Although my interest in antiques dates back to the fringes of memory followed by a period of 'running,' it was not till 1983 that I opened my first shop in Grays Antique Market, off Oxford Street, London, followed soon after with one in the Silver Galleries, New Bond Street, London. By then, I had built up such a large customer base in the US that I was able to make my first business trip there in the spring of 1984. I exhibited at the Miami Beach Antique Show (just one hall then), the New York Pier Show (three terminals then), and a few others.
In 1994, I relocated to Hingham, Massachusetts, and then down to Marietta, Georgia, where I still maintain an office. By then I had founded Albion Antiques. In 2004, I moved back to the UK and settled in the Cotswolds.
My business is almost entirely internet-based, apart from a few international antique fairs in the USA. I offer a wide and diverse inventory in response to customer requests and interests — that is my main criterion. I am 100% committed to doing my best in offering merchandise of the highest quality, guaranteed for authenticity. I do not specialize in any genre of the silver business (although I do have my favorite periods) and my vast and ever-expanding library ensures that my descriptions are accurate and legitimate.
