Rose Ford has been involved in the antique world since she first began assisting her aunt with her appraisal business at ten years old. In school, she studied European art and history, then at sixteen took on an apprenticeship to become a tattoo artist with a focus on Japanese traditional art. Since then she has refined her artistic tastes and expanded her art knowledge working at the Huntington Library, Hughes Estate Sales and Auctions and finally bringing her to John Moran Auctioneers.
Rose started with Moran’s as preview staff in 2017 and in December of 2018 became our newest Client Service Representative. Her daily duties include acting as the first point of contact for John Moran Auctioneers’ valued customers by providing outstanding customer service at all times. Manage phones, general email box and online bidding platforms responding to client questions.
In her spare time she tattoos in Altadena, and adds to her ever expanding Japanese antique and jade collection.
