About us

The Antique Dispensary Ltd was formed in 1998 and is a specialist source of exceptional antiques for the dealer and collector alike, with new finds constantly being added on a weekly basis.

The Purveyor, (Laurence Cooper) began dealing in 1983.

“I was an active collector of old bottles in my youth and from there my knowledge grew by 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.”
