Does our treasure chest contain something 'belonging' to your family?
There are billions of antiques, artefacts, family treasures - call them what you will - scattered accross the world.
Many of them are personalised in some way: an inscription, dedication, etc.
What do we do?
We buy suitable antiques, research them, try to trace a living descendant of the original owner and then reunite them with their ancestor's treasures.
But if this proves unsuccesful we then advertise the items here and sell them like any other antique except all of our items are sold with a family history which includes information about the original owner, their family and descendants down to the recent past. But of course, to protect privacy, we do not include details of living persons.
This is a fairly new venture for us and we have no stock ready to sell at the moment but we are preparing a few items and we will be in touch with the prospective owners. They will be given a private password which will enable them to view the item that we think will be of interest to them.
Watch this space!
In the meantime you could read about one of our early successes from our blog.
Just to let you know that both sampler and invoice arrived today. We are absolutely thrilled with this small piece of family history. Thank you so much.

Thanks again for your efforts procuring the sampler, finding a descendent who might treasure it, then taking the steps to make that "repatriation" a reality. You do incredibly good work, and it has been a pleasure working with you from start to finish
