How did you initially come up with the idea or concept for the business?

It started with a passion for collecting antique and vintage china English teaware. This passion for collecting old china and silver teaware items for the past 36 years grew into a business as many people would ask if I could source various vintage and antique pieces for them.

Tell us about some of the major turning points in the history of your business.

When my collection started getting out of hand and I had boxes of china everywhere in my home. I knew that I could not use all of the china and therefore decided to offload some.

What made you choose Dubai as a location to setup your business?

It's my home.

Finally, what sets your business apart from the competition?

There are not many businesses like mine in the UAE that specialize in English antique and vintage china and silver teaware. I personally source each item from different places around the UK for their quality, beauty and collectability. Each item has a background and history which I research into before selling on.
