Jeroen Markies Art Deco specialises in Art Deco furniture and Decorative arts.
In 1985 Jeroen joined his mother Trudy Markies at her shop in East Sussex ‘Aspedistra’, selling silver, Victorian jewellery, and other items commonly found at a typical antique shop in the 1980’s.
Jeroen started buying and selling silver and glass from the early morning markets held in village halls around Sussex. From there he soon developed a passion for the design in furniture, and started his own business ‘Jeroen Markies Antiques’dealing in 17thcentury furniture through to late 19thcentury furniture. At the turn of the century, Jeroen found a love for Art Deco with its fantastic modern lines and light decorative veneers and in 2005 he changed the name of the business to ‘Jeroen Markies Art Deco’.
Today Jeroen specialises in Art Deco furniture, Art Deco sculpture and decorative arts selling pieces by Chiparus, Lorenzl and Preiss, furniture from the Epstein Brothers, Hille, Heal’s of London, and Glass by Murano and Réne Lalique, as well as various other collectors pieces.
Jeroen Markies studied History of Architecture, Art, and Decorative Arts at the Study Centre affiliated with Phillips Auction House and London University in 1990.
