Objectionable and rude
Dec 2019
Bought an item without looking as closely as I should have. Later noticed it was damaged, took it back next day, reaction was rude and unhelpful, you should have checked, sold as seen, no returns . I Suggest you avoid this place.

Hi... We are sorry you have had a bad experience with an antique shop in Keswick but we are positive it was not our shop... We have not had a request for a refund for well over a decade and we have a zero tolerance of damage or restoration within the shop and do not knowing stock any item thus.We would happily rectify any problem with an item that had slipped through the net which includes black light testing on ceramics... We can only ask that you come back or get in touch and tell us what you have bought and we can take it from there.We have tried reaching out to you repeatedly via trip advisor contact and you have so far not engaged with us which is disappointing and prevents us from solving any possible issues. Kind regards Bri...

KSIA Specialist
Mar 2018 • Solo
Keswick School of Industrial Arts (KSIA) played an important role in the Arts & Crafts movement and taught metalworking skills in the town for 100 years. This dealer has probably the finest selection of the school’s products that you will see anywhere and he is knowledgable too. He has the most complete set of design numbers that I have come across and any aspiring collector would do well to pay a visit. Handwork like this is not cheap however and you will only find top quality pieces here. Also stocks glassware and other antiques. Two minutes from the Moot Hall, in the centre of this historic market town.

Found this shop and well worth a visit
A good range of interesting items to suit all tastes
We bought a good vintage Margaret Tarrant print as we collect them and old large examples are difficult to find

If you are interested in Keswick's history, Price Walker must not be missed
Feb 2017 • Friends
From April 1894 until 1984' Keswick School of Industrial Arts was a centre for training local craftsmen, producing high quality articles in copper, brass, silver, and stainless steel.

Many of these items, stamped 'K.S.I.A' make their way to and from Price Walker Antiques.

It took me more than 20 years to discover this gem.

Visitors to Keswick, interested in antiques/history must not miss this

A Real Treasure Trove
Mar 2016 • Couples
Had the pleasure of visiting northern parts of The Lakes these last 4 years and no visit seems complete until we have dropped in to see Brian at 'Price Walker Collectibles' in Keswick.
Two things come across, firstly his passion for the things he finds and puts in the shop, secondly, the range of items is surprisingly large and thoughtfully arranged by maker. So for ceramics, glassware and metalware, if you are anything like us you'll find it hard to walk out of the shop without buying some things.
We have had the joy of adding to our collection of ceramics and at the same time ignited an interest in fine Italian glassware ..........
I hope you enjoy going as much as we do.

A ceramic lover's dream
Mar 2016 • Couples
Selection of beautiful, quality ceramics and metalware. Realistic prices considering the quality and condition of the pieces.The major difficulty was choosing what I wanted to purchase. Staff were very patient with a dithering customer and ready with any advice and information about their wares.I will definitely be a repeat customer.
