For over 40 years I have worked with antiques and, like my parents and grandparents, I have a genuine deep rooted passion for antique furniture and particularly 17th and 18th Century British furniture and early English walnut.

Our family name was Webberley and in the 18th and 19th centuries many Webberley men worked as cabinet makers and coach builders. Henry Webberley-Smith built one of Queen Victoria's carriages and it is still used by the British Royal Family today. When I was able to open my first shop it seemed right for it to carry that name.
In the last fifteen years I have closed my shops in Mayfield and in France and moved the Webberley business to a barn at my home with online sales and viewings by arrangement.

I have such admiration for the people who made these wonderful and rare things which have survived centuries of use. Many of the pieces I sell have longer histories, stories and voices than we can imagine - they have seen good times and bad, been neglected and loved again, endured conflicts, house moves, changes in fashion and fortune. It is heartening to touch and see these solid old pieces at times like this - made by skilled hands hundreds of years ago they remind us that the years march on, that bad things pass, that good things endure.

If you cannot come to East Sussex to view, simply ask for "home approval". If you like the piece when you see it "in the flesh", you can buy it on the spot. If for any reason at all an item does not suit when it arrives - simply return it with the courier and we will refund you in full. All you pay is a nominal amount towards the delivery charge and I will pay the return charge.

I consider it a great privilege to work with antiques and it is a great pleasure to re-home them so that they can continue to be used and as their makers intended. I provide detailed histories and provenance whenever possible so that they carry their stories forward.

Every piece in my stock is chosen with care and selected because I would love to have it in my own home - I describe and photograph my pieces accurately and aim that each will exceed expectations. I operate a full refund guarantee and am always available to offer a personal service and honest friendly advice.

With kindest regards, Debbie Tice
