David Levi has been dealing in antiques for over fifteen years. His passion and ecclectic taste in antiques started when, as a schoolboy, he would spend his time and pocket money frequenting London's markets, often buying "treasure" which, at the time, was often regarded by others as junk.

David started trading at Portobello Road Antique Market; London's premier "antique university" where his passions were honed. Around this time, his father, Dr. Jonathan Levi, an enthusiastic collector of treen shared his knowledge and love of this very particular and tactile English genre.

Jonathan Levi died shortly after the publicaton of "Treen for the Table" (the only book featuring colour photos of treen in the last 25 years), leaving David to continue this passion. As a result, David is committed to continuing and expanding the awareness and collection of treen and folk art.
