Damon lives with his wife Helen in Liverpool. He has five adult sons.
Damon is a master Cabinet Maker by trade and he uses these skills in his antique furniture restoration and bespoke cabinet making business (Liverpool Antiques).
Although Damon’s family roots are in the north east of England he spent a good deal of his youth in Chester, a city renowned for its wonderful half-timbered architecture, which 30 years ago was awash with antique shops. It is here that Damon spent many hours talking to and getting to know the many dealers in that City and learning much of what he now knows about Staffordshire pottery and in particular Victorian Staffordshire figures. This thirst for knowledge extended to the capital, and resulted in frequent visits to Oliver Sutton Antiques were Damon would pick the brains of Anthony Oliver on a number of occasions. His love of Staffordshire pottery and all that encompasses, along with his inquisitive mind has continued to grow. This has now been channeled into the creation of RTS Antiques, a new and vibrant business with state of the art viewing facilities, carrying forward a new vision for Staffordshire pottery lovers everywhere, into the twenty first century.
