About Duncan: Having been fascinated by hallmarks as a child, Duncan got his first proper introduction to antique silver working for a well known silver dealer on Portobello Road while still at university in 1987. After graduating, Duncan worked for a Merchant Bank in the City for a few years before the attractions of his Saturday job, inevitably, were too compelling. Duncan has spent the last 30 years immersed in antique silver.
As a valuer he has catalogued collections for, among others, The Middle Temple, Lloyds of London, The Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers, The City of Nottingham Museum and The Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
He has appeared regularly as a specialist silver valuer on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow, having started on the same show, Hertford College Oxford, as Fiona Bruce, in 2008.
As a dealer, after running his own stand on Portobello Road Duncan moved to the west country in 2001 and has had a specialist antique silver shop in Bath since 2010.
