MURANO GLASS

MURANO GLASS

Venetian Glass has been made for over 1500 years on the Venetian Island of Murano, and so it is most famously known as Murano Glass.   This became Europe’s elite glassmaking centre in the 15th and 16th centuries.

 It is famous for vases, chandeliers and mirrors and the multi-coloured glass called “millefiori” is extremely beautiful. (This word is a combination of the Italian words “mille” (thousand) and “fiori” (flowers).  Millefiori paperweights are very eye-catching because of the many colours appearing in them and they make a perfect gift also popular as a gift idea is the classic animal figures.  In our cabinets at The Old Mill we have a vast selection to choose from at very affordable prices starting from £25.

Our aim at The Old Mill is to keep you updated on all that is happening here, from the arrival of new stocks of furniture, jewellery and collectables to telling you all the latest news.  

We have more than 40 dealers on site and even more new ones moving in over the next few weeks, with the most recent one being from France and he will have a stock of French furniture which is very pretty and popular with all our customers. There are more dealers trading here now than at any other time since we opened in 1996.

Another recent dealer is located on the second floor and he has an extremely wide range of beautiful antique furniture, paintings and marble statues all at very affordable prices. In fact with the number of stallholders we now have the stock we hold is an eclectic mix of antique, vintage and modern styles and will suit all tastes.

Under the heading “SHOWROOM” on the Home Page you will see many items of stock for sale and this will be updated on a regular basis with details of stock and sale price.   Should you find any items to be of special interest you can e-mail us at info@oldmillantiques.co.uk, or phone on 01746 768778 and our knowledgeable and helpful staff will always be on hand to advise you.  

It has been an exciting time for us since the closure of the Auction Rooms last October, as this has given us much more time to concentrate on the Antiques Centre. We have been busy painting, decorating, refurbishing and expanding all of the 4 floors in our building, which is now looking bright and inviting for you to come and look around.  

The Antiques Centre is situated in the Low Town area of Bridgnorth adjacent to the banks of the river Severn and just a few hundred yards from the quayside.

So, why not pay The Old Mill a visit and at the same time spend a day in Bridgnorth exploring this lovely old market town.

We have our own award-winning restaurant on site on the first floor (Charlie’s at The Old Mill)  where you can have a light snack, enjoy a lazy lunch or take tea and cakes in the afternoon to round off your visit.

We hope to see you at The Old Mill very soon…………..
