About Us

Santiago Ventura Real, Antiques, Art & Design is the brainchild and logical next step from “Vintiques by Mark Stacey”.

Having moved from Brighton, and with Mark working now at Reeman Dansie Auctioneers, I started this huge step of establishing myself as a dealer.

The last few years spent in Vintiques, taught me a lot about the Antiques world, learning to differentiate maiolica from majolica, Georgian from Victorian from Edwardian, which despite daunting on my first steps, to desperation of my “personal expert / mentor” I find fascinating.

Although my medical background had very little to do with this, I have always appreciated the  beauty of quirky objects, and I quite enjoy the research involved in “new” (for me) items and don’t cease to be surprised at the stories many times attached to them.
