Hi, my name is Martin. After 25 years working for Barclays Bank I left to become a full time dealer. I had been trading part time since 1981 and went full time in 1992.
I started dealing in furniture but drifted towards ceramics until I found my passion for chinese and japanese porcelain which I have been doing ever since.
About the business
Originally I traded at antiques fairs and from a centre in Northants. As the internet became the default method of selling in the trade I started using eBay and Trocadero.
I took a year off from the internet to go back and do fairs from August 2014. I am now back.
