About us

From collecting that first Art Deco cocktail set at the young age of 14,  Our Original Company Northern Lights was founded, specialising in Art Deco lighting and interiors.

On becoming full time dealers we have exhibited throughout the UK and Europe at Specialist Art Deco Fairs and Quality Antique Fairs.

Dealing for the past 40 years and with a combined 80 years of retail expertise we decided, upon the passing of our Mother in March 2017, a new venture was called for, and decided to open “The Calvie Gallery” in her memory and named it using her middle name “CALVIE”.

We endeavour to offer an eclectic mix of items to ensure our business gives customers a wide selection of items to view. We deal in beautiful and stylish period items with an emphasis on quality and design.

We specialise in selling original Art Deco dining suites, side tables, bedside cabinets by makers such as Epstein, Hille and Heal’s of London, as well as desks and various pieces of small furniture including wonderful pieces of Art Nouveau.

Our Gallery is ideally positioned next to historic Sherwood Forest and located in Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire where alongside original pieces of furniture and lighting we have a varied selection of Decorative Arts from the 20th century including glass, ceramics, metalware, clocks and also original ladies handbags and shoes.

We offer contemporary art works and abstract sculptures.

We believe that you should look at every piece on its own merit and that quality is not just about the name of the designer or manufacturer.

Collecting is about buying what you like and having the confidence to go with your instinct and mix styles and periods.

Most importantly it is about having fun and enjoying your purchases.

If you are looking for something in particular then we would love to help. Tell us what you are looking for – we never know what we are going to find on our travels!
