About Us

Andrew Dando Antiques

Welcome to the new website of Andrew Dando Antiques, specialists in 18th and early 19th century pottery and porcelain. Founded in 1915, this third generation family business (see History) was one of the first to recognize the importance of the world wide web in the area of antique ceramics.

Please note that we do not have a shop, we are available through the website, social media (Instagram and Facebook) and by appointment.

Joining his father from school, Andrew has over 40 years of  experience in the field, with his knowledge and integrity acknowledged through his membership of the British Antique Dealers’ Association (1991-2021). The business was included among the Fifty Best Antiques Shops in the Country by the Independant newspaper and was a past holder of the BACA (British Antique & Collectable Awards)  Best Specialist (Ceramics) Dealer award. Andrew has served on the vetting committees of a number of the country’s leading antique fairs including the BADA Fair and for several years was Chair of the Ceramic Vetting Committee for Antiques For Everyone at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham.

It is Andrew’s policy to fully disclose any damage or restoration to all items, condition reports are part of the description for all items on the website.
Some dealers expect buyers to ask for condition reports on their items, which might raise certain questions:

  1. Do they really want you to know?
  2. Do they really know?
  3. What are they trying to hide?
