Visiting our shop
The items listed on our website (and many more) are available to view in person at our shop in Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne. Directions can be found here. The shop is open Mondays to Saturdays, 11am to 5pm. Viewing outside of normal opening hours can be arranged on request. There is free parking directly outside of the building.

We personally take each online order over the phone.

We accept all major forms of credit and debit cards (excluding American Express) and can provide you with a receipt at your request.
Cleaning & Restoration
All of the items for sale at Antiquities Francaises are lovingly cleaned and restored by our proprietor Babette Malleret. Our pieces are ready to place directly into your home, unless otherwise stated. For specialist repairs, such as to clock workings or metalwork, we engage trusted local tradespeople (details below).

Collection and delivery options
We are happy for you to arrange your own collection and/or delivery, but are delighted to recommend local courier company Durham European Couriers. We have worked with DEC for over ten years. They provide a consistent and excellent service, tailored to the delicate task of safely transporting precious (often breakable) items. Delivery costs vary depending on the delivery address and the item(s) in question but we will be happy to estimate these costs with you before purchase.
