At the age of 11, Spencer Swaffer had his own museum. Made up by bric-a-brac that he bought in Brighton junk shops, he charged two pence entry fee to anyone who wished to see it and was featured on the BBC Radio Today programme. A Brighton dealer heard the broadcast, paid his entry fee to see the collection, and quickly offered Spencer £50 for two pieces of Egyptian pottery. Realising that he would rather have £50 than the exhibits, the young Spencer instantly converted from museum curator to antiques dealer.

Effortlessly glamorous, achingly stylish; old money grandeur with a humorous undertone. This is the Spencer Swaffer Antiques look. Spencer Swaffer has been dealing in Arundel for 40 years and, was an international trade dealer from the start. His business today is one of the most celebrated in the world of decorative antiques and is an almost compulsory port of call for hundreds of top dealers and decorators. His clients are from both trade and private sectors, but Spencer describes himself as a dealer's dealer.
