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 Northeast 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 and enthusiasm extended to the capital and resulted in frequent visits to Oliver Sutton Antiques where Damon would question Anthony Oliver on a number of occasions. His love of Staffordshire pottery and all that encompasses, along with his inquisitive mind and attention to detail continues to grow and has now been channelled into the creation of RTS Antiques, a vibrant business with a state-of-the-art viewing facilities for customers to enjoy all that RTS has to offer. He is committed to sourcing Staffordshire figures for pottery collectors and lovers everywhere, into the twenty-first century. He held the post of Vice President of The Staffordshire Figure Association between September 2017 to September 2020.
