Shipping should be as simple as possible.
All prices are inclusive of packing and shipping to Mainland UK destinations. Please allow approximately 7-10 working days for delivery to the UK. If you need an item sent to a destination outside the UK, please get in touch with us for a quote. We aim to ship items, fully insured up to the price paid, at affordable and competitive rates.
With the exception of books, playing cards and catalogues (which are sent using Royal Mail First Class post and Airmail), all items are sent using a tried and tested specialist fine art shipper, Focus Packing
. We have been using Focus for many years now: they have a track record in the careful shipment of antiques and fine art, including chess sets- for which they have a specialist reputation. They will also handle all the necessary paperwork (including CITES export licence applications) for the export of antique ivory to non EU countries.
All items over the price of £50 are sent with tracked and recorded delivery. All items will be carefully packed by Focus Packing before sending. Chess set pieces are individually wrapped.
