Richard Hosker, Owner - Whyte's Antiques

Richard qualified with London City and Guilds Certificates in Advanced Furniture Refinishing, Traditional Hand Polishing, Cabinet Making and Upholstery from City of Manchester College, England. He served his apprenticeship and worked for some years at Manners and Co, an upscale English fine furniture company.

Since those early days Richard has worked for 25 years restoring and conserving furniture for prestigious clients in the UK, Canada, Bermuda and USA.

Richard’s credits are certainly varied. He has completed work on furniture for both Sotheby’s and Christie’s, helped to create distinctive tables on display in Fortnum & Mason’s in London and completed a huge project to restore and conserve a beautiful 46ft Chippendale table complete with
46 chairs!

In his spare time, Richard – along with his Partner, Kelly - is a member of South Western Yacht Club and enjoys the thrill and escapism of sailing and racing their 34ft yacht.
