Our building here in Battersea is now to be clad in scaffolding, as renovation works begin.
After 37 years we are carrying out remedial work, creating a new shop front and upgrading both the showroom space and the residential accommodation above. So for the first time in our professional lives, the shop will be temporarily closed.
Both footfall at the shop and visitor numbers to our website have been steadily increasing over the past couple of years and we believe that this is a great time to invest in the future.
We sense that antiques are once again being more widely appreciated and sought after, as concurrently our own specialist areas of the vernacular, naive and folk art have been increasingly embraced by the mainstream art establishment and developed into a significant and active international market. So in order to remain at the cutting edge, we have decided that now is the time to invest and develop.
We will continue to run the business, as normally as possible, from our design studio nearby and plan to re-open at the beginning of May with our Annual Folk Art Exhibition.
Recent acquisitions, news and updates will be regularly posted onto our Website.
All mail and telephone calls will be automatically re-directed during the course of the works.
We have just returned from a very upbeat and successful 2015 New York Winter Antiques Show and after our Folk Art Exhibition in May, we will again be showing at Masterpiece London for the fifth consecutive year.
2015 is set to bring exciting times.
