Purchasing hand crafted or designed work

Please be aware that each item on our website is not mass market but an original piece handcrafted or designed by our partners. This will mean that you mean that some designer makers will have a range of their work in stock others will require more time. It is well worth the wait as your purchase will be hallmarked with a fingerprint, a filed line, a brush stroke and that no-one else will own exactly the same piece.

 

Product Pricing & Story

All prices published are set directly by our designer makers and are in pounds sterling. Buyers have the option of selecting a currency conversion option to view prices in Euro, American Dollar and Australian Dollars.

 

Please note each item purchased is hand crafted or designed by our partner designer makers. Each product purchased is original and is sold subject to its Product Story.
