Bringing you traditional British and European antiques
Nicholas Wells is a prominent British dealer of extraordinary design furniture and art with particular focus on items of remarkable quality, unique design and coveted provenance. Established in 2008, we have expertise in antique furniture made for the British and European courts from the past four centuries. We enjoy sourcing rare and beautiful inventory as much as we do researching and carefully restoring pieces, bringing them to life and realising their place in our shared history.
Dealing in the most coveted British and European designer antiques, we supply our international clients with some of the finest examples available. We work closely with a network of private collectors and dealers sourcing rare antiques from private international collections. We are also interested in offering desirable antiques and works of art from your collection! Please do contact us if you are interested to consign.
Our in house services also include packing and shipping with bespoke custom made cases that ensure the safest possible delivery. We also offer global shipping with our network of fine art shippers who also offer UK and international white glove delivery when required.
We are regularly asked for our expert opinion on the value of items. The process requires significant time to appraise and value fairly.
For this paid service we charge £100.00+VAT for each item appraised.
