Alongside a lifetime of visting auctions and collecting on a personal level, Phil's background is largely academic. Phil studied History of Art with Christie's at Glasgow University and went on to specialise, studying History of Art and the Archaeology of East Asia at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Supporting his academic work he began buying principally Japanese cloisonne, building relationships with dealers and collectors, this remains his particular area of interest and expertise. Phil joins us as a trainee valuer and much needed assistant in the saleroom.
