About Us

In 1975 Anthony Healy commenced trading in Antiques and Architectural Antiques from The Sydney Antique Centre. Growing up in Dublin, he became accustomed to viewing Antiques with his parents, both of whom were avid collectors .

Anthony was one of the first Antique dealers to specialise in the reclamation of large architectural pieces, his knowledge and expertise in this area culminated in him becoming a partner in the business Architectural Heritage situated in Glebe.

After many years of business at the Sydney Antique Centre, Anthony and Catherine commenced trading from premises in Flinders Street Surry Hills.  Our trading name was The Flinders Antique Centre. During this period the business grew rapidly in both antique furniture, fireplaces and architectural pieces.

On the night of August 30 1995, the south western corner of the first floor of the Flinders Antique Centre building caught alight. The first floor was engulfed in fire, nothing remained on this level.

The Ground floor remained intact, however, many pieces of antique furniture were damaged from the water sprayed by the fire brigade.

Due to the fire, the building became structurally unsound and had to be demolished.

We re – built our business and reopened in Camperdown. From these premises we became direct importers of cast iron, marble and bronze garden pieces. Our trading name became Architectural Decor. In 2001 the opportunity to move to larger premises became available and we opened at 812-820 Parramatta Road Lewisham. We continued to import both large and small architectural pieces such as eagles, stages, roosters, fountains, urns and statues

Due to the continued growth in the business we commenced trading from The Old Pot Factory site situated at 44-54 Old Hume Highway Braemar which is located in the Southern Highlands. Approximately, a 70 minute drive south from Sydney.

The Old Pot Factory site covers 8500 square metres. We have maintained importing cast iron, marble and bronze garden pieces. We have also added teak garden furniture and doors and windows from The French quarter in Egypt to our sale items.  Antique furniture and marble fireplaces remain a passion and are present in each of the 4 buildings on the premises.

We invite you to browse the web site and we look forward to being of assistance to you in the future.
