Welcome to Mersham Manor Antiques. A little bit about us. We are a husband and wife team, and have spent many years developing our knowledge as collectors of fine antiques. Along the way we have restored many period properties, and have enjoyed furnishing them in our favourite ” English Country House Style” and because of our passion for anything old & beautiful, and appreciation of real quality and craftsmanship, which sadly today`s furniture generally does not offer, we decided to turn a much loved hobby / obsession! Into a business and pass our beautiful finds onto other people to enjoy. With our endless “treasure hunts” for the original and authentic, we offer a diverse selection of antique furniture and quality decorative items, ranging from the 17th century to the 20th century in all price ranges, making it possible for everyone to own a little piece of history, and true craftsmanship. We have been collectors for over 30 years and have been successfully trading for 15 of those years. We regularly work with interior designers, fellow dealers and supply for TV, theatre and film productions. We are happy to source any particular items you may be looking for. Our knowledge and expertise allows us to source many varied and high quality items. Our showrooms are within our beautiful.
