Halloween originated with the Celtic Festival of Samhain when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. The Celts celebrated their New Year on November 1st and they believed that on the evening of October 31st the boundary between worlds of the living and the dead became blurred and the ghosts of the dead would try to return to the world of the living. 
Later in the 8th century, Pope Gregory III made November 1st a time to honour all saints, which incorporated some of the Samhain traditions. The evening of the 31st became known as All Hallows Eve, which evolved over time to Halloween.
Around the 1800s there was a move to turn Halloween into a holiday more about community and fun and make it an event for both children and adults.

No more fairs.
As the uncertainty surrounding Covid 19 continues and the new rules the UK government have put in place there will sadly be no more antique fairs this year and we predict not until June. But fear not!
We will still have lots of wonderful new items being added to the website so don’t forget to check in regularly.

Online Video
Mark helping with another project was asked by Ronati for an online video produced by them for them and us to use where ever we want. Mark’s first to say he has a face for Radio and hates cameras, so if you want to cringe with Mark please take a peek.

This video comes with an isolation hairstyle warning! ..        

A warning about fakes!

More and more of us are shopping online during these times, which has unfortunately seen a surge in rogues out there keen to prise you of your hard-earned money. Please be careful when buying antiques online, fakers have been extremely busy and making lots of money!

So many flaws hidden by clever photography, added inlays, period caddies re-veneered and turned into what appear to be rare unusual designs – these unscrupulous fraudsters giving us dealers a bad name! 
So please, do your homework thoroughly on the person/dealer and the item you are looking to buy.

I am happy to give my opinion and will not charge you for my time especially if you’re a customer of ours. I do this for many of my collectors, after all, I am as keen as you to help build the best collection money can buy. 


Following government guidelines our showroom is now open, this is as always by appointment only. All government guidelines have been taken to make sure your visit is safe. However, our online services are still the best way of purchasing.

Certain postal restrictions in place due to the coronavirus. Prior to purchasing, if you are uncertain of any postal restrictions where you live please get in contact and we will look into it for you.
