Harry started in the antiques trade at the tender age of seven years and six months. For a long time he had been nagging his father to allow him to accompany him on his country buying trips and finally his father relented. Some 11 years later, after a wasted youth spent chasing too many girls and tennis balls, he entered the family business where he remains to this day.
His love of tennis has passed to be replaced by a passion for golf and in his time off he can found searching the rough for his errant tee shots or regaling fellow art and antique dealers of past treasures and reminiscing about the days of old.
Despite his tongue in cheek manner, he is actually well respected for his knowledge of eighteenth century furniture. He advises both private collectors and museums around the world. He serves on the Vetting Committee for both the Masterpiece Fair (which he co-founded) and the Winter Antique Show and has also served on Committees for other fairs around the world.
