Terrific Antique Dealers.

Updated: Jul 25

The working title for this was 'A-Z of Antique Dealers', I thought that was too worrisome as I was inevitably going to miss people out. So I thought no one could argue with 'Terrific Dealers'.

Here is the list of people whose website's I check a lot and always keep me inspired & excited with the pieces the source. I will be continually updating the list, so do check back when you remember!



Adam Bray

What Period Do you mainly collect? 

I can’t really collect, its not in my DNA, I tend to buy things I see across a crowded room that make my pulse rate quicken regardless of period or culture. I do live with some of the things I buy but most things find their true home sooner or later. 

Price Range?

We sell things from £200

Favourite Piece on the website at the moment?

My favourite thing at the moment is a ‘vide poche’ ( something to empty you pockets into when you take off your trousers) attributable to Francois Arnal of Atelier A, it's a great piece of Parisian late 1960s atmosphere; Pop Art, Anarchy and with a lovely un messed about with original surface.

Almásy Antiques-


What Period Do you mainly collect?: For me, the period is non-consequential. An object must have the best original colour, the right form and of course be in some way enlightening.


Price Range?:

The wonderful joy of collecting is that it can be done on any budget!


Favourite Piece on the website at the moment? (could you send a picture)?:

Alhambra Gazelle Vase - The newly re-discovered storage jars at the Alhambra palace became iconic symbols of Spain’s Islamic past in the early 1800s. A new wave of erudite tourists with a craze for historicist styles propelled potters in Manises to revive the 14th-century technique of lustre ceramics and reproduce smaller souvenir versions.

Sauce London

What period do you mainly collect?

We mainly deal in mid-20th century pieces, but if I think something fits in with our look I won’t disregard 19th or 18th century. I actually just bought a 17th-century tapestry. Bit of a wildcard but it’s fantastic!

Favourite piece? Stitched leather daybed by Jacques Adnet.

Societique


What Period Do you mainly collect?

I like to buy from any period.  I get just as excited about something from 1690 as 1990.  The key factor is originality.  Though mood, courage, and healthiness of bank balance do play a part in the process...


Price Range?

£50-£5,000 but like to keep things under a grand...
