OUR MISSION

To work with astute individuals, be they advanced or beginning collectors, to construct collections where overall quality, presentation and condition are of primary importance.

OUR GOAL

To be globally recognised as the chosen source for premium collectables for astute and discerning collectors.

OUR GUIDING IDEOLOGY

Our family's enduring committment to premium quality collectables has unanimously shown us over decades, that the price of objects, in the long run, is secondary to authenticity, condition, quality and desirability. We are abhorred by misdescription, repairs, items of dubious quality (or copies), which seemingly have become commonplace in recent years.

OUR GUARANTEE TO YOU

  • Every item on this site is guaranteed as to condition and authenticity 100% as described, delivering the buyer the utmost confidence in every purchase made with us. We will endeavour to meet or exceed your expectations for customer service – as we are a family owned and dedicated business committed to a perfect outcome on each and every transaction.
