'Antiques should be brought for your enjoyment as well as an investment'

Although George is still very young, he has been interested in antiques since he was a child. He once spent his school holidays helping a local charity sell & value some donated antiques. This has allowed him to build up his knowledge of antiques including his specialist subjects which are English ceramics, English silver & rare objects. 

George has qualifications in Business Studies & I.T. His Business Studies qualification led to him winning an award. He has also attended a globally recognised business running course as well as courses in bookkeeping & accounting. Furthermore, he has qualifications in employability skills & counselling skills.

Selling items to buyers located in Hollywood & clients based at well known London & international addresses, he has developed a very trusted name within the antiques industry globally. TV programmes & films in the UK and around the world have trusted George to supply them with objects. He has also sold to museums, traders, well known companies, private buyers & global collectors. 

As a young person, George is very passionate about keeping antiques in trend. George believes that having the perfect mix of antique, vintage & modern décor will keep your home looking stylish. 


'Many people wrongly believe that antiques will make your house look outdated however choosing the right antiques to fit with your unique style will add class & quality to your home. Not every antique object will be to your taste but if you keep looking, the right antique will find you. In the same way that too many antiques in your house can clutter up the place, having no antique objects at all will make your house look tacky, mass produced & identical to your neighbour. It is important not to confuse antique with 'second hand' as they are very different things. Having a minimalist display of antique, vintage & modern interiors together will perfectly collide to make the ideal luxury home.'

'Buying antiques is not about having knowledge or experience, it's about buying unique objects that you like & that no one else can have. A lack of understanding for an object should not be a deterrent from purchasing, it should make you want to buy it more!'

'Once you have parted with your antique, it's none of your business what the buyer does with it.......Concentrate on your own sales rather than someone else's!'
