Over the past 45 yeas Mahogany by Hand has produced more than 2000 different designs, many of which are exact copies of original antique pieces produced in England and France during the 18th and 19th centuries. Each piece is painstakingly replicated just as the original. Our founder has an antique background and traveled Europe extensively procuring genuine antique furniture for the antique market in Australia. The knowledge of these original antiques, their construction and how they were hand made, has been transposed into the reproduction mahogany furniture we produce today.Many antique dealers throughout the world, in America, Italy, England, Germany, Japan and other countries, have purchased our designs to sell alongside the original antiques they offer their clients. This alone stands testament to our quality and precision in replicating originals.
We have produced various outstanding replicas of very famous and well documented antique pieces. For example, the “Nicholas Heurteau chair”, originally made for Marie Antoinette’s boudoir in the Palace of Versailles and still there today! A copy of Thomas Chippendale’s “Heyington Desk”, one of only two surviving pieces that can be proven to have emanated from his famous workshop. A copy of the “Newport Bureau Bookcase” now in the J. Paul Getty Museum in USA, a copy of the famous “Resolute Desk” that Queen Victoria had made from the mahogany interior of her Royal vessel of the same name, and then presented to the president of America.

Where has it all gone!?
I think you will agree me that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find quality furniture anywhere one goes, Melbourne Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, it is the same story. I have lost count how many people tell me that “It is the same old low quality stuff everywhere I go! Where has all the quality furniture gone?”
