Abbey Group

People are talking!

When our oak dining table was damaged during our move we didn’t for a minute think that anyone would be able to restore it to its former state. The table was a wedding present, and so we are thrilled that you have not only repaired the damage so well that we can’t even tell where it was, but the table looks better than it has in years. I’m sure we’ll be back in future, and will be recommending your restoration services to our friends

How to care for your antique silverware

23rd October 2017

 

Taking care of antique silver is one of the pleasures of owning it. There is something hugely satisfying about taking a piece of tarnished, worn-out piece of silver and working it until it shines and shimmers again. Once the tarnish has been removed, your silver should be used every day, just as it was designed to be. Silverware actually looks its best when used every day, so you shouldn’t hide it away in a cabinet...

The art and antiques market is a complex place. The internet has brought a global-nature to buying and selling antiques and art that has moved the entire sector into very different waters.

Art is about far more than paintings – art can be 3D, it can be stuffed animals; antiques are no longer sourced at the local auction house or house sale, they can be bought and imported from around the world; the plight of endangered...
