John Beazor Antiques was founded in 1875 in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. At that time Yarmouth was a prosperous fishing port and one of the centres of the herring fishing industry. John Martin Beazor, who was born in 1899, joined his father in the business in the early 20th century. During the Second World War Great Yarmouth was heavily bombed and John Beazor moved the business to the ancient University City of Cambridge and in 1940 set up shop in Regent Street. Building work during the war was quite a challenge so it was greatly to his credit that he converted 78 and 80 Regent Street into one property, adding to the façade a fine Georgian doorway from a bombed out merchant’s house in Great Yarmouth. After the War his son Keith joined him and they worked successfully together travelling to all parts of the UK and covering many thousands of miles annually, creating a major enterprise.John Beazor died in 1973, and shortly before that Keith’s son, Martin, had joined his father and they worked happily and effectively together until Keith’s death in 2007. Today, Martin is supported in the running of the business by Bridget Villatoro and John Coleman. We continue to successfully deal in fine English furniture, clocks and barometers, on which our reputation was founded. John Beazor Antiques has an unrivalled depth of experience and a knowledge of antiques which is second to none.The business has many private customers in all parts of the UK and supplies items to the trade and interior designers throughout the world. Amongst its clientele are the University and Colleges of Cambridge, many collectors and museums.Martin, Bridget and John value the relationships made in the course of business and take pride in the comment of a long-standing customer who said, “Beazors are nice people to do business with”.
