Are all your products genuine antiques?
We have handled many items over the course of our trading, and using our experience, will only buy items that we know to be genuinely antique.  We will always mention replacement glass drops, shades or anything that we suspect has been added or altered over the years.

Our dateline is 19thC up to the early part of the 20thC, but if we feel an item is particularly suitable for our stock, we will buy pre 1950’s chandeliers especially if they are in pairs.  

All of our stock is original; we do not deal in modern copies and for this reason we don’t carry a large range. We hand pick individual, quality items that are genuinely antique, have been well made, and would look good in most settings.


How can I buy with Confidence?

Established 28 years ago, Lancaster Antiques have specialised in period Lighting, Chandeliers, Brass and Copper since 1988. We sell mostly pre 1930’s, original, gas and candle powered items converted to electricity, or early 20th chandeliers, lamps, and antique candlesticks. Our lighting is rewired by a qualified electrician to comply with UK regulations unless specified.

We sold period lighting, Chandeliers, Brass and Copper in one of the best Antique shops in the UK for over 22 years and now our items can be seen here and on Selling a large, well recognised Antiques website.

We always aim to describe items as accurately as possible, flaws and all, but if further information is required please do not hesitate to get in touch, and we will help in any way we can, and provide more photographs where possible.

We have been registered with PayPal for several years which gives both parties piece of mind.
