About Us

About Richard Hoppé:

A collector for as long as I can remember, a full time dealer since the year 2000. My attraction to European glass and tiles was formed during the twenty-five years I spent working abroad, my fascination with scent bottles started while photographing a collection for an auction catalogue. My enthusiasm for antiques continues every day through work as a dealer, professional valuer, and fine art photographer. I am a member of the leading English dealer association, LAPADA, and the International Perfume Bottle Association.

My business philosophy is a simple one:

To offer interesting, quality antiques and to offer a trustworthy, reliable, competent and friendly service. I always try to take the best photographs and to give the most accurate descriptions and condition reports. I'm always happy to send additional images or further written information, I'm also happy to receive comments, suggestions, and, if needs be, criticism.
