ABOUT LEE HARDCASTLE

Lee Hardcastle has a strong passion for the finer details in antiques and their design, his interest in the antiques world started almost 35 years ago from Northern England where he originally hails. Lee developed an excellent grounding in the Antique world through researching, trading and working at antique fairs frequented by an industry established group of peers who possessed an excellent antiques pedigree. Having worked across an extremely broad range of antique pieces, it became apparent quickly that Lee’s greatest interest was in the higher end stylish furniture market, Lee quickly built a strong reputation for holding higher calibre stock that he traded and exhibited throughout this market.

Collecting, and trading in Natural history and Fine furniture, Lee would source furniture to order for his clients through a network of contacts he possessed in England and further afield. Lee would always align himself with his client base, his knowledge of his clients taste, requirements, quirks and most importantly budget would ensure he would often identify pieces of furniture for them before they had even requested that he do so.

Lee’s knowledge, reputation and passion for fine antiques has never wavered, he prides himself in providing his clients with excellent service and the ability to source an array of objects of merit for their consideration. From humble beginnings as the owner/occupier of a shop in Queen street, Woollahra, Sydney,  Lee dealt in Taxidermy,  Natural History and fine furniture. These early dealings gave the local market a strong sense of the type of antiques dealer he was.
