Anthony Short Antiques first opened an antiques gallery 21 years ago in Antwerp. I am following my father's footsteps, having been in the antiques trade for more than 50 years in Knokke-Zoute, Belgium.
In 2008, I decided to move with my family to Petworth in the UK and left my successful shop in Antwerp to start up a whole new adventure.
In June 2008 I started first dealing in antiques from our small premises in East Street, Petworth. Having looked for some time, I found a large showroom nearby the Market Square in Petworth, ideally suited to display my large stock of antique furniture and works of art.
It was now time to start another new challenge, as I have decided to open a shop in the heart of Bruges, Belgium. The new gallery is located in the centre of Bruges on the Burg, opposite the Town Hall and The Basilica of the Holy Blood. I still live and work in the UK and clients are welcome to view items by appointment.
I will continue to attend my usual antique fairs on the continent, the Art Nocturne Knocke Fair, Eurantica in Brussels and Antica in Namur to keep in contact with my loyal clientele. "It is thanks to them that I am where I am today!".
I hold a large and varied collection of 18th and 19th century quality antique furniture, featuring fine antique mahogany furniture of the Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods embracing designs by Chippendale, Sheraton and Hepplewhite, featuring fine walnut furniture of the Queen Anne period, English and Continental Oak and Country furniture, decorative antique objects, antique prints and antique silver.
Buy with confidence. Over two generations in the antiques trade we have built a reputation for dealing in quality antiques. With every purchase we provide a certificate with description to ensure our customers are satisfied with a genuine purchase.
All our items are genuine antiques which we buy specifically with a keen eye on contemporary trends to complement modern living and interior design.
We hold a much larger stock than is shown on this web site so please contact us if you are looking for anything in particular.

ANTHONY SHORT ANTIQUES
By Appointment, UK and Belgium,
ANTHONY SHORT ANTIQUES to confirm their own Terms and Conditions, but Distance Selling Regulations apply.
DC LTD ADVICE:
It is the individual Dealers responsibility to make themselves aware of what the Distance Selling Regulation rules contain; these regulations are open to change, may vary and are detailed, so you may wish to familiarise yourself with such via the many websites available to you on this subject.
Your contract of purchase is between the Client and the Seller, not the Decorative Collective Ltd, we are just the introductory agent. Your rights include, but are not limited to the below. You must check with each individual Seller what their own terms and conditions are and what their own purchase and returns policy include. The DC Ltd is not responsible for the description, condition or attribution of an item as we do not have sight of any item and do not have physical ownership of any item, but we do endeavour to only allow professional and experienced dealers onto our website. We do not collect payment or hold such unless specifically agreed prior to purchase and then only as Agent do we hold funds, which are held by the DC Ltd until both parties have confirmed such can be released. If such funds are held and an item is returned, release back to the client of such funds, will be subject to the Seller confirming the item has been returned according to their returns policy. Items are not released to the Buyer until the agreed payment is received by the DC Ltd. The DC Ltd is not responsible for any related bank charges, transfer fees, currency fluctuations or otherwise. For more details on this facility, please contact owner Jane Walton at [email protected]
You have the right to return items purchased via the internet up to 14 days following receipt of the item to the specified delivery address. If you collect an item in person or arrange your own delivery, then this term starts immediataely you or your carrier collects the item (this is to avoid your own carrier sitting on the item for a long time before delivering it).
WHAT WE RECOMMEND:
Always ask for an invoice from the Seller. On the invoice you should have the date of the item, any provence, full description, including any restoration or damage. It should state terms of payment and delivery and returns. It should also show the business name, business address, contact numbers, email address and VAT number if applicable.
You should ask for confirmation of your purchase by email so that you have written proof of the agreed price, any additional charges, eg delivery and if you are having the item delivered, ask how and who will be undertaking it and what the Sellers return policy is.
Ask for email confirmation of what your responsibilities are should you wish to return an item, including re-packing, how you must confirm your desire to return the item, eg email or by telephone and be clear on the Seller's return policy.
The prices indicated for items on this site are correct at the time the item is listed, barring any error by the Seller. However, the Euro and Dollar prices shown are for indication only and may vary as rates fluctuate and you may incur your own bank charges when making payment from abroad.
Some of our Dealers (Sellers) are based in Europe so you may need to qualify with them their specific purchase and returns policies. However Distance Selling Regulations apply througout Europe as far as the DC Ltd is aware.
Please do not be concerned about the above statements. They are there to help and protect both parties and should help to avoid any disputes by making things clear. The owner of this site, Jane Walton, is always happy to help and assist where possible and clients are very welcome to contact Jane should they need advice or assistance. Being a dealer herself for 16 years, she knows that most dealers are good, hardworking and professional people who understand the rules and how to be polite and helpful to clients at all times. They can help you obtain shipping or transport quotes for example. Never be worried about speaking to a Dealer and asking as many questions as you need to about an item, they wil be happy to help you. Please do remember though, that they will always be more receptive to clients who show them the same respect.
