Canonbury – Hertfordshire Antiques Showroom

canonbury-antiques-hertfordshire20antiques20showroom201

Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire Showroom

The Canonbury Antiques showroom is situated in leafy Hertfordshire just outside Potters Bar – right where the A1 meets the M25. It’s a large warehouse open to the public full of goodies from art deco to English dining furniture. Most people’s comment on how much like an Aladdin’s Cave it is as it’s packed the rafters with goodies.

We are only 25 minutes north of London so it’s conveniently located and we hence get visitors from all over the UK (and world). Near to major London airports (Heathrow, Luton, Stanstead) and well connected by rail.

The showroom is on two floors and we specialise in art deco furniture, English dining furniture, Continental antiques, French furniture, bronzes, architectural antiques, porcelain, oil paintings and interiors. We are favourites with many London based interior designers. If you would like to visit our Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire showroom please get in touch.

Hertfordshire itself is a lovely place to visit – St Alban’s is just five minutes down the road, a lovely market town with Roman ruins and a gorgeous Cathedral, as well as good shopping. The surrounding country side is beautiful so it’s well worth making a day trip around it to visit some of the beautiful towns and scenery, or even if it’s just with a nice pub lunch.

Let us know if  you have any questions or would like to make an appointment in the Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire showroom.

We have been in business for over fifty years now (wow, time flies) starting off with various showrooms in London, including in Islington and on the famous Westbourne Grove in Notting Hill Gate, W11. We also had a gallery on Church Street in Marylebone. As the bricks and mortar trade backed off we decided to go 100% online and now sell to a global client base from our website – and this allowed us to move to larger premises in Hertfordshire near where we live which was great for our commuting time and overall quality of live. Of course being outside London allowed us to have more stock and increase our product range so we have a large range of goods in a much bigger space than we ever could have had in our London shops. We hope you enjoy our visit to the Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire showroom, it will definitely be an experience you won’t forget.

Antique dining sets in our Hertfordshire showroom

Antique dining sets are one of our specialities so please get in touch for an appointment. We have a large range of various tables and chairs – particuarly Victorian extending tables in mahogany and Regency pedestal tables in walnut. Around these large diners you can have a whole host of different dining chair sets from our large range, including Chippendale, Regency, William IV, Trafalgar and Queen Anne chairs. Nothing beats trying out these dining sets in person for size and comfort. You won’t be disappointed as the tables and chairs are made in England to centuries old traditions and will last for a lifetime and hence make a great investment.

We can ship any of these goods to all parts of the planet so please get in touch for a shipping quote. We have literally shipped to every continent on this increasingly small planet.

Entrance is free, the animals don’t bite and there are no disgusting pongs as in normal zoos. We have bronze gorillas, giraffes, alligators, deer, frogs, bronze stags, bronze bears, bronze elephants, deer, rats, cats, frogs, toads, bronze goats, bronze horses and bronze dogs (many breeds).

Bronze animals are great as being bronze they can live outside with no fear of rusting – plus they don’t take much feeding. Snap up a bargain on a crocodile, our prices on a family of stags aren’t too deer – taxi!

Sending Delicate and Valuable Goods to Every Corner of the Globe

EXPERT PACKING TO ENSURE YOUR PURCHASES ARRIVE SAFE

At Canonbury Antiques we send goods – valuable, often very delicate and fragile, like porcelain – to every part of the world. We have been doing this for many years and of course want you to feel confident in how these goods are packed to ensure they arrive safetly and in one piece.

There is nothing worse than buying something that arrives broken and of course it is in our interest that your purchase arrives safe. Otherwise we will have to refund you.

When packing we work on the premise that if this box was dropped from a height of ten feet or more would the contents remain unscathed? With our packing it would. This is because it’s hard to control what happens when the box leaves our premises and ends up on a UPS conveyor belt or dropped by a handler.

The photo gallery below shows a step by step of our packing process. In this case it is an antique Chiparus bronze with a marble base and it was double boxed.

The steps include:

1. The bronze is wrapped in bubble wrap.

2. Marble base is reinforced with cardboard. Must be protected from any chipping, scatches, dents and cracks.

3. Whole bronze is then surrounded by custom sized cardboard box which is cut down to size. Then totally insulated with lots of foam polystyrene (styrofoam) peanuts so that there is absolutely no movement in the box.

4. This cardboard box is then put inside another cardboard box. The outer cardboard box is insulated with polystyrene (styrofoam) boards and then more peanuts are put in the box so again no movement.

5. Box is heavily taped up. Box is taped with FRAGILE tape and stickered to clearly mark which way the box should be carried upwards.

We are confident if this box was dropped from a height of ten feet the bronze would be safe. Please be reassured when you buy from us we will do our 100% best to ensure the goods arrive in one piece.
