The Antique Trader was established in the 1970s in North London's Camden Passage antique centre. The partners, Brian Thompson and Derek Rothera, at that time specialised in early English oak furniture.

By the 1980s they were dealing in Georgian and Biedermeier periods which were more popular at that time. However, the partner's real interest lay in the Arts & Crafts movement which drew much of it's inspiration from the craftsman of the early English country furniture makers.

In the mid 1980s they began infiltrating Morris, Liberty and Cotswold School pieces into their stock and by the 1990s, the shop was entirely dedicated to the Arts & Crafts movement, designers and makers.

In 1996 the business was relocated to it's current premises which were built at the turn of the 19th Century as a hat making factory. Derek and Brian established the name of The Antique Trader at The Millinery Works, 87 Southgate Road, London N! 3JS.
