Our services

Jester's faithful old truck


Jester Antiques are able to offer a full restoration service for your clocks, to include cases, dials and movements.


We like to deliver and set up all our longcase clocks in England and Wales, and do not make a charge for this.

Further afield a charge is made. For our customers who live abroad, we are happy to arrange packing and shipping to anywhere in the world.

Our story

Jester Antiques is a well established business set up by the late Peter Bairsto, and Lorna Coles. They have both been in the antique clock trade for many years; their experience is reflected in their careful selection of stock. Personal service is Jester’s philosophy and they are always happy to search out special pieces on request.

The shop is based in the charming market town of Tetbury, in the fine Gloucestershire countryside of the Cotswolds. Almost equidistant from Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham, the town’s elegant Georgian and earlier architecture, large number of listed buildings and mediaeval street names have all contributed to Tetbury's designation as an Outstanding Area of Conservation.

Peter and Lorna meet Prince Charles in 2012.
