Quintessentially French Brocante
Offers you a carefully curated collection of French timeworn treasures, selected for their authenticity and charm.
We scour the brocantes, puces and attics, in Paris and the French countryside, selecting only the most elegant, soulful and heartfelt pieces with that special ‘je ne sais quoi’.
Above all we want you to be as delighted by your experience with Quintessentially French as with the treasures we send you. Our many returning customers are testamony to this. If you ever have any concern or problem, please contact me staright away so I can resolve it.
All our treasures are vintage or antique. They proudly wear the marks of their previous lives - this is the quintessence of their charm. The traces of time past are what I value and search for the most.
A life time of patina and the beauty of an object can be removed in a few seconds. We therefore do not polish or ’restore’, beyond a wash with soapy water, soft brush or wipe with a soft cloth, as appropriate.
If you have any questions at all about your purchase, we will be happy to discuss them with you.
Your treasures will be carefully wrapped and sent worldwide using the most economical and reliable tracked service, please let me know if you need your order quicker as we can send it express, but there will be an extra charge. Postage is calculated by weight, volume and destination.
