In 1998 after spending many years working for large home retailers in the UK, we decided we wanted to start our own business. Even back then we always had a passion for mixing vintage with modern. Orold & new, as we called it then! In November 1999, after a year or so of searching for the right location, we settled in Hampton Hill, South West London, near Hampton Court. We took the plunge and opened our first shop.
I have inherited my love of British antique china from my grandfather who was a respected porcelain collector. I am greatly inspired by the mastery of science, engineering and technical wizardry closeto alchemy that saw the explosion of the British porcelain industry in 17th Century.
