1) How Should I Care For My Purchase?

In most cases, our products need little or no maintenance.  Metal surfaces should patinate naturally over time and take on a mellow appearance that is aesthetically pleasing.  You are, of course, at liberty to use proprietary waxes and polishes if you wish to create your own look.  Please contact us for advice if you are unsure in any way.

2) How Do I Make a Purchase?

Browse through our shop and select the items you wish to purchase by adding them to your shopping basket.  Once you have completed your selection click on "Checkout" and you will be asked for a few details that are required to process your order.  We accept Paypal and the following major credit and debit cards: Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Solo, Delta, Visa Electron via secure PayPal payment system.

On receipt of your order and payment clearance we will ship your goods as described above. Once goods have been despatched we will advise you by email.

The description of the goods you order will, so far as possible, be as shown on our website at the time you placed your order. However, whilst every care is taken by us to ensure that the description and specification of our goods are correct at the time of publication, due to the limitations of photography, broadcasting, browser software, and other factors beyond our control, colour of goods you receive may differ slightly from the brochure or website reproduction.

Some of the perfect condition products we sell may include a manufacturers warranty against faulty materials or workmanship. This does not include everyday wear and tear. 

Sample and second quality stock is not covered by a manufacturers warranty.
