The company is owned and run by me, Barry Parker. I have been collecting design items for many years. Much of our stock is that collection. As far as possible I research all items using authoritative books. I try not to use the internet searches to confirm authentication. I also photograph any damage, you might need to use the on- screen-magnifier. The objects are mostly in their original condition or as I have found them. Occasionally when the paint work is in poor condition I will get it sand blasted and a new powder coating applied. This will be included in the description. Items are stored in the Netherlands and the UK and I travel quite frequently between those two countries. This means that at times I might be in the wrong country to dispatch items immediately. I will inform you about any delays before any order is taken.
