Dear Friends and Clients
There is a saying that time goes quickly when you are enjoying yourself. That has certainly been the case for me – simply because I love my job. Having established Richard Redding Antiques in 1977, we are proud to be celebrating our 40th anniversary. During those forty years, I have had the privilege to handle some of history’s finest masterpieces, have met some fascinating people and have grown from strength to strength. It is a passion that I and my staff would like to share with you on this website.
As most of you will know Richard Redding Antiques was originally based in the heart of Zurich but from 2013 it has been successfully operating from an equally large gallery attached to my home in Gündisau. There is always a warm welcome for those who would like to visit the gallery and handle the objects in person but I would urge you to make an appointment since I am often out and about in search of new discoveries. Added to that the gallery continues each spring to exhibit at The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) at Maastricht – the world’s leading art and antiques show – where visitors will have an opportunity to view our most recent acquisitions.
Richard Redding Antiques is fortunate in having a strong team, all of whom are experts in their field. While some might be involved in careful and sympathetic restoration, others ensure the smooth running of the gallery, that the website is constantly updated, that objects are correctly researched and catalogued as well as professionally packed and transported to their new homes.
Whether you are a museum curator, a member of an institution, a private collector or fellow dealer, we are here to share our passion with you. So please don’t hesitate in making contact either by phone, email, via the website or in person. Our aim is for you to not only appreciate the beauty, quality and importance of our stock but above all to enjoy it.
