Run by Joanna Proops for many years, Antique Textiles and Lighting is one of most respected antique shops in Bath due to the quality of the stock and the specialist knowledge of the owner. The shop won the British Antiques and Collectables Award for best Antiques,Textiles and Lighting Shop in the UK, and is a "must visit" for those who appreciate the fine workmanship associated with period textiles and lighting.
Spring will soon be here, it is a great time for new starts. Why not do something different and buy yourself a real antique? We have many wonderful period fabrics which you could use to create a truly unique style for your home. We also have many smaller items such as wall and table lights. We always have many of these in stock, and we will be happy to make some suggestions. All items on sale are original antiques, the shop does not sell reproductions.
The shop features period textiles, fans, samplers and associated items from the 17th Century, through to the early 20th. A vast range of fine textiles and antique lace for any collector, interior designer or home-maker. Also one of the largest collections of period paisley shawls outside London, together with quilts (including a big collection of 'crazy' quilts), fine tapestries and a comprehensive array of beaded bags and other beadwork items.
Period lighting including standard, wall and table lights, candle holders and the display of small to large chandeliers create a backcloth to the shop. All lighting is professionally rewired and restored to modern safety standards and ready for immediate installation.
We do not do mail order.
