Specialist dealer of British and European antique glass from the 17th to 20th centuries
Jeanette and Malcolm were avid collectors of 17th. and 18th. century drinking glasses and the obsession was turned into a glass dealing business in 1980. Initially specialising in 18th century drinking glasses, Georgian table glass and decanters but expanded to include 19th and 20th century examples when the Kensington Church Street shop opened in 1986. The 25 year lease ended in 2011 which lead to relocation in Tetbury, Gloucestershire dealing from Antique Fairs and showing a selection of stock at Top Banana Antiques Centre in Tetbury and The Warehouse and
Antiques Centre, New St. Leominster, Herefordshire. HR6 8DR
