Christmas Gift Ideas For Those In A Hurry

With the last week before Christmas Day upon us, finding the time to carefully select those last remaining presents is hard to come by.  Here at Graham Smith Antiques, we've done the hard work so hopefully you don't have to!  We have a wide range of classic gift suggestions for you to consider from ceramics and glass ware, to scientific "gadgets" and objects of intrigue.  Full details and photographs are available on our website.  However, for those who are in a hurry or are still looking for that unusual gift, here are a few ideas guaranteed to be a gift like no other!


First we have, a George III oval tea caddy (shown above).  With its classic, mahogany form and lock and key, this tea caddy proves to be a winner with any tea-loving friend or family member.  Next we have a late 19th Century travel chess set. As you can see from the photograph below, each piece has been wonderfully carved from bone and the board itself, although wooden, rolls up to fit neatly into it's own custom made box. The great thing about these kinds of gifts is that it provides the new owner with joyful pleasure again and again.  And finally, for those looking for something special and more feminine, a perfume bottle (shown below) would go down a treat. Edwardian cut glass with a beautifully decorated silver lid, this bottle is lovely even just as an ornament decorating a desktop or side board.





We are currently improving our company website to make the antiques in our collection even more accessible and to a wider audience. In the meantime we are providing links to new stock items via our Twitter and Facebook pages.
