Georgian Antiques was started in 1978 by Padraic Dixon in a small premises at Jocks Lodge, Meadowbank in Edinburgh. His brother John Dixon joined the business in 1981, and we moved to another small premises by Holyrood Park. As the business expanded rapidly we acquired 4,500sq feet at Windsor Place in Portobello in 1983. Soon, we were on the lookout for even more space and during the famous Guiness takeover we acquired our current premises of a former Abbots Choice whisky bond in 1985, with over 50,000sq feet over 5 floors. We also have a back up warehouse nearby which comprises of 3 floors and gives us an additional 28,000sq feet of space!
We now offer one of the largest selections of antiques in the United Kingdom, and are the mecca for interior designers, the general public and the trade. This is the place to find anything from a prop for a television commercial to that special item of furniture for the home.
We are so lucky to have a fantastic team of 18 full and part time staff comprising of cabinet makers, French polishers, porters and dedicated sales staff. With a personal approach, friendly advice and efficient after sales care we ensure you find the antiques or works of art to suit your taste and budget, including the option of trying items in your own home prior to making any final decisions. Not only is our stock vast and varied, but also constantly changing, so it is well worth paying returning visits to the showroom or website.
