We specialise in the restoration of antique and vintage boxes, with a modern and contemporary twist, giving them new life!
We don’t use harsh chemicals, just traditional methods.
The insides are carefully restored where necessary, brass hinges removed and polished, old locks cleaned and keys made, if possible (new locks with keys - although we always try and keep everything original), I’m not giving too much away here! 99% of our boxes leave with a working lock and key!
The insides are lined with printed marbled papers, usually with a removable tray so there is space for storage.
Here in our workshop in S.E. Cornwall not only do we restore antique and vintage boxes, we give them a completely new life so you can cherish them for years to come.
Each box is given a new lease of life, writing slopes that are too badly damaged to fully restore, antique sewing boxes that need some TLC or vintage cutlery boxes that are no longer in use.
Have a look through our shop and choose from our selection of carefully restored vintage and antique boxes.
Their uses are many – keepsakes, office storage (for USBs, headphones, pens, clips, etc.), collections of jewellery/cufflinks/watches, artist boxes or simply as a piece of home furniture.
Everyone loves old boxes, especially if it is a family heirloom and has a sentimental attachment, this way it can be admired, used and re-loved, plus giving the box another 100 years!

In our restorations, we use a vivid selection of marbled paper for brightening up the interior of the boxes, but they are perfect for a wide range of other projects, too!
We are happy to restore your family heirloom, a box that you have bought and thought “one day I’ll do something with this box” and never got around to it!
