About Us
Trinity Antiques is a long established British antiques and decorative arts business based in The Cotswolds, England. Known internationally as the go to company for offering rare, hand selected antiques of quality. During the past 12 years we have retailed over 75% of our stock to customers in the US. Gaining valued repeat world custom is absolutely the foundation of our business. Our trading philosophy is to offer scarce and interesting antiques that we ourselves would like to live with. We retail with integrity and professionalism at all times. Our guarantee is 'all purchases are guaranteed to be as described'. We interact with our customer's every step of the way and in the same manner as we would wish to be treated ourselves.

Victoria is a second generation antique dealer who has been in the Antiques business for over 20 years; Victoria has been joined by two other family members who now assist her in continuing the family tradition in the antiques trade. Over the past 12 years we have established a reputation for retailing original 17th, 18th and early 19th century antiques - in particular those that are difficult to find. We have a penchant for country antiques including watercolor on paper paintings, antique textiles, original antique costume and accessories, religious antiques, engravings and of course no home would be complete without some fine antique porcelain and pottery. One of our favourite styles being the English country house style, with its medley of decorative and interesting objects that all seem to just blend effortlessly together. We only buy what we like and prefer our antiques to retain their original wear and years of patina...we do not have our items restored. We add new stock daily and so please do subscribe to our shop; we would not want you to miss out on an item!
