Antique Furniture

Eaglemont Antiques brings you the finest pieces of antique furniture from the 18th and 19th century. We acquire stock that has generally been un-tampered with and is in as original condition as we can find, we perform restoration or conservation work where necessary, sympathetic with the age and style of the piece, ensuring that the original patina and look of the furniture, is preserved as much as possible. We believe that an antique should show to a certain extent its age, we do not "over restore" pieces which perhaps could lead to confusion with a modern reproduction.

The furniture listed on this website is only a sample of our current stock. If you are looking for furniture to match a particular style, why not email us with the style of furniture you are looking for, along with the measurements, to enable us to meet your requirements. We will reply by email, with photographs and prices of furniture that could match your style.

In the first half of the 19th century, the mass production of furniture began, using newer, steam-driven woodworking machinery. Since the demand for functional furniture increased after the Industrial Revolution, unskilled labor was used to assemble them rapidly, bringing down the high standards of quality. However, limited quantities of finely-crafted desks continued to be constructed by master cabinet-makers for the homes and offices of the affluent.
