About us

We have no less than 28 years experience as antiques dealers.
Trained by the old school dealers, they passed on the correct work ethic, to maintain a healthy happy approach to life as an antiques dealer; to whom we are truly grateful. Every day as a dealer is a pleasure working with interesting people and to be surrounded with unique and beautiful objects.

18 years ago we trained in Antique Restoration, and now run our own work shop. This enables us to make our business very environmentally friendly. We get enormous pleasure in restoring a once beautiful item back to its former glory and placing it back in the market place to be enjoyed for another 100 years. With a network of talented restorers built up over our 28 years there is no restoration job we cannot do. Each job we undertake is restored individually, firstly to ensure the structure is once again sound. Then secondly the finish of the item is chosen sympathetically to retain its antique charm. Or we bring the object back to life fully restoring it like the day it was made just leaving evidence of its age, this is decided by the team or the client by special request.

We started at Bermondsey and Camden Passage Antique Markets in the early 80's selling silver and jewellery, as the business evolved we moved more and more towards objects d'art, collectables and furniture. Today we deal in anything from large bookcases to small collectables. We are a group of 3, working out of 101 Portobello Road Market, upstairs in the Red Teapot, W11 2QB, on Saturdays from 6.30am to 3.00pm or by appointment.

We also stand at Battersea Decorative Fair London 3 times a year and The NEC Antiques for everyone Fair at Birmingham.

We follow closely what happens in the world of interior design, and feel there is room for antique and vintage in all modern interiors, complimenting each other, adding style and nostalgia in that unique piece of furniture, object d'art or piece of art. We have worked with clients and designers worldwide sourcing, antique, decorative and vintage items. We have worked on personal projects, hotels, restaurants and bars for unique and interesting pieces . Style is ever evolving, but one thing that never changes, is that people want to find their own unique look or style, the world of Antiques is the place to find this. With a small or large budget, we can find something for everyone. There is also the positive of a sound investment, all the while helping the environment. Enjoy our site we hope to give you inspiration.
