As a fine art sculpture graduate I have applied my appreciation and understanding of form and function to my lifelong professional career in the antiques trade. Over forty years dealing in what I considered worthy, within the fields of decorative arts and sciences, I have always purchased over a wide spectrum and look forward to offering an exciting variety of stimulating pieces.
