This was a large two-storied late Victorian mansion in good order.
The owners wanted us to source a large antique wall clock and also to replace inappropriate wallpaper frieze in the main bedroom.
The Authentic Age located a Vienna Regulator appropriate to the period; presented a choice of suitable hand-blocked wallpaper frieze designs; and recommended a skilled paperhanger.
The owners were pleased to avoid the time involved in both researching the correct items for the period and searching for quality items and suppliers.
