With a combined experience of over 60 years Gavin Morgan and Gary Strickland have worked together since 1990. In the years prior to this they repeatedly found themselves competing against each other in their search for the best stock. They have always shared a love of strong design and high quality craftsmanship and with this in short supply they soon worked out that by combining forces they could achieve more and source the best. Initially they worked from their gallery in Kensington Church Street, London as JAG Decorative Arts. During that time they built up a large and loyal clientele of collectors, dealers and enthusiasts for high quality Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Our customers range from private collectors worldwide, museums and institutions to dealers alike.
In 2005 after 15 years of successfully running the gallery, in light of the changing nature of the antiques trade we felt the time was right for us to reduce our costs and deal exclusively from the website and by appointment. By doing this we have managed to bring high quality Decorative Arts to our many customers but at even better prices.
Specialists in Liberty metalwork and Archibald Knox in particular, Morgan Strickland Ltd also carry an extensive stock of good Jugendstil, Secession and Darmstadt, Wiener Werkstatte, WMF, Kayserzinn, Osiris, Art Glass including Lalique, Gallé, Daum, Schneider and Loetz, ceramics, good lighting and small furniture and fittings.
We are members of the UK and European trade associations LAPADA and CINOA.
In addition to the stock we carry, we are also very happy to provide a search service for your specific requirements.
We exhibit regularly at the LAPADA and Olympia Antique Fairs, The Antiques for Everyone show at the NEC, The Penman Chelsea Town Hall and Miami Beach, USA. See our Blog section for more details.
