Unforgotten splendour.

Specialising in the valuation and sale of antique and contemporary furniture... From traditional Georgian and earlier furniture all the way through to modern design pieces from the 1960s by designers such as Gillows of Lancaster, Augustus Pugin, Isokon, Liberty, Thomas Chippendale to name but a few. In a time that can be difficult for traditional antique furniture, Dawsons still enjoy excellent results for pieces of exceptional quality, rarity and age.

We have seen shifts in buyers tastes and attitudes towards interior design, meaning the right piece will always find its buyer.
