Any questions about a product will be answered as quickly as possible, so that the customer can decide whether they want to continue with their purchase or not.

We strive to accurately describe the makes and ages etc of our products, using date stamps, online resources, books and trader descriptions, as part of our information basis. However, we aren’t antique experts and may on occasion be misinformed and will thus happily correct a description straight away.
