Company Information

I have been collecting and buying/selling art nouveau and art deco for some years and in doing so have made many, many friends worldwide - indeed, a number of my customers are repeat purchasers. Many people are unhappy to buy from a website and understandably reluctant to give financial details over the web. I much prefer to make verbal contact with my customers before making payment arrangements - thereby providing a more personal service to potential customers. I do not operate a credit card payment page for security reasons and also because I find my customers appreciate a personal service on a one to one basis, which is why viewing is strictly by appointment only. Please don't hesitate to contact me for a reassuring chat, or to discuss any detail of a purchase you may be concerned about.

All the information on my websites has been checked for content and accuracy, but the possibility of errors does exist. All items on my website are, to the best of my knowledge, original pieces from the era, unless otherwise stated.

As my company is mainly web-based, I operate a viewing by appointment basis, but to suit my customers whenever possible. Therefore we are generally available for viewing at any time, including evenings and weekends. Please try to give plenty of notice if you would like an appointment - especially as your items of preference may be at my storage facility 10 minutes away. Some larger items may have to be viewed at the storage area and will therefore require an onward journey. In some cases where I am not available, or away on a buying trip, my associate company, Sheryls Art Deco Emporium, may take over the viewing appointment on my behalf.

We work hard to ensure that all pieces are described accurately and with a full condition report and photos prior to purchase, but due to the quantity of stock and limited webspace, it has not always been possible to give a full website description and condition report on every item. Please do not hesitate to contact me, by phone or email, if you require a more in-depth description or condition report, or further pictures, quoting the item reference number. It is company policy to provide a full condition report and more detailed pictures of items before completing a sale, especially due to the high cost of shipping of the heavier items.

As you will see from our item descriptions, we do our best to provide potential customers with accurate descriptions of items listed, however I would remind buyers that they are buying antique or vintage items which are most certainly of age and will have some wear from use unless otherwise stated. Please do not expect such purchases to be like new or without sign of age or wear, as those items are more than likely to be reproductions.

It is expressly recommended that any item with an electrical connection purchased from these pages, be rewired and checked by a qualified electrician who has experience of local electrical connections and regulations, as some of these fittings are old, (possibly up to 100 years old) - of foreign manufacture and therefore possibly less than the current minimum required standards.

I ship internationally. Purchasers must pay the appropriate postal/shipping costs which should cover available insurance. Shipping is expensive for heavy and larger items. I send with Parcel Force. For bulk or larger items I have a shipping agent who crates expertly and has been praised on many occasions for his work. The smaller items I pack myself exceptionally well with professional packaging materials to avoid breakage. I recommend the less time spent in transit the better.

I accept cash, credit and debit card, UK personal cheque, bank transfer including internet transfer - to be cleared prior to shipment, and PayPal. Overseas buyers may pay by international money order, bank (wire) transfer. International rates are calculated at the bank's rates for that day. Please note that payment must be in UK pounds sterling, or they will incur additional bank charges to convert to sterling.

As a general rule, I do not discount single item prices, but I do consider each item/purchase individually.
I operate a discount for bulk purchases. 10 items or more may be eligible for up to 10% discount and 5 or more items may be eligible for up to 5% discount. This discount is totally at my discretion, and is available to trade and private purchasers alike.

I will consider a lay away scheme for purchasers. A deposit secures an item and regular payments are made until full payment (including postage) is made. I will then despatch the item. A number of my customers use this facility and I am happy to operate this scheme.

Please email me for availability or any other enquiries. I also purchase any art nouveau, arts and crafts and art deco items no longer wanted. I'm sorry NO VALUATIONS!

We are based at Warlingham, Surrey, England - only 10 minutes from Junction 6 of the M25. Rail links to Upper Warlingham (East Grinstead line) or Whyteleafe (Caterham line) stations from London Victoria and Charing Cross/London Bridge are very good and will take approximately 30-35 mins. We are 5 minutes walk from Upper Warlingham station and I will do my best to provide transport to and from Warlingham station for anyone purchasing items, and for those less energetic deco lovers, subject to prior arrangement. Please feel free to ring me if you require any help or further information regarding directions etc. A general area map is displayed on my 'Contact Me' page.

Please note that viewing is strictly by appointment only. This allows me to give a reasonable amount of time to each customer, and due to the volume of stock, viewing can take a considerable time.
