Our testimonals

Restoration - Large Georgian english brass chandelier
On behalf of St Mary’s Church Wollaston in Northamptonshire, may I say how delighted we are with the service offered by G & P Cohn who have refurbished our Georgian chandelier and electrified it for us as a part of our Nave reordering project. The chandelier now looks absolutely stunning and is a testament to the company’s excellent workmanship. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

I can’t recommend this company enough. Charming, utterly trustworthy people with a deep knowledge of and affection for their subject. I’ve dealt with other Chandelier companies before and I can only say I wish I had found Peter and Ben first.

Restoration - Baccarat Chandelier
Our lovely Baccarat chandelier took a bit of a knock a while ago. Two arms, and various delicate parts got broken and the electrics stopped working. We were very sad as it is a much loved object.

After a long time searching for the right person to attempt repair Ben and his team from G & P Cohn Antiques rocked up.

They were fantastic! Lovely chaps who were a total pleasure to deal with. After a site visit we decided they should take it away and work their magic.

About 3 weeks later it returned. They did their best to find the exact parts to replace, but unfortunately a couple of the exact parts were unavailable, but this was very minor to us. The important arms were an exact match. They rewired it and cleaned it and put it back in place with very little fuss. It looks unbelievable! The cleaning job they did was amazing. It refracts rainbows all over the room and we love it now even more than we did before.

I thoroughly recommend them.

Many thanks to G & P Cohn for doing such a great job in restoring our family heirloom. It was a great pleasure to work with a family business who were so considerate and helpful. The result is spectacular and is being much admired in situ.

Restoration - Georgian Brass Hall Lantern
Tucked away in an oft forgotten part of Georgian London, in an industrial building that owes so little to its architecturally-delightful neighbours, is one of the capital’s best kept secrets: a family business made up of craftsmen with skill, courtesy and care − the three magic ingredients. My family Georgian brass hall Lantern had been poorly maintained and under-cleaned for several generations. It was refurbished, re-wired, re-glazed and new "period" Candelabra hand-made − all in the period manner. Complete joy.
Mr Hugo Peel - (Isle of Wight)
Large Vicorian Chandelier
Peter and Ben did an absolutely first rate job from start to finish on cleaning, renovating and hanging our large Chandelier. The workmanship was excellent and the light has been transformed while retaining all its character, as has the room that they fitted it in. They clearly know everything there is to know and offer great value and quality. We used them ourselves on the basis of a recommendation and would not hesitate to recommend them to others (and will be going back ourselves once we have more rooms to hang in!).

Restoration - Czech Chandelier
I was very impressed with the speed and quality of service I received. I really appreciated the timely response to my initial query and was very satisfied with the repair to my chandelier which was picked up and dropped off door to door which really made for convenience and peace of mind. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone thinking of using them.

Two inherited chandeliers were repaired, restored to their former glory and installed in my home by G P Cohn. The team was efficient, courteous and a pleasure to deal with. Their workshop is a treasure trove of beautiful objects, silently reassuring you that these are true craftsmen. I wish I had more chandeliers in need of these experts.
