What Our Customers Say

Sourcing new and outstanding props is quite a challenge these days, especially when you’re looking for something that is not only highly decorative but also fits into a director’s frame of mind.

The House of Antiques have some of the most outstanding and visually stimulating antiques and artifacts I have seen. After speaking to their team I was quickly reassured that they not only got what I was looking for but that they also understood the brief regarding our new production. They packed and shipped our items not only safely but on time for our first screen test. A highly professional and reliable team, highly recommended and very cool setup.
