After the Army, a late-1950s European education, and a position as buyer and merchandise manager of china and glassware at Tiffany & Co. in NYC, Ron Schwarz moved to San Francisco, where we cofounded Ronald James, “the most unusual china store in America.” He went on to become head of interior design and furniture at the old Gump’s on Post Street until it was sold. Today Ron designs furniture, carpets, china services, and custom dinnerware for private clients. Still collecting and always upgrading, he’s on a perpetual search for the finest.
