I have been a collector of antiques for more than thirty years, and for the last seven 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 a broad range of values and types of wares, which can include both useful and decorative items with the emphasis placed firmly on good quality.
At the moment I only exhibit at fairs on special occasions, as I much prefer to keep my prices as competitive as possible, but I do 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 border. I am also available by appointment, and I am always pleased to talk to collectors, the trade and also to people who may only buy something because they just happen to like it.
When sourcing new stock, I like to bear in mind five specific criteria, namely condition, quality, rarity, visual appeal and cost, as I do like to satisfy two or more of these conditions before I make acquisitions.
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.
