Welcome to Vintage Living, my name is Rick Hubbard and this is my business website. For over 20 years I have been collecting and dealing in Art Deco ceramics and furnishings.
Our Cirencester Shop
My company Vintage Living and Lifestyle is based in Southampton, and we have a shop in Cirencester Antique Centre. Cirencester is a beautiful market town in the heart of the Cotswolds, within easy reach of the M4 and M5. Please visit us, next time you are in the area.
Art Deco, Mid Century Collectables
My interest in Art Deco began when I was 19, when I accidentally discovered a pair of Art Deco vases in my parent’s loft. I really liked the style of the vases, and a trip to the local library revealed what they were and when they were made. From then on I was hooked, and have been collecting all types of Art Deco items ever since.
Today, my main interests have broadened somewhat to include sculpture, art deco ceramics, mid century collectables and Danish furniture. I have a particular expertise in Shelley China and have had several articles printed in antiques magazines.
Clients & Friends Worldwide
Our client base covers all of the UK. We also have clients and friends further afield in other parts of Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Our Stock Changes Regularly
We search home and abroad looking for quality items from flea markets, antique fairs, shops etc. Our stock changes regularly and we get a wide selection of items from antiquities to modern high-end designs.
I have been collecting and dealing for over twenty years, so have built up a good knowledge base in many different areas. In general we specialise in the Art Deco and Mid Century Modern periods, however, we do buy a wide range of items, so please check out all of the sections on this site if you are interested in a different periods and styles.
