Valerie began her trading career in general antiques during the mid 1980's before specialising in the later 19th/20th century periods of English porcelain, shortly afterwards. David joined her in business some two years later and today some 30 years on they continue in this specialisation. Originally shop based in the North of England, Valerie recognised during the early years the need to exhibit her stock to a wider audience and began trading from Antiques fairs nationwide.
Today the business is totally fairs and internet based allowing her to service existing and new clients from across the world. Having exhibited at most of the prestigious UK fairs, Valerie and David have vetted quality fairs for many years and are contacted frequently to provide assessments and valuations for established collectors, television producers and the Insurance Industry.
