A Career in Antiques

Philip worked for the London based Auction Houses, Philips and Christie’s for over 30 years ending his career as a director, head of department and auctioneer for Christies.  Starting as a trainee with Philips he soon found his passion in “antique” furniture and his experience has given him the opportunity to develop his understanding of furniture and its values.  He has travelled widely in Europe and has contributed to many art magazines and books and has been a lecturer, tutor and mentor to trainees in the field.  Philip’s talk will show a personal journey which demonstrates the training, daily routines and workings within the world of auction houses.
