From all of us at Fox Country Furniture, we would like to extend our warmest best wishes to all our customers, past present and future.
The future is looking bright for us in 2015. We are working as a small, dedicated team, unchanged for nearly 8 years, and the prospect of a clear road ahead, with no major operations planned, feels very good. As many of you will know last year I had a triple heart bypass in April. I am now fully over that and able to work as normal, with renewed energy. So now is a very good time to call us before the order rush starts in the next 6-8 weeks. Lead time is currently relatively low at around 4 months.
The showroom, Longnor Craft Centre, opens Friday – Sunday 10am to 5pm until mid February (school half term) then will be open every day through Christmas Eve. The workshop will be open weekdays 8am to 5pm, weekend appointments normally available by arrangement. Tel – 01298 84467.

For many years I have wanted to make a long case clock. Now, 7 years after buying the movement, I have finally completed my first one, which is for my wife’s 50th birthday. The movement is a German Hermle model with a Westminster chime and moon phase dial. The case is made from cherry with a medium stain. I have modelled this one on the building that houses our showroom, Longnor Market Hall.
I am planning to put one in the showroom and make them as bespoke pieces incorporating features as customers wish. As a guide price this would cost around £5,000. Dimensions are 81″ x 15″ x 11″.
Please contact me if you are interested and would like to know more or discuss a possible commission.

We have just taken in a preloved immaculate Victorian oak dining set, which we made in 2007. The table is 48” x 30” x 29” high with straight legs, and has 4 No 64 chairs with British Green leather seat pads to complete the set. The current cost of a new set like this would be £1950. Our price for this set is £1200. It is very rare for us to be able to offer pre-owned furniture and it goes quickly, so please don’t delay if you are interested.
As ever we can deliver anywhere in Britain if required.
