Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 30 years, and has developed a distinctive stock, with a strong emphasis on military and naval furniture and works of art.
The extensive stock can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".
Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the century. They then relocated to Greenwich in 2004 and now work from a large Listed Victorian warehouse close to the river Thames between the Woolwich ferry and the Thames barrier in South East London. At this address they are open by appointment only, however, for customers’ convenience they will take any item of stock to 111 Portobello Road, London W11 2QB, for inspection.
