Equatorial Holidays

This summer, while many are coming to London for the Olympics, many Londoners are venturing to warmer climes down South and far East.  If you're caught between the two, just come to Grays and see a beautiful array of items from ancient Africa, Asia, and the Americas.  We have a number of dealers who are specialists in these antiquities, so pop over to Grays and go on a mini historic holiday!
