Items of Distinction
To quality for this page on the Wick Antiques website items have to be either of exceptional quality or impressive provenance. One which fills both criteria is the giltwood and Vernis Martin mirror made for the Dutch Royal family by Louis Majorelle, complete with the original invoice. Another is a dining table from Durham Cathedral or an exhibition quality cabinet by Giroux. Other pieces are similar to items in museums or royal collections such as the rare silver plated table attributed to Giovani Franchi or the amboyna and parcel gilt library table attributed to Seddon and Morel, suppliers of furniture to the Edward, Prince of Wales at Carlton House.
