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.
With Christmas coming up, why not do something different and buy someone close to you a real antique? We have many smaller items such as wall and table lights and beadwork bags that would make a wonderful and unique gift. We always have many of these in stock, and we will be happy to make some suggestions if you are looking for an unusual present for someone special (or just looking to treat yourself). 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.
