A very brief story

Tenement Antiques is an antiques trading business, run by father and son team, Leslie and Peter Gilchrist. Leslie is a furniture craftsman by trade, specialising in wood turning and carpentry. Peter is a Scottish food historian, BBC Radio Scotland contributor and Scottish Food Ambassador.

Always passionate about curiosities and collectables, the duo launched Tenement Antiques in 2023, buying and selling kitchenalia and home accessories, with a focus on functional and decorative high-quality items.


Shop the online store for the latest antiques. Personal delivery is available in Renfrewshire and Glasgow, with post and courier services available around the world. If you are looking for something in particular, do get in touch; we source our stock from dealers across the UK and can work with you to find the missing treasure you’re looking for.

We also buy high-quality antiques and collectables, so if you’re looking to let go of heirlooms or make room for new purchases, please get in touch. We are available for home clearances and evaluations in the west coast of Scotland.
