Extending Dining Table, Regency Revival
"I received my table this morning.
It was pretty long to unwrap: I never saw such an excellent packing! It would have been more than enough for a H-bomb or jars of nitroglycerin.
The table is as described, except it is nicer than it appears on the photos; the flashlight of the camera made it appear lighter than it really is. I am delighted.
Thanks again (I'll leave my feedback on Amazon, of course)

A Selection of Antique Items
"The furniture has been delivered. It is wonderful! Everything is in excellent condition, and beautiful. It was a risk to order sight unseen from the internet, but we feel very pleased with all of it. Each piece was as advertised, well packed, clean and complete and well polished. We feel that each item makes a great addition to our home.
The two delivery guys were excellent. They did a great job unloading and placing each piece where it belonged...
...Altogether we are extremely satisfied. You have been very professional to work with, as well as most patient and responsive. Thank you so much! We can highly recommend you.
It has been a great pleasure. Thank you again,,

Antique Refectory Table, Arts & Crafts Dining c.1900
"The table was successfully delivered on Friday, and I’m so very grateful for your service and the service of others at London Fine Ltd.
A special thanks to the person/s who prepared it for shipping. With the multiple wrapping - interior & exterior - it was the closest I’ll ever come to opening a sarcophagus, and was equally as thrilling.
I was able to track the shipping process easily through DHL, which I appreciated. And though I live in an out-of-the-way place, the delivery guy had no trouble finding where I live.
Also, though the table was beautiful in the photos on your website, I was unprepared for how beautiful it was up close, and could not have imagined how perfectly it fits into this studio where I live.
I am very thankful for that first email you wrote which outlined the process in its entirety; otherwise I would never have considered doing something that at the outset seemed unfeasible, crazy, and cost prohibitive. I appreciated the way you laid it out; as you said, you all specialize in customer service. I could not be more pleased.
Thank you very much, and all the best to you and the other top-notch folks at London Fine. "
K.T. CA, U.S.A.

Mr. C.L. Berlin, Germany
Antique Dual Reading Table, English c.1870
"...The table arrived late on Thursday afternoon in perfect order. I was impressed by the timely delivery and the quality of the packing! Domestic shipping in the U.S. can be a nightmare of bad packing and shipping routes where crates are passed on to cheap, local, 3rd party movers with little experience. I cannot tell you the number of problems and damaged goods I've endured. The problem is so rife that when shipping I always consider the cost of repair in contemplating a purchase.
You can understand I was afraid about international shipping. What a pleasant surprise to find my table not only arrived by a professional shipper within 8 days of the purchase, but the quality of the packing was such that the antique table survived over a 5,000 mile journey without a scratch (still smelling of polish) and looking like it just stepped off the show room floor.
I wanted you to know I appreciate your professionalism, and have enjoyed doing business with your firm."
Mr. M.W. Menlo Park, U.S.A.
Georgian Corner Cupboard, c.1780
"...The cupboard has arrived in "New London" Connecticut USA. It looks great !! I am very pleased. Thank you for your fine service. Please give my gratitude to the freight packaging team. A large fragile antique glass vase from the best museum in world would have survived the trip. Nice work!"
Mr. T.R. Connecticut, U.S.A.
