Windsor House Antiques

Windsor House Antiques.
Established in Leeds, Yorkshire in 1957 by our chairman D Kevin Smith, Windsor House Antiques has grown from a small one-man operation into a globally recognised company. In 1999 it was decided to relocate the showrooms to London in order to attract more overseas clientele but still keeping warehousing and the core of the workshops in Leeds. In 1999 an opportunity arose to purchase a second company, Berengar Antiques, operating from significant premises in Northamptonshire.

19th Century Toleware egg boiler and cup container, the oval boiler with a carrier for six eggs.

In the collectibles and antique industry, Toleware refers to kitchen-related objects created from metal, typically tin or thin steel, and are often in decorative styles such as Arts and Crafts and Pennsylvania Dutch. Decorative painting on these items is common but not necessary. This style of decorative art spread from Europe (where it was referred to as Japanning) to the United States in the 18th century,and was popular in US kitchens in the 18th and 19th centuries. 

Toleware refers to items and objets made of tin that have been japanned or lacquered, and adorned with a picture or design. Developing in the early 18th century, this technique spread across Europe and America, and flourished until the end of the 19th century. Also known as tôle peinte (French for “painted sheet iron”), painted tin, or simply tole, the technique was applied to a variety of household things - from humble utilitarian household goods to decorative fixtures - and in a range of styles.
