TERMS AND CONDITIONS

theantiqueshound.com is owned and operated by The Antiques Hound.  We are a small team offering a personal service and all orders are handled individually.  Please bear in mind that all the items sold by The Antiques Hound are original antique or vintage pieces and are described as such in the product specification.  As a result, there will be some natural wear and signs of ageing which add to the appeal of the product – we like to think of our items as ‘perfectly imperfect’.  

 

By selecting items from The Antiques Hound, you are not buying mass-produced replicas (which have been made to look old); but genuine antique and vintage pieces which are as individual as you are.  We try to describe each item as accurately as possible alongside the dimensions and a selection of photography. All products may be subject to small variations in colour and size from the images on the website.  We make every effort to display as accurately as possible the product colours, but regret that we are unable to guarantee the true colour reproduction because browsers, screens and printers do vary in colour output.  If in any doubt, please don’t hesitate to contact us prior to ordering.


Please read our terms and conditions prior to purchase and contact us with any questions via info@theantiqueshound.com or call us on 07593 129 559.


None of these Terms and Conditions affect your statutory rights.


1.    PRODUCT SPECIFICATION
The items sold by The Antiques Hound are antique or vintage.  Where known, we will provide as much information as possible on the specific piece, e.g. era, manufacturer, provenance. 

The Antiques Hound adds value by sourcing genuinely unique items and where relevant, sympathetically restoring them so that they can be re-loved by you. Please note that even with careful restoration, our items are not new so they will have signs of wear and ageing.  Where possible we prefer to leave pieces untouched.


The Antiques Hound will show clear and detailed photographs of each item, along with the description and price. If you would like any additional photos or have any questions prior to purchase, please contact us at info@theantiqueshound.com.


2. DIMENSIONS
Approximate dimensions are supplied for all items.  If you need the exact dimensions – especially for larger pieces of furniture, please just contact us and we will provide more information.


Prior to purchase, please ensure that your desired piece of furniture will fit into your home. Unfortunately, items cannot be returned because they are the wrong size or do not fit.


3. PRICES
All prices shown on the website are in pounds sterling (£), include VAT.  Please see section 5 for details on our delivery costs which are calculated at check-out.
