D.W. Sherwood Antiques Ltd.
Mr. and Mrs. Sherwood carry on a family business which has been established for 50 years – though the premises in Rushden have only been operable for 20 years.
The emphasis has always been on items of local interest in both counties. They have always specialised in early English drinking glasses, early prints, books and maps and carry an extensive collection of pillow lace items such as maids, winders, pillows and over 40,000 bobbins. They also carry a good selection of basket fire grates, old and new. In fact, they do their best to cover every aspect of the trade. Unfortunately their stock is not always on display so those customers that do not know them are advised to enquire regarding items of particular interest.
D. W. Sherwood are open 5 days a week from 10.30 – 6.00 and closed all day Thursday and Sunday.
