Roy’s Antiques: Craftsmanship, Conservation, Sustainability
Roy’s Antiques’ Furniture is:
Real cabinet woods, shellac, beeswax, cotton, linen, silk, horsehair, brass, marble. NO synthetic foam, plastics or polyurethanes.
Hand made, start to finish, by craftsmen with hand tools, before soulless Victorian factory mass production. Meticulously restored today employing local skilled artisans using traditional methods and materials.
Mostly eight generations old so far and still going strong! Older than Melbourne!
Sourced locally to avoid carbon miles and to reduce costs. No single-use synthetic packaging such as styrofoam or plastic is used. New goods come with extensive packaging so this is a vital consideration.
Our elegant furniture originally graced mansions, town houses and chateaux.
Our original ancient furniture costs less than the price of making a new duplicate.
