For over 35 years, Christopher Buck Antiques have been dealing in English furniture of the Georgian periods.
Christopher Buck Antiques was established in 1983, the second generation of a family business started in 1957. This business was originally founded by Christopher’s father William (Billy) Buck, trading as Steppes Hill Farm Antiques.
Apart from operating at our shop in Sandgate and through our website, we also exhibit at major antique fairs in London. These include The BADA Antiques and Fine Art Fair at the Duke of York's Headquarters near Sloane Square in March and The LAPADA Art and Antiques Fair in Berkley Square in September. We also hold our own private exhibitions every year, either in the shop or occasionally, by special invitation, at a spectacular privately owned manor house in Kent.
Christopher also acts as the South East Regional Representative for BADA, a role previously held by his father for over twenty five years.
Christopher Buck Antiques stock
We specialize in English furniture of the Georgian periods, from 1700 to 1830. This encompasses styles from Queen Anne through early Georgian, Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton to Regency. This period epitomizes the height of English furniture making and includes a great variety of decorative woods including walnut, rich mahoganies and exotic imported timbers such as satinwood, rosewood and tulipwood.
Our stock is carefully chosen for its originality, colour, patina and desirability.
We provide valuations for insurance, probate or division. We also offer advice on restoration, repair and conservation.
We are happy to recommend skilled craftsmen in such diverse disciplines as cabinet making, polishing, upholstery, horology, silversmithing and ceramic restoration. We can also assist with the disposal of chattels from deceased estates.
