welcome to the new online face of Chine Antiques. We hope you enjoy the blog format. Once a chineur 1 always a chineur. The objects are calling me, they’re searching for new homes and you’ve told me that you’re longing for them too. What you’ll find in the Two Maisons Online Shop are small things, the ‘shop in your pajamas’ sorts of things, easily packaged and shipped to your door. “Objet de vitrine” is the official French term.
Large or small, precious heirlooms or simple decorative objects – I believe these treasures add depth, exude character and make us smile. They have a story to tell and a sense of history that we crave in our modern homes and lives.
Remember that these things are old. And as with all old things they’re not perfect, they have bumps and bruises. I’ll do my best to point out any gaping wounds.
The prices you see in our shop don’t include shipping or insurance. Shipping charges will be added during the checkout process. For orders shipped within the US shipping rates are as follows:
$5.85 for purchases under $100

We’re happy to ship our treasures to all parts of the world and we’ll make every effort to accommodate your shipping preferences. If you’re not in the US, the shopping cart will give you options based upon your location. The shipping rates do not include country specific custom’s charges and if you’d like to insure your package please let us know.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipping from France. All pieces are sold as is and we do not accept returns or offer refunds.
- A chineur is the French word for someone (in this case me) on the hunt for antique bargains wherever they might be found ↩
