Mark was born in South Wales, but moved to London to work in the care profession before starting his own antiques dealing business. He developed a passion for Blue and White transfer printed wares and spent time as Honorary Secretary of the Friends of Blue, a well known collectors club. Mark has been in the antiques world for over 20 years, most of which was spent in auction houses. He joined Bonhams in 1995 at their successful Hove office as a general valuer and regional representative before joining Sotheby’s, initially specialising in the ceramics department and then the valuations department for 5 years.

Mark worked for Hamptons/Dreweatt Neate Fine Art, where as well as being a successful valuer he was head of Decorative Arts, and was later made a Director. Over this time Mark has gained a wealth of experience and contacts which will be used in a new capacity as an independent consultant, valuer and auctioneer.

We are delighted that Mark will be joining us and will be on hand in our “Cash in the Underbuild’ stand near the indoor bar area to value your antiques so bring them along……
