Here is what our customers have to say....
Just wanted to let you know that Rick Ships delivered the armoire last evening. They were great, as always--showed up right on schedule and were very nice/ easy to work with. They only encountered one minor problem with re-assembly--one of the pegs at the top of the side panel had somehow gotten pushed downward, and had splintered the wood in a small spot in the interior top corner. But they were able to hammer the peg upward, and they glued and clamped the small splintered spot. So everything is fine.
The armoire is lovely. It fit my space perfectly, thanks to your having been so patient/ detailed with all the measurements. The inside of the armoire was so pristine that I have already transferred all my bed linens. I was expecting to have to upholster the interior, but can see that it is unnecessary. I am amazed at how much the armoire holds--just what I needed!
Now I need to give it a cleanup to remove the fingerprints due to handling. I have the Howard's Restore A Finish (dark walnut) that you recommended. I remember you also mentioned a citrus oil product. Can you kindly advise which one (or maybe both?) to use?
Thanks so much for all your attention to detail, and for the great customer service. It truly made all the difference! I will keep an eye on your site for more French treasures!

I just wanted to let you know that my daughter received her dining room table and chairs this evening! She loves them!!! They were exactly as you described, very high quality! The table is ornate with beautiful carvings, yet very sturdy. My son in law was impressed with the detailed carvings on the chairs as well as the condition of the needle point cushions! They will look beautiful in their dining room! Thank you for taking the time to help me with this order and for answering my questions! Your website has become a favorite of mine!

Another great delivery by RickShips! Another antique dealer with integrity added to my "great" list! Ray...the chairs are everything you promised...really just beautiful and solid like you said. Caroline and April...another great experience with Michael and a new gentleman who was not here before... is it James? Ya know it's not that I've not had good experiences with delivery people from here in my native Northeast...One to one, people everywhere in the US are more alike than we often realize... but there's just somethin' about people from down south. It's like steppin' back in time to the 50's. Politeness at every turn...even with the grueling traffic when you get near New York City...that these guys go through before they get here.
Ray, just wanted you to know the buffet arrived this am at 7:30 as scheduled as per RickShips. It is beautiful and is exactly what I wanted. I have to thank you for being a professional and ethical businessman in this entire process. Everything you arranged went like clockwork. I could not be any more satisfied than I am with the product, the handling, and the shipping arrangements you set up for me. Thank you so very much. Please feel free to use me as a reference in your business . I can promise that anything I would say would be all positive and helpful.
Sincerely, A very satisfied customer,

My French bookcase arrived today. It is truly beautiful and in wonderful condition. Thank you so very much! - Becky
We had excellent communication with Mr. Ray during our transaction. The antique chairs were even prettier than he described, and he took great care in the delivery process, as promised. Thank you! Jacki N -Lake Charles, LA
This was my first experience with purchasing a more expensive item on ebay. I was so pleased with the interaction between the seller and myself. The service was outstanding. They treated me like family. Beautiful furniture and wonderful customer service! Lynda B
I have never ordered a piece of furniture sight unseen prior to the lovely French Hutch from the French and Antiques website. When I saw the pictures online I knew I was about to make a first step and order. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the piece and with the ease of purchase. Paypal accomplished the payment. The delivery was arranged by phone and set up was made by 2 gentlemen on a day that was convenient for my schedule. Fabulous, looks just as your photographs represented. I feel as though I have a little piece of France right here all without leaving the comfort of my home!!
Thank You for the Wonderful French Hutch,
"I first purchased a gorgeous armoire from French and English Antiques in 2009 and have been working with them every since to acquire beautiful furniture pieces for my home. Ray, the owner of French and English Antiques, has always been extremely easy to work with and the pieces are always as described. Every aspect from purchase to delivery is handled with the utmost care and attention to detail. I have and will continue to recommend French and English Antiques to anyone I know that is looking for quality antique furniture."

Whenever it is time to purchase another piece of furniture for our house, the first website we visit is French and English Antiques. We can always find something that we want. The items we have purchased were as described and there is never a problem with shipping. Most importantly Ray is a pleasure to do business with.

I received the night stand the other day and have been meaning to drop you a note. It is perfect. It is even nicer than the pictures J Thanks very much for everything!
We absolutely LOVE our French buffet we bought from you! It has received lots of great compliments, as have you from us!
Now I'd like to purchase the pretty display cabinet from you, if possible. Could you let me know what the freight, or UPS would cost?
Thanks so much! I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving week!
