H C Baxter & Sons specialises in fine English furniture, particularly from the 18th- and early 19th-centuries, but also a range of other objects to complement their furniture, notably a large selection of decorative glass, predominately from the Whitefriars glass house.
Established in 1927, the family business was founded by Horace Baxter and his wife, and dealt from their Fulham Road business in Chelsea, London. They established a reputation for buying and selling quality pieces, exhibiting at major antiques fairs such as the Grosvenor House Antiques Fair and more recently at the BADA Fair.
The stock includes carefully selected Georgian pieces which are both decorative and often manageable in size, and therefore suitable for furnishing a wide range of properties. These include 18th-century and early 19th-century English furniture, pieces that are made from mahogany, walnut, satinwood and rosewood, some based on designs from Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton.
The current family partnership is headed by Gary Baxter and continues to offer a carefully chosen range of objects. Although no longer based in London, their stock can be viewed at showrooms in Eastbourne, East Sussex on a ‘by appointment’ basis, or at one of the London antiques fairs, where they regularly exhibit.
