Nick began his career in his native England in the late 1960's and brings forty years of experience in the antiques and fine art auction business. He emigrated to New York in 1979 and has pursued his career there as an auctioneer, appraiser, author, lecturer and antiques dealer. He is a former Department Head and auctioneer at Phillips and at Sotheby's in New York, and has organized his own auctions at several prominent auction houses including Doyle and Rago, where his annual events dedicated to the art of Lalique received great critical acclaim between 2000 and 2006. He also conceived and helped organize two of the most successful live auctions of sports memorabilia in the history of the hobby. He has held an annual exhibition and sale of Lalique glass hood ornaments at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance since 1993, and is considered this country's leading authority on the work of Rene Lalique. Nick is the author of three standard works on decorative arts which have collectively sold over 100,000 copies, together with scores of articles, and lectures widely internationally.  He has been a faculty member of Parsons, the New School for Design, since 1984, and has taught Luxury Marketing at Columbia Business School and courses on English and French furniture at the Bard Graduate Center.  He first appeared as an appraiser on 'Antiques Roadshow' for PBS in the second ever broadcast of the show, and has appeared regularly ever since, discussing ceramics, glass, silver and other decorative arts.
