John Walter is the managing director of William Walter Antiques Ltd. He is the grandson of our founder, William Walter, so the company is now run by the third generation of the family.
He began his connection with the company after studying Classics and Archaeology at university in the early eighties, and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Georgian silversmiths, makers marks and early silver. He is a respected dealer and is constantly asked by other shop owners for his opinion on their pieces.
John is fuelled by his passion for silver and will spend hours matching up cutlery for a client if they have lost an item or want to add extra pieces to their service.
