HERE ARE A SELECTION OF OUR MANY CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS...
Early 20thc Derbyshire Blue John Vase:
The Blue - Juene baluster shaped vase which I purchased from you a couple of days ago, arrived by special Royal Mail delivery service, well before the allotted deadline time today. Your careful packing was quite impressive and could only be surpassed by the quality of the antique treasure itself, as it was everything that I hoped it would be and more.
Sometimes, a well positioned picture online can lead to disappointment when viewed in the flesh, so to speak, but in this case I was quite taken aback by the natural beauty of the piece and its condition.
As this was intended to be a surprise gift to my wife on a special anniversary in October, she was not supposed to see it until the day in question but , having been swept along by the beauty of the piece, I could not help but abandon the idea of a delayed surprise and I simply had to present it to her today and how pleased I am that I did as she was absolutely speechless in the best possible way.
Please accept our thanks for the way the business was conducted and for the doubtless pleasure this treasure will give us for years to come.
Please accept our sincere thanks for such a pleasant experience and wish you every success in your antique business.

Mrs S, Kent
Item: 19th century fine burr walnut bonheur da jour
I was looking for a beautiful burr walnut desk so decided to 'google' it and came across 'LVS Decorative Arts' website which immediately came across to me as professional & clear and showcasing some high quality items. The photos of the desk were of good quality and Liza sent me the originals after contacting her. On receipt of the desk (bonheur da jour) the condition was even better than I expected and I immediately fell in love with it. Dealing with LVS and Liza has been a great experience throughout and I would not hesitate on recommending to friends & family and am sure I will keep an eye on the stock and purchase again in the future.
