We have been Meeting and Exceeding Collectors Expectations for Decades

We are an Internet based business trading from home at Highfields near Toowoomba Qld 4352 Australia (this is not a shopfront location). We will see customers by appointment or at the Antiques Fairs we attend. We happily ship throughout Australia (and do so, daily) and to many developed countries - for example USA, Japan and Singapore, New Zealand, UK and Canada.

Roundabout Antiques is proudly owned and operated by the Neilsen family, parents Michael and Wendy, and their son Robert. The business is an extension of our families enduring commitment as Professional Antique and Collectables Dealers, with a long history in the trade commencing business in 1983 and continuous trading since then. Health permitting, we wish to remain in this industry for decades to come - so we have very long term, enduring goals - and our commitment to our customers is similarly enduring. When purchasing with us, you benefit from our decades of experience, our critical "eye", our attention to detail and our commitment to authenticity.

Decades of Experience
For us, dealing in antiques and collectables isn't a hobby - but a fulltime profession driven by lifelong learning. When you deal with us, you benefit from (cumulatively) some 70 years experience in the antiques and collectables field. We have handled a wide gamut of pieces, totalling hundreds of thousands of items, adding to many millions of dollars over our decades in the industry. We have learnt from each item we have inspected, handled, bought and sold - or seen at many antiques and collectables fairs, and in many advanced collectors homes.

Our in depth knowledge in our chosen field has been previously recognised professionally by our peers, in being chosen as Editor of the Alan Carters Price Guide to Antiques in Australia (Royal Doulton) and we have had numerous articles published in Antiques and Collectables publications. 

Our Critical "Eye"
We have a wealth of experience in our chosen fields, developed over decades, and apply that knowledge in searching out rare and desirable, quality items in excellent condition.

Attention to Detail
We pride ourselves in our accurate descriptions and integrity regarding descriptions. We are committed to a fair dealing "ethos" - and strive to maintain our long history in the antiques trade and our professionalism.

Collectors can rest assured that they will receive our attention to detail in every aspect of the purchase transaction, from accurate condition descriptions, to professional packing and prompt dispatch of your purchase, together with provision of tracking details for each purchase.

We look forward to doing business with you.

Our Guarantee to You
Every item on this site is guaranteed as to condition and authenticity 100% as described, delivering the buyer the utmost confidence in every purchase made with us. We will endeavour to meet or exceed your expectations for customer service – as we are a family owned and dedicated business committed to a perfect outcome on each and every transaction.
