A specialist source of exceptional antiques
for the dealer and collector

“I was an active collector of old bottles in my youth and from there my knowledge grew from wheeling and dealing at all of Londons Antique markets like Bermondsey, Camden Lock, Covent Garden and Portobello Road.

Today, I have an eclectic knowledge of many antique collectable fields. This has helped me to form a wide range of private collections in the last 35 years or so.”
