The London Antiques Company breathes life and luxury into objects of desire from a bygone age. Artistic and attentive in their approach, the team restore Victorian and Edwardian Antique Safes, decadently converting them into cigar humidors and cocktail bars – the ultimate storage solution for fine wines, tobaccos and their accessories.

Hand-crafted humidors are lined with cedar and fitted with specially selected humidifiers and hygrometers to maintain cigars in optimum condition. Cocktail bars are customized to include accessory drawers, carousels, serving trays and compartments to hold decanters, bottles and smokers’ requisites.Cigar Humidor

The safes date from the 19th and early 20th centuries and are sourced in the Far East, their origins distinguished by ornamental name plates, escutcheons (keyhole shields), symbols, coats of arms and engraved insignia all of which remain intact. All are forged in solid steel and are both theft and fire-proof. The exteriors have been painted in trompe l’oeil finish to emulate the grains of exotic woods. For some, British soil is a familiar resting place. Others herald from Austria, France, Japan and Germany. Wendy Salisbury, the company’s creative director, whose expertise at turning unusual boxes into humidors which are sold by the likes of Asprey, Harrods and Dunhill, believes “It’s dutiful to restore them in London. It’s the birthplace of superior workmanship, home to the great auction houses of Christie’s and Sotheby’s and abundant with art dealers, world-renowned antique fairs and markets.” 

An enterprise of opulence from every angle, the team includes professional craftsmen and cabinet makers, a structural surveyor enlisted to examine the load bearing tolerance of the floors of potential buyers and Momart, the official removal company of London’s art galleries to ensure the safest of deliveries.

The London Antiques Company pride themselves on giving these objects of romance and history a new role in modern society, rightfully transforming them into treasure themselves.
