David Lackey

David Lackey...Owner, David Lackey Antiques and Art

David Lackey has been collecting antiques since the age of 6 and dealing since he was 12. Reared in west Texas and New Mexico, he began to buy antique toys, depression glass and assorted junk at garage sales, flea markets and small-town auctions in the mid-1960s. After graduating from Baylor University in 1979, he worked in retail sales until 1983, when he embraced antiques as a full-time business. From 1985-1986, he studied at the Christie's Fine Arts Course in London with a specialization in ceramics and has since become an active dealer in Houston, Texas. He is an obsessive collector of Spode porcelain, armorial ceramics and vintage Texas and Louisiana art.

\David Lackey Antiques and Art specializes in 18th and 19th century furniture, ceramics, decorative arts and 20th century regionalist art. Mr. Lackey is a member of the Houston Antiques Dealers Association, the Ima Hogg Ceramics Circle and the Acquisitions Committee of the Harris County Historical Society. He is often quoted in national magazines on the subject of antiques and collecting. Although he does not give written appraisals, Mr. Lackey does extensive consultation work for area appraisers and auction houses.

Mr. Lackey started a china and crystal-matching service in 1981 that has merged with partners to form eDish, with showrooms in Houston and Salt Lake City. They specialize in matching antique, discontinued and pre-owned fine china, pottery and crystal stemware patterns.
