Jonathan’s love for antiques

Jonathan specialises in jewellery, watches, English furniture and Persian carpets.

 

But before discovering his love for antiques, Jonathan wanted to be a vet.

In a BBC One interview, he revealed that he would have become a ski instructor or a vet if he wasn’t working in the antiques field.

He added that his favourite part about antiques is the actual auctioneering as this is the time he can have some fun.

One of the best bargains Jonathan had ever found was a £180 poster which he later sold for £2100.
