Christopher Clarke Antiques are one of the very few, if not only, antique shops that specialise in military campaign furniture and travel related items. We have a large and varied stock of antique furniture and smaller objects from rarer 18th Century portable furniture to late 19th century pieces such as campaign chests. Our inventory also includes naval and marine furniture, Anglo Colonial antiques and some military pictures and artwork. A huge variety of British campaign furniture was made from folding chairs, dining tables, games tables, and four poster beds to travelling bookcases, writing slopes, cutlery and decanter sets. All of these pieces and more have passed through our hands.
We have been established for over 50 years and our shop is in Stow on the Wold in the heart of the Cotswolds. We offer a friendly and reliable service and are experienced in shipping our goods to customers all over the world. We count several museums amongst our customers and have helped form a number of international private collections of campaign and knockdown furniture. We have also supplied hotels, Interior Designers and Decorators as well as customers just looking for an unusual one off purchase.
We are researchers and writers on the subject of campaign furniture and are active in expanding the knowledge and understanding of antique furniture that was made to collapse for travel. We have also lectured on portable furniture both in England and abroad.
