About Us

W J M Antiques offers a warm welcome to customers both new and old!

I have been buying, collecting, appraising and selling ethnographic, Asian and world antiques for a considerable time, with over thirty years experience. My appraisal and valuation work includes auction houses, trade and the private collector / individual.

The items chosen for the website are generally sourced from within the UK art & antiques market, also private collections. Provenance, if available, will be passed to customers and can be stated in the form of a signed certificate.

Items are displayed in the most relevant category - for example, betel related items will appear in "Betel Accoutrements" not country / region of origin. This can also apply to silver etc.

Any restoration, (old or more recent) will be described with appropriate detail. I prefer to 'leave well alone' as much as possible and do not offer pieces with recently added materials or over painting / refinishing etc. Restoration has always been a point of contention - I personally feel that a pure antique has aged / survived with unique patina and associated wear etc.

Please use one of the contact links for more information, general enquires, to discuss a price, (or 'make an offer') and check-out etc.

Payments - Invoices will be raised upon purchase, payment can be made securely using Paypal or BACS to our UK bank, (full bank details will be made to the purchaser in order to complete payment through BACS).
