GUEST & GRAY IS ONE OF THE OLDEST DEALERSHIPS IN ANTIQUE CERAMICS IN CENTRAL LONDON

Guest & Gray have been trading in Oriental porcelain and other early ceramics for many years, in the course of which they have acquired hundreds of long-standing customers, including many serious collectors and museums both here in Europe, the United States as well as the rest of the world.

Their emphasis has been on Oriental porcelain and European pottery. Oriental porcelain because of its superb designs and quality, and European pottery for its warmth, charm and often excellent decoration.

In all good ceramics there is a symbiosis of form, colour and decoration. And that is what Guest and Gray have always looked for.
