W.R.Harvey & Co.(Antiques) Ltd was founded over sixty years ago by Walter Harvey and is run today by his son David, the Managing Director. The founding principles of quality and integrity are adhered to today as stringently as they were 7 decades ago.
Harvey's have a passion for fine English antique furniture dating from the reigns of Charles II through to George IV. We were initially based in Chalk Farm, London and then expanded to gallery premises in Old Bond Street to provide an unparalleled service to our constantly expanding international clientele.
We are proud to have served many top collections and museums over the decades and continue to work together with numerous Interior Designers and Architects as well. We are able to offer a highly personal service to discriminating clients across the World.
Harvey's Georgian showrooms at 86 Corn Street, Witney: In 1996 we moved from London's Mayfair to our charming and spacious Georgian property in Witney, Oxfordshire, where we now display our outstanding stock of period pieces in room settings. We have also moved our conservation department to Witney where it is personally supervised by David Harvey.
After over half a century in the business of antique dealing, we have acquired a splendid collection of quality items ranging from cabinets to clocks and beautiful works of art. Within our showrooms you will find excellently preserved pieces dating from the reigns of ten monarchs. These include items influenced by designers from William Kent to Thomas Hope, and produced by such craftsmen as Gillows of Lancaster, Chippendale, Linnell and Vile and Cobb executed in timbers as diverse as Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, Satinwood, Rosewood and Kingwood. Whilst our main specialisation is fine English furniture of the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries, we have always had a selection of Oak Pieces along with other objets d'art.
Visit our Witney, Oxfordshire showrooms in the heart of the Cotswolds, and you will find authentically decorated rooms displaying our stock of English antiques to their very best advantage. Indeed, our showrooms are so convincing that you would not be surprised to see Mr D'Arcy standing by our fire or Tristram Shandy stepping in through the door. An outstanding range of stock backed up by our unsurpassed knowledge of English antique furniture made between 1680 and 1840 makes a visit to W.R. Harvey & Co a necessity for every serious collector.
