Welcome to Scottish Antiques

Where history in antique silver, porcelain and glass comes to life

We sell rare 17th, 18th and 19th century Georgian glass, Victorian glass and art glass by Rene Lalique, Daum, Legras , Emile Galle and more curated by Eric Knowles. With the arrival of Mark Hill we have both extended and modernised our range with the finest Czech and other art glass. Richard Price has an extensive collection of antique clocks and watches. Josephs have the finest of antique jewellery and Pete Redman offers unique and antique toys. We have a resident numismatist, silver specialist, Tunbridge Ware expert, bronzes and all things deco, chandeliers, fine art and a paperweight specialist. All our collective expertise is available on The Pantiles and on the phone.

We carry a selection of 18th century Worcester porcelain, Bow, Chelsea, Lowestoft porcelain and other English antique porcelain. We also have decorative Sèvres, Paris and other French  porcelain for sale, Meissen and other continental factories and finally both decorative and functional investment grade antique silver, coins and Tunbridge Ware.

The team provides a complete service to both domestic and international collectors.  We do not participate in trade fairs and shows other than as guest speakers. Our primary focus is on-line and our own permanent exhibition, The Pantiles Arcade in Tunbridge Wells and the benefits of that cost saving is evident in the value we deliver. Our descriptions are a testimony to accuracy, our articles are researched and validated, they remain in the public domain for ever. Our team includes multiple renowned experts and published authors. 

Having the ability to take business transactions entirely on-line to customers in every corner of the globe should they so choose via our online antique store, or personal contact at The Pantiles Arcade, if they prefer, blends the very best of the old and the new.

We have some very fine pieces that we sell on behalf of private clients at cost rates well below that of any auction room. We offer a unique service that removes the anxiety and doubt associated with buying and selling investment grade glass, silver, porcelain and investment grade items 'online' from private sellers.  We vet everything we sell and we provide both insurance, probate valuations and a channel to market for executors and collectors. Please contact us to discuss this further, we look forward to hearing from you.
