Hi, my name, is Caryl and I am the owner of Violet Grey – a dealer in the UK who specialise in unqiue antiques for the garden and home.
We are proud that we have a very high percentage of customers who return to our site on a regular basis and make multiple purchases. We believe this is because Violet Grey is so much more than just a reseller.
We have a very simple rule about everything we acquire – we only buy what we really like – authentic items with style, form and originality that sit well in both contemporary and traditional settings. We source the very best pieces from specialist markets, fairs and contacts across Europe.
We keep a keen eye on current design trends so that we can offer related items and really enjoy finding vintage pieces and reimagining them having a second life as a decorative garden item.
Other than light conservation we don’t generally restore our items as we take a view that their signs of ageing are part of their unique beauty.
Once prepared for sale, each item is photographed and pictures uploaded on to our website and social media channels. Everything is stored in our stock rooms to ensure every image remains truly representative of the item.
