What Our Customers Say

The House of Antiques is my first choice for finding object d’ art or rare and unusual curiosities. They were able to provide items which I am using in the feature films King Lear and Memoria Draco. Prices were very reasonable, beating other companies and delivery was fast. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

The House of Antiques will continue to be the first company that my film company, AJF, consults for objects that are rare and difficult to find.
