Customer Testimonials

Subject:  Re. Statues

Hi Jenny!

This is Fr. Tim again in Colbert, Washington....  I am SO pleased with the statues---they are spectacular in our space, and I am so grateful for your help and the quality of service!  Now, of course, I need to find a different crucifix for our space.... I am wondering if the crucifix at the bottom of your first page that is 60" tall was a companion piece to the two statues, or if it is from a different chapel....  Also, given the quality of the statues, I am wondering about the origins of that crucifix...

Thank you for your help!  I also would be happy to offer some kind of testimonial if you would like.... I have already recommended your website to two priests in our diocese who are looking for items for their parishes...

Subject.  Re:  Shipment to Finland

Hi Jenny and Lawrence

Yes, i got everything last friday- afternoon.

I had 3 my friends here to help me. The biggest section fit very well in staircase , because i had 3 helpers.

We got it inside quite fast.

I'm very happy now. Reredos is absolutely magnificent and beautiful !!

The chair and the candlesticks are also awesome !!

You have packed everything very carefully, and i made about 9-10 large garbage bags full of packing- material.

I have hoovering the reredos holes and wiped all dust away from the frontside.
I must add moore posidrive screws and i have to add also one long wood- board to make the reredos really strong.

I also noticed, that there was 2 old stamps behind the canvas-print.
If i remember right, there was something like this: Black school, London and some address???

I don't know, are they reredos ex- owners or something else ?

Anyway, it has been a long process, and i am happy and now i'm thanking you both.

I will contact you later if i want to buy something moore.

Thank you both, and GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY !!

kind regards, marko

Subject:  Re. Lectern



You had arranged everything perfectly.  I received a call on my mobile Wednesday evening, checking if I was home.  Delivery followed within 1,5 to 2 hours (by a Polish truckdriver who only spoke Polish but he showed the delivery paper with the address of Church Antiques as well as my name &  address and I showed him my ID so he knew he had the right person in front of him.  He hauled it out of his truck, I signed off and then took it to my apartment where it now stands as an eyecatcher.

So far only my friend has seen it and she had the expected wow-reaction.


Here are 2 pics that will give you an idea of what triggered that wow.


Thanks again Jenny & kind regards

The Benediction candlestick arrived this morning and I have just taken it to church.  The Parish Priest is absolutely delighted with it and we are (obviously) going to have it professionally cleaned and polished.  Thank you for packing it so well.  Our priest asked me if you knew anything of the history of this candlestick such as which church it originally came from.  If you know anything about it we would love to hear about it.
