Welcome to the
J. Collins & Son website
Jonathan Biggs is the fourth generation in the trade and specialises in fine eighteenth and nineteenth century furniture and paintings. The items viewed within this site may be seen at his shop in Bideford, Devon or on approval by request. Good quality period furniture is now more affordable and will give generations of use for years to come.
When one thinks of good quality period furniture the well known cabinet makers and designers come to mind such as: Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779); Thomas Sheraton (1751-1806); Thomas Hope (1770-1831); George Hepplewhite (died 1786); and Robert Gillow who started his well known business in Lancaster in circa 1728. They inspired each other and many other cabinet makers and designers and as you look my stock within this site you may notice their influence in many of the pieces of furniture.View antique funiture for sale ›
