About Walpole Antiques

Walpole Antiques

Description

Walpoles have now been established for more than 30 years. We were first in business on Church Street, Marylebone, but by the end of the 1980s the business had moved to 187 Westbourne Grove and we dealt from this parade until the turn of the century. On relocating to a large listed Victorian warehouse in South East London, in 2004 we were elected to The British Antique Dealers' Association. Although there are no longer any antique shops in our former section of Westbourne Grove, Walpoles maintain a presence in the Notting Hill area at Atlam, 111 Portobello Road, Monday to Saturday and at The Silver Fox Gallery, 121 Portobello Road, every Saturday between the hours of 7am and 4pm. Almost any item found on this website can be seen at Atlam but please make an arrangement prior to calling to avoid disappointment.

You will find our website updated regularly and if your interest is in a particular discipline you may well choose to "Search Inventory". However, the site is also divided into three themes. "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme.
"The Navy" similarly covers fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of The China Trade. Finally, there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".
