I have collected glass and ceramics,
antiques and antiquities for many years, and my shop philosophy is to sell very good antiques at very low prices very quickly so I do not need to carry much stock; larger shops
will charge much more, but take much longer than I do to make a sale.
Each to their own, then - but that makes my prices ultra-low compared to a
bricks-and-mortar antiques shop.
I try to describe everything I sell as honestly as possible,
including any damage, issues, or attributions to a maker, in my descriptions.
If you have any questions, a problem with a piece you’ve bought, or even

don’t ever leave negative or neutral feedback without speaking to me – we can
always come to a solution.
