I have been a collector of antiques for more than forty years, and for the last fourteen years I have been dealing in my area of specialist interest which is British porcelains made in the years prior to 1850. I trade in quite a broad range of values and types of wares, which can include collectable and formerly useful items as well as fine ornamental pieces.
I offer a retail outlet at the Mission Hall Antiques Centre in Barnard Castle Co. Durham which is close to the A66 and the North Yorkshire and Cumbrian borders. I am also available by appointment, and I am always pleased to talk to specialist collectors, and also to the many people who may only buy something because they just happen to like it.
When sourcing new stock, I like to bear in mind particular criteria, such as condition, quality, rarity and cost, as I do like to satisfy as many of these attributes as possible before I make acquisitions. In addition, I try to seek out those special pieces which are so difficult to find at the right price these days.
Moreover, I like to think that I am an approachable person, and if you think that I may be able to help you, then please see my contact page for details of how to get in touch with me.
We shall be exhibiting some exciting new stock at the Northern Antiques Fair which is to be held in the Garden Rooms at Tennant’s auction house in Leyburn this year. The fair will be open from Thursday 30th September until Sunday 3rd October. Please do get in touch if you are not on our mailing list, as we shall be happy to send you a complimentary invitation ticket.
