Our Craftsmen

We offer our clients access to the expertise of an unrivalled network of independent working craftspeople, based all over Britain. Some of them have worked closely together on our projects for decades, others are recent ‘discoveries’. All of them work to the highest standards of craftsmanship: if they didn’t, we shouldn’t work with them. So we can unreservedly recommend their products.

 

We closely monitor all their work for historical accuracy, and where required provide them with detailed pictorial and documentary sources and measurements to work with. And because we work directly with our craftspeople, overheads are kept to a minimum, and costs to the client are kept down.

 

Pottery and ceramics

From humble kitchen pots to sumptuous tableware flecked in gold, ceramics played an indispensable part in historic interiors.

Working with John Hudson, Britain's most famous and knowledgeable historic potter (http://www.hudsonclaypotter.co.uk/) and with other suppliers, we can offer ceramics of every period. We can produce replicas of pottery finds from your site or inexpensive pots for resale in your shop.

From Tudor salt-glazed stonewares to decorative Stuart slipware or Delftware and from early mediaeval cooking pots to Victorian Buckley ware chamber pots and ornaments, we can supply it all--and at highly competitive prices.
