Your artwork will be covered worldwide, in gallery or in transit, and we always ensure claims are paid quickly to put your mind at rest.

Ownership of beautifully-made, functional domestic antiques has always been one the joys of collecting. They reflect the changing methods of manufacture, style and taste in home furnishing throughout the centuries and generations.

Many people who wouldn’t necessarily describe themselves as collectors take pleasure and pride in acquiring good quality items of furniture either though the trade, at auction or through family inheritance.

Many insurers don’t provide cover for items like antique furniture under standard ‘home contents’ policies. Many such ‘contents’ insurance policies have a ‘single article limit’ that assumes that no single antique furniture item covered by the policy is worth more than the stated limit – or require you to individually list all objects which exceed a prescribed value.

Our insurance for antique items includes cover for accidental damage and theft and if you acquire a new piece, cover is automatically extended for a period of sixty days.
