Dear Kathi

Just a quick note to say that the chairs arrived this afternoon. Exceptionally
nice they are too. I am really delighted with the quality of the workmanship
and the comfort, especially of the William IV library chair.

Thank you for all of your help.


Hi Kathi

I just wanted to write and say how delighted I am with the desk.
H&H did a great job on the delivery yesterday and it’s sitting in my newly refurbished study looking very smart.

Thank you very much indeed.
Best wishes


Hello Gavin

What a beauty!!

Thank you very very much.

It's exactly as you said. And then some.
I know my hub will love it.

Reviews from website:

The items for sale were nice and clearly displayed,which I feel is crucial when buying online.
We purchased a chair with reeded legs that was a perfect match for our desk. The chair was in excellent condition and was delivered by their preferred haulier arriving bubble wrapped
I thought Burrells where professional and friendly. The great condition of their items must speak loudly of their skill in refurbishing old furniture

To anyone who is concerned about using this wonderful company.....please don't be worried!
We bought two desks, one a lovely French and another Mahogany table desk. This company was personable, helpful and sent the desks to us in Denver with NO complications. They followed up to make sure we were happy and also provided cups under the desk to make sure they were of the optimal height.
We were hesitant buying items so expensive on line, but can honestly say our high expectations were exceeded!

Thank you to everyone at Burrells.....and please be sure to use us as a reference in the future.

Sincerely, Susan Strunner

We have found Burrells Antique Desks to be nothing but helpful and professional. We bought a library table and had it shipped to Australia, and the process was very straight forward due to the helpfulness of the staff at Burrells. I do highly recommend them, and I would also be interested in shopping with them again if a need for another beautiful antique piece was required. They do have some lovely stock to chose from.

We have finally been able to unwrap the two desks provided by your fabulous company. 

Please know that the quality of the items far exceeded our expectations.
Dealing with you from the very beginning was a complete pleasure and we are so excited by the contribution to the decoration of our Denver Tudor home.

Thank you again for all you did to make this happen and know that we are fully satisfied with this exceptional purchase!

Hi Kathi

The table arrived on Monday and is lovely.

They had removed it from the crate when they delivered it in the van so I was nervous as I tend to like to remove them from crates myself as this process alone can be risky without care from labourers, but the under-wrapping from so good by Simon Hall it looked like it could take a few knocks without issue.

It does not appear to have any damage or veneer issues, which were my concerns when hearing it was stored in a warehouse.

All well received thank you

Warm Regards

Hi Kathi,

The desk has arrived here in New Zealand!

It really is a nice piece and looks great in our library/study.
I’ll send you a photo or two when I get a chance.

I particularly like the leg room it gives by not having a middle drawer. Thanks very much – it’s been a pleasure dealing with you.

Kind regards,

Ross Christoffersen

Greetings Kathi,

Please forgive me for the delay in following up with you, and too acknowledging the safe receipt of the desk. I have been pretty much half way around the world since its arrival, so am in a desperate stage of catch up with correspondence.

Anyway, as you can see it has arrived safe and sound……..and we absolutely love it!! What a magnificent piece and thanks so much again for the discount and all your efforts in ensuring a safe delivery.

As promised, I have taken a couple of pictures with my phone so I could e-mail them to you. Hopefully you will agree that we have an ideal home for it, one being the desk itself, the other the view we see while seated at it!

Thanks again and of course we will keep current with your website and inventory in the hope there will be other opportunities which we can discover with you. In the meantime, we wish you the very best,

Hi Gavin

I thought I would drop you a quick line to say how pleased I am with it!

It's always difficult to judge colour correctly from a photograph on a computer screen so there was a certain element of trepidation when I agreed to buy it without seeing it!

I needn't have worried and it fits in perfectly.

Once again thank you

Kind regards

Mark Taylor, London

Hi Kathi,

I wanted to let you know that the furniture has arrrived, safe and sound. It looks beautiful, and we are very happy with it.

The chirs are very sturdy, much more substantial than I expected, which is great.

Thank you so much.

Michael Emerson, Doha, Qatar

Dear Kathi,

I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with the desk.

Everybody who visits our home compliments and appreciates the desk.

I absolutely love it and know that it will remain in our family for many, many years to come.

I am not the least bit offended by your request and would be more than happy to unequivocally endorse your company.

I wish all of my business dealings were equally satisfactory!!

Please provide your client my email address and I would be very happy to respond to any inquiries they have.

All the best.

John F. Scruggs. Alexandria, VA

Dear Kathi

I am happy to say that you delivered the desk, on time, it was as exactly as described, you stuck to the price on the Selling antiques web-site even though this was wrong (lower than the listed price) and I would be happy to buy from you again.

Best wishes,


Sir Gregory Winter, Master of Trinity College Cambridge

Dear Burrells Desks,

Just a note to let you all know that the fabulous French desk has been un-crated and set up in my make-shift study while we continue work on the old study.

It is an amazing piece of furniture and is everything your web-site said it was. The packing job was as exquisite as the desk - we almost hated to disturb it. Not a single scratch or dent in the contents.

Thanks so much to all at Burrell’s and Simon Hall who helped make this a wonderful snowy day in Delaware.

I could almost care about shovelling the walks now that I have this new treasure.

With greatest appreciation.

Gavin and Kathi,

Good morning.

The desk arrived safely this morning and it is gorgeous.

Sue and I love it and we are very excited to display it in our home.

Simon Hall did an awesome job with the crating and packaging.

Please let us know if you ever need a testimonial for your service and the quality of your antiques.

We are very pleased with this transaction.

Thanks for all of your help.

Lynn and Sue

Dear Kathi and Gavin,

Thank you so much for your kind hospitality when we stopped by to purchase our partner desk.

We have now returned to Norway and it is in beautiful shape, still packaged and waiting to be placed in our office.

We so enjoyed visiting....You have a lovely home!
Looking forward to visiting you again soon.

As Ever,

Christine and Bill Bergesen.

It is absolutely beautiful.

It fits in the study perfectly.

Dear Kathi and Gavin,

May I say a thank you on behalf of Ron and myself for the welcome and patience that you offered us when we visited you.

It made decision making that bit easier.

Dear Kathi

The box arrived this morning, very carefully packed & in great condition. I'm really happy with it!

Thank you for your excellent service.


Dear Kathi,

The delivery went smooth. I was pleased with how the table was crated. No damage. :)

The table is lovely. It's a great piece in my library.

I will definitely check out Burrell's selection for the next project.
