About Us - Buy With Confidence
Spread along the length of this world-renowned street for antiques, and scattered down its pretty side streets, are over 60 of the highest quality Antiques Dealers offering fine art and antiques from the Tang dynasty to the art deco movement.
Some of the world's leading experts in their respective fields have chosen the Kensington Church Street Area as their base. Most of the dealers are members of the two main British trade bodies, the “British Antique Dealers Association” (BADA) and the “London and Provincial Antique Dealers Association” (LAPADA). In fact Kensington Church Street has the highest concentration of BADA members of any area in the country. The main aim of all these associations is to establish and maintain confidence between their members and the public, both in buying and selling. They provide safeguards for those who deal with the members and so buying from a BADA or LAPADA member means that any purchaser can be sure of an item’s authenticity and quality.
Many of the dealers who exhibit at prestigious antique fairs like the world respected Grosvenor House, Olympia, Maastricht and New York Armory have their showrooms here. Even if you have missed any of these fairs, you must visit the street – with over 60 dealers offering a vast range, it’s like an antique fair that’s open all year round. Exhibits include Japanese and Chinese Ceramics & Oriental Works of Art, European Porcelain and Pottery, English and Continental Furniture, Silver, 20th Century Decorative Arts, Indian & Islamic antiquities, Books, Mirrors and Clocks.
