About the Dorking Desk Shop
Welcome. My name is Glyn Elias
I am the Director of G.B.Elias Antiques Limited, trading as The Dorking Desk Shop and Elias Antiques of Dorking
The business was started in 1969 by my elder brother Jan, who began buying and restoring antique furniture in the garden shed of the family home. He went on to buy the workshops and showrooms in Dorking and the business has continued to develop since then.
The Dorking Desk Shop has been established for over 40 years in the historic market town of Dorking, where we are part of a community of antique shops specialising in all aspects of collecting antiques. In our showrooms, spread over 8,000 square feet, (2,400 sq metres) we offer an extensive selection of all types of writing furniture: from child's desks to executive partners desks, from bureaux to secretaires and we feel confident that we can supply or source any item you require.
Next door at Elias Antiques of Dorking we are able to offer an extensive selection of all other types of antiques furniture as well as a superb collection of barometers, barographs, telescopes and other optical and scientific items. There is also a huge selection of sporting memorabilia and desk top items.
Stoneycroft Farm are our showrooms, out of town, on the beautiful slopes of Boxhill, where we have the room to display our larger items such as Bookcases, Dining tables and Wardrobes.
We pride ourselves in our specialist knowledge, the result of over 40 years' experience in the field and in the intimate knowledge of the pieces offered for sale and their history: they have all been personally chosen and expertly restored in our own workshops.
The Dorking Desk Shop benefits from a team of skilled and specialised craftspeople and we are able to offer the following services to our customers:
