In 1892 Violet Fane said, “Good things come to those that wait” and after years in the planning and over 15 months of refurbishment, Richard & Sam Payne-Withers opened Bridport Antiques.
With an assortment of cabinets displaying everything from antique glass and silver ornaments to vintage jewellery, 1st edition books, militaria, china tea services, even, in its own alcove with Victorian kitchenalia. We have a gallery section with oils, watercolours and prints plus some exquisite 19th Century material including an English Paisley Shawl in perfect condition.
The furniture dates back to the 1600s so whether it’s Edwardian or the Stuarts, Georgian or Regency, country or formal, we have a growing range which is constantly changing. And, if we do not have what you’re looking for, leave us a description and we’ll put your details in the “Wanted Book”.
The website www.bridportantiques.co.uk is still operating whilst, like our building, is being redesigned to incorporate a catalogue of items available at Bridport Antiques and The Alleyways Antiques Centre. The next phase in expanding our range.
Our refurbished showroom is in the old Gundry/Amsafe head office building opposite Waitrose with our own customer parking out front.
Open from 10:00am every morning until 5:00pm, we are closed Thursday afternoon from 2:00pm and Sundays. Appointments for viewings can be arranged for outside of our regular opening hours.
