Based in rural Leicestershire, close to Melton Mowbray, Lily the Bowmaker is a small antiques business. I buy and sell fine antique and vintage furniture. I also undertake light restoration work, and small reupholstery projects. I advertise exclusively on the internet and do not have a shop. All my furniture is kept in dry secure storage close to my home. You can reserve an item for 7 days by sending me an email and arranging an appointment to view it.
We are a small family run business that has been dealing in fireplaces and architectural antiques for over 20 years. We take pride in sourcing, renovating and restoring to a very high standard and strive to co-ordinate items with a designer's eye, as we come from a design trained background. We have a keen interest in the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements of the early 20th Century and travel extensively throughout the UK sourcing unusual and quality items.
At Melton Antiques you'll find all kinds of antiques and collectables from roman times to the swinging sixties. Whether it's jewellery, glass, pottery, furniture or militaria, we have something for all our customers. Founded in 2013, 27 year old John Bean has turned the shop into a thriving business in just a short time. Both clients and cabinet holders value his opinion, knowledge and expertise.
