About Us

Antique Specialists

At Brown’s Antiques we specialise in antique snooker tables, pool and billiards tables, and snooker accessories.  We also sell antique furniture and vintage items. We love what we do and think you will too. 

Owner Mark Brown has gained over 40 years’ experience as a French polisher and antique furniture restorer, both in the UK and abroad. As a well respected restorer, he is often asked for advice. BBC news consulted Mark when they needed information on the traditional use of shellac. Read the BBC article on Shellac here. 

Mark works with a small team of skilled craftsmen to carefully restore antique snooker, pool and billiards tables to an exceptionally high standard. The same level of care is taken with antique snooker and billiards accessories, and antique furniture.  Our attention to detail sets us apart from others. We are proud of our high levels of customer service.

Restoration

All restoration is carefully carried out by hand. We sympathetically restore each piece, using traditional French polishing techniques. In addition we use natural products, and the best quality materials, and we never spray finish. We will only replace parts if absolutely necessary. For more details, please see our restoration pages. We use the same level of care on our stock items, and customers’ own items that we restore.

Items in stock

We are antiques enthusiasts, and don’t stock new or modern items. We have many years’ experience dealing in antique furniture and antique snooker tables, and keep our overheads as low as possible, in order to keep our prices competitive.

Snooker and Billiards: We stock a range of antique snooker, pool and billiards tables.  Sizes range from 6ft to full size and include antique snooker dining tables and rollover snooker tables. We stock billiards accessories such as scoreboards and cue stands. You can read more about our antique snooker tables, and the restoration process here: Our antique snooker tables.

Antique furniture: Stock includes antique dining tables, dining chairs, storage furniture, and vintage and decorative items. 

 

Award Winning

Brown’s Antiques is an environmentally friendly company, and we have won several awards in recognition of this. We were delighted to be chosen by Theo Paphitis as a Small Business Sunday winner.  Read more about all our awards here.

Our Customers

We sell to the general public and interior designers. We provide antique snooker tables and furniture for film productions, and retail display. We are passionate about what we do and involve the customer in every stage of the restoration process. See what our customers are saying here: Brown’s Antiques Testimonials.

Sustainability

We care about the environment. We’ve been talking about the Green credentials of antique furniture for years! By buying antique furniture instead of new, you will be helping future generations, as well as treating yourself to a unique piece of history.

As a business, we do all we can to reduce our carbon footprint. From using natural materials instead of harsh chemicals, to using local craftsmen rather than importing cheap components, we actively play our part in protecting the environment.

 The Antiques Are Green website has some interesting articles which discuss the carbon footprint of antique furniture versus buying new. Read more here: Antiques are Green.
