I have worked in the world of art and antiques for thirty years, including sixteen as an auctioneer and director of Rosebery's in London. In 2005 I moved with my family to South West France to restore a 17th Century Chateau from where we 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 that is strang' (sic).
I regularly source antiques for clients and interior design projects and would be delighted to discuss any specific requirements. Past 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, which recently won the Surrey Life '2019 Surrey Pub of The Year' Award.
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 (published Oct. 2016 ). I also lecture for clubs and societies.
