About Corvidae Antique

*** Currently: Many items have been temporarily reduced to below cost price to make way for new stock. Additionally, we have already reduced prices by 15% on almost everything to reflect the strong dollar/weak pound following the Brexit vote over here in the UK. ***

Are you on instagram? Let us know so we can follow you. We're @corvidaeantique - we can also post video clips of most items if you want to see more than just a photo!

We are happy to offer layaway on all items to help make your purchase more affordable - just ask! Though please note we do not accept returns on layaway items.

We are a small UK-based family business and as individuals we've been trading since 1999 - although we've been avid collectors of sparkly things since birth, it seems. We do our best to price our items competitively from the start for quick sales so we can keep sending them out to happy new owners and buying more beautiful new treasures, which is what we love to do! But we are happy to entertain offers whenever we can.

Like our namesake (corvidae is the Latin name for the magpie family of birds) we have an eye for all that sparkles, for beauty, for the unique, for things that just have that extra, indefinable quality which makes you want to get them back to your nest as quickly as possible!

Our passion is jewellery and our main buyer (chief magpie) Ben has almost 25 years' experience of buying in the auction houses, fairs and markets of England and France. We also have a fantastic network of private sellers, dealers and jewellers to whom we can turn to find undiscovered gems, new to the market. If there's anything in particular you're looking for, we love a challenge! If we don't have it in stock we can often source what you're after very quickly - just say hi any time.

We prize aesthetic value over the intrinsic and while we love golfball-sized diamonds and bags of gold as much as anyone, for us, the real value to a piece is in its design, the quality of craftsmanship and of course, the story that the piece can tell. We like to offer affordable, one-of-a-kind pieces which tell a great story.

We sell everything from Georgian to mid-20th century, specialising in Victorian, Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts and Art Deco. Feel free to pick our brains on any of our items or anything else you may own or be looking to own. We're happy to talk on the phone about any detail of your order.
