Victorian Silver Butter Shell (2 of 3) Victorian Silver Butter Shell (3 of 3)

I have been dealing in antiques since 1964, starting in the street markets of London's East End. I then moved to the West Country with shops in Devon and Somerset and finally to a beautiful barn in Wiltshire. I regularly showed at Antique Fairs in London, Bath and Harrogate. I retired after illness in 2003 and moved to Spain. However the excitement of the trade and old friends in the business lured me back to the British Isles, and I decided to try a new venture on the internet which I have been doing with my website since 2010.
