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.
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.
