I am a specialist antiques dealer in Art Nouveau and Art Deco Sculpture and Glass (mainly European) as well as Arts and Crafts. (English & Scottish) of the period 1880 to 1935. I was a collector from a very young age and was brought up surrounded by Antiques. Antiques buying and collecting is a lifelong passion.
Over 20 years ago the opportunity came for me to become a full time dealer and my first Antiques Fair was a Galloway Fair in Harrogate. I have always loved the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period and the Arts and Crafts Movement. The craftsmanship, design and style of this period is stunning. The quality of workmanship is superb. The skill used to make such beautiful and detailed pieces is incredible especially when one considers the tools available.
I am often asked for advice on starting a collection. Decide what you like, find out about it and talk to a dealer you trust – dealers are always happy to talk about their stock. The piece of advice I would give to a collector starting out is to buy the best – if you have £1000 to spend, don’t buy a lot of small items, wait until you find the really good piece and buy one item for the whole £1000.
Whether you are looking for a piece from specific artists like Galle, Daum, Loetz, Moser, and Rene Lalique or Sculpture from Chiparus, Preiss or Lorenzl or Arts and Crafts from Newlyn, Liberty or Keswick I can help. I am always happy to discuss items and send additional hi res images or condition reports on any item. Shipping can be arranged all over the world. All items are shipped fully insured and this is always included in the price unless otherwise agreed
We also offer a search and find service if you are looking for a specific piece.
