Like so many dealers, Robert started as a collector with a passion for Welsh Pottery, and Llanelly Pottery in particular. During the course of over forty years he has become a well known authority, published two books, numerous articles and has acquired a wealth of knowledge and contacts through his dealing life at fairs and other outlets in London, Bath and elsewhere. Chairing the ceramics vetting committee at the NEC Antiques For Everyone fairs for several years added to the breadth of this experience, all of which is now reflected in the variety of antiques he plans to bring to this website.
Alongside pottery and other ceramics, decorative objects, pictures, and occasional furniture and artefacts, will share a similar flavour - predominantly of Welsh interest or sourced in Wales - and if not Welsh, they must be quirky and unusual to earn their place!.
And it’s not just about Swansea and Llanelly Pottery (although they will feature strongly and we hold a much larger stock that illustrated here). The website should be a first stop for Welsh views in watercolours and oils, mining items (particularly tobacco boxes), trade tokens and almost anything appertaining to Wales and Welsh history and culture.
We would be pleased to send you further details and images of items illustrated here, as well as information about other similar items we have in stock. If you have particular “wants”, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to help.
