Diplomat Treasures International, as the name suggests, is the creation of a large collection of paintings and wonderful objects over time. It all began when my grandmother gave me a coin aged seven (now 39 years ago). Other collections have been added as friends, family and fellow collectors have allowed for this honour.
The gallery is situated within Alfies Antiques Market in North London and open to anyone from collector or those simply wishing to browse. There is a lovely cafe at the top for a drink or bite to enjoy some calm away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The collection encompasses a wide range of interests including but not limited to: Japanese netsuke & okimono, Chinese jades & ceramics, paintings, graffiti art, Russian and Greek icons, African masks and carvings and plenty more!
The business remains a hobby built on passion. The gallery is currently open Tues-Thurs and Saturday's or by appointment.
Hope to see you there.
