1 How did you get your start?

A girlfriend and I started back in the early 1990s doing a few collectors fairs - as a hobby - and had so much fun it soon became my business. I specialise in Georg Jensen and other Scandinavian silver jewellery, and being Danish, I make many trips to Denmark to source my stock.

2 What is one project you’ve worked on lately?

“Dressing” the walls of my stand at antiques fairs. I am now keen to purchase Louis Icart (1888-1950) original etchings as they are feminine and decorative.


A Georg Jensen silver necklace with amethysts.

3 What’s one great discovery you’ve made?

I recently bought a very rare Georg Jensen silver necklace with amethysts. No 6. designed by the great man himself in 1905. 

4 What is one item you couldn’t do without?

I have a lovely poster with a picture of Georg Jensen at work. It was from an exhibition in Copenhagen in 1966, which I have as a “backdrop” at the fairs.

5 Real ale or espresso martini?

Espresso martini.
