About Antiques at York's Tenement

Doris Urquhart and her partner, Christopher Richardson, have a gallery at Yoxford in Suffolk, between the coastal resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold. They specialise in folk art and naïve paintings, complimented by painted and country furniture, pottery and metalwork.

Doris began trading in antiques at Alfies Antique Market, London, in 1980. She continued to trade from there and a shop opposite until 1989. Having completed her training as a barrister, she then practiced at the bar, before returning to being a full time antique dealer in 2007: this time supported by Christopher, also coincidentally an ex-lawyer whose career began with antique dealing.

Throughout her time at the bar, Doris actively continued to buy and sell antiques, adding to her experience and her private collection.

Doris brings to her business a lifelong passion for the unpretentious yet often sophisticated and amusing qualities to be found in folk art, naïve paintings and primitive pieces, combined with a natural eye, developed over 30 years of dealing and collecting, for distinguishing the very finest examples.

The original state and condition of the object or painting, its surface texture and unusual style and character are her chief priorities in selecting what to buy. Her love of exceptional, homely things and her enthusiasm for seeking them out is constant and enduring.

Elected to BADA membership for Folk art; naïve and primitive paintings.
