About

Georgian Antiques, Edinburgh

The Georgian Antiques warehouse

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 foreven 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!

The pictures on the web did not do justice to the cabinet.

I am really pleased to have acquired this cabinet – it is excellent. The quality is very good, solid wood and weight. The bevelled glass adds a completely different but really nice feature and adds character to the piece.

The delivery was also in time. So, overall, I am a very happy bunny, please pass on my thanks
