ABOUT US

Alexander George Antiques’ enthusiasm and unerring passion for the finest English furniture is evident from the moment you enter our gallery in rural Oxfordshire.

Here you will find examples from the most prestigious of the 17thand 18thcentury cabinet-makers, craftsmen of the Golden Age including Thomas Chippendale, Coxed & Woster & Gerrit Jensen.

Whether you are a collector or a first-time buyer the choice of pieces will inspire. Each has been carefully selected for its exceptional design and provenance, as well as in many instances its academic significance.

Originality and authenticity are paramount; and using our extensive knowledge from many years’ experience in furniture conservation and restoration we can ensure that our clients can buy with absolute confidence.

Sharing of knowledge is very much at the heart of our ethos, with an emphasis on building relationships where we can learn and grow together. As a consequence, we have built up a reputation of trust and integrity and a customer loyalty that has resulted in our furnishing some of the finest private and museum collections in the world.

SELLING WITH ALEXANDER GEORGE ANTIQUES

We recognise that choosing to sell, whether it’s a personal collection, an individual piece or something inherited, can be a difficult decision. Our aim is to help you through the process to ensure that you achieve the best possible price.

We would encourage you to approach the auction rooms and are happy to give advice and tips. Unsurprisingly, given the auction house fees which can be as much as 40-50% of the total sales figures with commissions, photography, insurance and handling fees, clients more often than not choose to sell with Alexander George Antiques.

Mark Alexander Pargeter

Director

Mark has a passion for furniture; his enthusiasm is infectious, as is his pursuit of knowledge.

He started his career as an apprentice restorer working for a variety of well-known workshops in the Cotswolds. The depth of knowledge and experience of furniture construction gained during this time was the perfect platform from which to move into the antique dealing world, which was always Mark’s true ambition.

A move that has proved remarkably successful for Alexander George Antiques as his dynamic approach and keen eye has resulted in them handling some of the finest pieces to come to market in recent years.

Add to this his warm and friendly personality and it is unsurprising to learn that he has earned the respect of his clients and peers alike, forging many friendships along the way.
