We are Ian and Brigid Rodgers, trading as Drove House Antiques. We specialise in two types of ceramics: Antique Chinese porcelain from the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries, and Nineteenth Century Parian wares.
Chinese Porcelain from the C17th and C18th. We have been buying and selling antique Chinese porcelain for the last 16 years, and we sell to customers worldwide, both private and trade buyers, many of whom have become valued regular purchasers from us. Our aim is to offer good quality and interesting examples of genuine antique Chinese ceramics so that, whether you are a new collector or an old hand, you will find something to tempt you! We always have a selection of Chinese export wares and also examples of European-decorated Chinese porcelain.
Chinese textiles. We have a range of antique Chinese textiles for sale
Antique Parian wares from the C19th. We offer for sale good quality, accurately-described Victorian Parian wares from factories such as Minton, Copeland, Robinson and Leadbeater and Worcester. We always try to have available a range of Parian busts and figures.
We unconditionally guarantee the items we sell as being correctly described. We have created two web sites which offer a good selection of these wares for sale.
