About Our Antique Buyers
Paul’s father was an estate agent and auctioneer, so Paul grew up surrounded by antiques. His passion and decades of experience in this business, led him to settle in Eastbourne and open his own centre for antique buyers and sellers.
You may recognise Paul from TV, he has been an antiques buyer and dealer in a number of antiques hunt and auction style programmes.
The most expensive items the shop has is diamond jewellery. The rarest item the shop has discovered is a late 19th century Swiss Polyphon with 25 discs in mint condition.
One of Paul’s favourite items that he traded was a very large French bronze, ormolu and marble mantle clock, made in Paris by Picard and Hublain.
Paul’s specialist areas are jewellery and silver items, while Paul’s wife, Bianca, specialises in good quality vintage and antique silver jewellery.
Not only does Paul sell items, he is also well travelled antiques buyer. He sources locally but also travels the world locating items of interest. He has many contacts across the globe that he can trade with. This network enables him to source accurate historical information and gain competitive prices for items you may want to sell.
