Antique Country Furniture is what the antique trade usually calls pieces of English antique oak, Pine and Elm, basically locally available timbers. Country Furniture has more of a well used charm sometimes with a rustic feel, and always in the original condition with a lovely patina from years of use. We mainly only wax these wonderful original pieces by hand as if you re polished them you would take away the charm and character that takes years to accomplish. They are the ideal pieces of furniture for the antique enthusiast who can fully appreciate the history, remarkable simple old repairs and usage, so appeal more to the true antique lover. They are more suited to the Farmhouse or country cottage where rustic beams are visible along with lovely old oak floor boards. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
