1 How did you get your start?

My dad was an antiques dealer specialising in Worcester porcelain and that is my focus now.

2 What challenges are facing the trade?

Building up people’s confidence with everything being shut down for so long and getting people to come back to the fairs.

3 Have you noticed any recent collecting trends?

Especially selling Royal Worcester, the Chinese and Korean markets are absolutely loving it. I have a lot of business from people in the UK buying for dealers overseas.

4 What is one great discovery you have made?

A couple of years ago I bought an 18th century Worcester mug for £10 which I then sold for £300.

5 What is one thing you couldn’t do without?

Tea (but if you’re asking real ale or espresso martini, mine’s a real ale).
