I have worked in the world of art and antiques for over twenty five years, including sixteen as an auctioneer and director of Rosebery's in London. In 2005 I moved to South West France to restore a rambling 17th Century Chateau from where, along with my husband, Marc Allum, I hosted art and antiques holidays. After returning to the U.K. in 2012 I launched Hand of Glory Antiques, offering an eclectic mix of antiques, objects and......in the words of John Tradescant; 'anything strang' (sic).
I regularly source antiques for clients and interior design projects and would be delighted to discuss any specific requirements.
clients include Soho House Group, Cliveden House and numerous boutique hotels and private members clubs. Recent projects include the design and refurbishment of The Bull Inn, Limpsfield, Surrey.
I also write on the subject of antiques and design for various publications including
Homes & Antiques, Reclaim,
BBC Antiques Roadshow Magazine,
Period Homes & Interiors and was the contributing writer for the sculpture and textiles chapters for
Millers Art Deco
