The weight and unique nature of our items require us to manually calculate shipping for each individual order and that can not be done via this website. Therefore when you submit your order after reading this message, please be aware that we we will contact you via email to discuss and calculate actual shipping costs.
In the meantime your shopping cart will show a $1 shipping fee but that is a nominal amount so that we can accept your order. When we have agreed by correspondence on the shipping costs we will add those costs to your order and process payment.
If you would like us to provide a custom shipping quote before you submit payment, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or (02) 62380906.
Founded in 1643, Cire Trudon is the oldest wax-producing factory worldwide. It was the provider of the royal court of Louis XIV, as well as most of the great churches of France.
Cire Trudon had become the biggest wax-producing factory in the French Kingdom during the 17th and 18th century. In 1762, in his encyclopaedia The art of the wax producer, engineer Duhamel du Monceau, praises the skills of the Trudons and gives the manufacture as an example. Such a level of quality earned Charles Trudon the appointment by King Louis XIV as Count Trudon des Ormes.
Cire Trudon represents time-honored skills. Today the former Royal Wax Manufacturer continues to make candles in France with extreme care. Discover the world and history of Cire Trudon.
Beautiful spring is well and truly here. Why not splash out on a gorgeous authentic urn or marble topped garden table with a carved sandstone base. You will be blissfully secure in the knowledge you won't find another one like yours.....anywhere. A unique and elegant piece straight out of an English garden and brought all the way to sunny Australia.
The garden, recently sold by us, was designed and the pieces installed by Manon.
Shopping in a purposeful way starts with knowing what your personal style is and what your needs are. Fashions move in cycles, so don’t let current trends dictate your taste. If you buy something you love, it will hold your interest and it will last.
Try where possible, to steer away from what is currently 'in' because that can go 'out' very quickly and what you think is an up-to-date and on-trend style is quickly pigeonholed into a particular fashion era.
One of the more gauche is the current insistence in using what look like salad bowls as bathroom benchtop basins. Totally impractical and simply not clever.
Stick with the classics, the things you love and are useful but are also beautiful to look at, and not only will it look satisfyingly good, it will save you a load of money in the long run.
We just know that someone is itching to relocate to the rural village of Bungendore just outside Australia's Capital City, Canberra, and where Manon is located.
Built in 1885, this quintessential Australian building has all the character typical of historic properties but with the added bonus of a spacious contemporary addition that is entirely understated elegance.
Some of our stunning antique mirrors are featured as well as one of our gorgeous 19th century urns, which is positioned in the garden - and doesn't it all look just fabulous.
And now that the weather in Australia is cooling as we head from Autumn to Winter, it is the perfect time to consider engaging a landscape architect or designer to review and restyle your outdoor living rooms.
The gardens we cater to are well considered and well designed with attention to detail. Elegance is always a prerequisite and the addition to the garden, of a century old piece, adds refined grace and dignified propriety to any garden, large or small.
Unlike the UK, in Australia, we have long, hot summer Christmases which can be uncomfortably warm. So this year, we decided to head to the greener and cooler fields of England.....and do a bit of shopping.
There are places that you just know you are going to find agreeable - even before you get there and the Charlotte Street Hotel in London, looked to be one such place.
