ABOUT JEREMY H BEARDMORE, MAI am a qualified Antiques Professional and Consultant, with both a Bachelors degree (Honours) in Fine Arts Valuation, and a Masters. My origins are in Stoke on Trent, England, the home of Staffordshire pottery, and I believe this gave me an inherited interest in ceramics. I have a particular interest in the British Victorian period and am perhaps regarded as being an English Eccentric.
