EMINENT WELSH ANTIQUES DEALER GOES DIGITAL
Robert Pugh, an antiques and welsh pottery expert with over 30 years of experience, specialising in the C18th and C19th, has finally taken a leap into the C21st with the launch of a website - robertpughantiques.co.uk
Starting your first website in 2016 when you have been in business since the early 80s is something of news item in itself but Robert is a traditionalist and so we can expect something of the old school entwined with up to the minute technology from this particular Welsh expert.
Content will be mostly Welsh antiques, specifically Swansea and Llanelly Pottery, watercolour and oil paintings, decorative objects, occasional furniture, artefacts, and almost anything relating to Wales and Welsh history and culture.
Llanelly Pottery - Cockerel Plate
A well-known authority in Welsh pottery and the author of two books and numerous articles, Robert Pugh gained his much respected knowledge from his experiences as a dealer at leading fairs in such cities as London and Bath. He was a regular at Bath Decorative Antiques Fair with his wife Carol, also an antiques expert, and they went on to organise their own fairs in Wales - Towy Events when they returned to live in Carmarthen some 15 years ago
He started out as a collector with a passion for Llanelly Pottery in particular, and amongst his many achievements, went on to chair the ceramics vetting committee at Antiques for Everyone .
Lignum Vitae Pestle
The new website displays the expertise, experience and professionalism that Robert Pugh Antiques has become known for by its many discerning clients.
Robert is very excited for this new chapter in his business: “I must confess that while I could be described as a bit of technophobe I’m very aware of the power of the world wide web and it would be foolish of me to think that there isn’t a market for selling antiques online... Robert Pugh Antiques has an excellent reputation and I’m looking forward to hearing from new customers through the website as well as offering our existing customers a way to see our stock from the comfort of their own homes.”
