Butler’s Antiques, the trading name of Robin Butler, is the world’s foremost dealership in antique wine accessories.  With partner Hugh Johnson, the doyen of wine writers and himself another longstanding expert in the subject, we are able to source and offer an enormous selection of fine and rare objects used in the storing, serving and drinking of wine.  Not only that, but we guarantee everything we sell to be what we say it is.

We supply those who want practical accessories to enhance their enjoyment of wine, as much as those who collect antiques, so these two criteria are to the fore in the careful selection of what we offer.   

To keep our prices highly competitive and offer a personal service, we do not have a shop, and staff; we deal entirely from our website here in rural England.  We pack and send parcels securely all over the world and look forward to hearing how we can help you.  Simply send an e.mail to info@butlersantiques.com, or call us on 0(44)7831 194 997 and we will do our very best to be of service.
