Rogers de Rin

Listique’s Recommendation

We feel some specialist antiques dealers have a certain allure because you are sure to be seeing the finest examples of a particular artistic movement all in one place. Rogers de Rin is such a gallery. Focussing on Wemyss Ware, a 19th century Scottish pottery that has become highly collectable, the antique dealers is the prime destination for collectors across the globe. Visitors are certain to be impressed by the ornate designs on display, which have a ‘twee’ charm to them. The antiques dealer also stocks a fine selection of oil paintings.

She is undoubtedly the best known of all Wemyss Ware dealers and has written academic books on the pottery movement, raising the profile of Wemyss Ware in the UK and internationally. Notable Wemyss Ware collectors include the late Queen Mother and former US President Roosevelt. Rogers de Rin were the sole agent used for sourcing Wemyss Ware for the Queen Mother’s large collection.
