Let’s not refer to ourselves as the Trade any more, the Antiques’s a killer.

We do not hear the Auction Houses calling themselves the Auction Trade! Do we hear those who carry out Valuations calling themselves the Valuation Trade!

We are a Profession and we should be proud of it. Dealers have amassed vast skills , knowledge and expertise in all of our fields. We are Professional Art and Antique Dealers and we should be presenting our industry in this way.

Isn't it about time we shake off the emblem of the TRADE?
