SANTOS - London: Dealer in 15th to 19th century Chinese Porcelain
Since 1979 Mr SANTOS has earned a deserved reputation of being a leading dealer in Chinese porcelain of the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries in the international world of fine antiques first as gallery owner in London and now as a private dealer at international shows in the United States, China and Europe.
