Biggs Antiques

Dealing antique furniture is not a new concept for the Stamp family since ancestral members ran the antiques specialist Biggs of Maidenhead, established in 1866 - the extensive archives of which are now maintained by Brights of Nettlebed.

The archives, and the majority of antiques that pass through our showrooms today, are inspiration for designs of our hand-made reproduction furniture.

All genuine antiques on offer have been hand-picked and faithfully restored, where appropriate, to a high standard. Photographs of the actual pieces are displayed and a condition report is available on request. Any item of antique furniture can be viewed in situ with our renowned home approval service.

Edward T. Biggs & Son was established in 1866 with premises in Maidenhead, which were visited by Queen Mary in 1930. Charles Gordon Biggs worked at the antique silver dealers William Bruford in Exeter and was a leading authority of antique silver, as well as being a member of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and Prime Warden of the Company for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. After becoming managing director at Wlliam Brurford and WWII ending, Charles Biggs left Bruford's to become managing director at his family firm E.T. Biggs.  Upon his death in 1957, the firm continued under the directorship of Roy Stamp and the trading name changed to Biggs of Maidenhead. Biggs remained a highly reputable and reknowned firm in the antiques trade with membership of the British Antique Dealers Accociation.
