New dealer in the spotlight: Serhat Ahmet at Grays
Serhat Ahmet joined us in Grays Mews just two months ago with his stock of fine European porcelain, adding this prestigious location along to his established Saturday residency in Portobello Road Antiques Market.
Serhat - who was the winner of an Antiques Young Guns Mentoring Award in July 2014 - has been actively involved in the world of fine European porcelain for over 20 years. A second generation specialist dealer, he has been surrounded by ceramics – in particular Meissen, KPM Berlin, Sèvres and Vienna – from an early age. This has meant that Serhat has developed an extensive knowledge of the subject and an excellent eye for objects of quality.
Competitively priced for both trade customers and private collectors worldwide, Serhat Ahmet is a destination for buyers of fine European porcelain when visiting London. Serhat says, "The majority of our stock dates from the 19th century, but with demand from the next generation of collectors turning to objects that complement modern interiors, our range also extends to select pieces from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, as well as some post-war modernist pieces from the long-established manufactories such as Meissen and Rosenthal. For the discerning collector, with a desire for the earlier items of European manufacture, we always carry a good selection of 18th century pieces in our stock".
"I'm really excited about the opening of my shop at Grays as it allows me to show my stock to new and existing customers during the week, and is set in a wonderful building in a fabulous part of London. We're in the heart of the London arts and antiques world and the serious buyers that frequent Grays have a wide selection of goods from 200 quality dealers to choose from in a serene environment".
You can visit Serhat at his shop from Monday to Friday, 10 am - 6 pm at Stand H10/H11 in Grays Mews, 7 Davies Mews, London W1K 5AB.
