July has been a busy month fine tuning our website. We are thrilled to become founder members of the new Lapada website which will be launched in the Autumn.
We have also joined NO1 Mayfair’s Website which is exciting.
We spent a day in Oxford visiting The Ashmolean Museum. Mayflower has a special connection to the museum:
Michael Wellby a very serious collector of early pieces, on his death donated a great part of his collection to the museum. In fact his donation is so great that they are dedicating a room to him, presently while waiting for the room to be finished, they have a large glass cabinet holding some of his unique pieces.
Michael was a personal friend of Christopher Hamlyn – partner with Susan Harrington-James of Mayflower Antiques.
In fact it was Michael that ignited Christopher’s passion in early pieces to become a dealer. The collection is certainly worth a visit if you are in Oxford.
HIS PIECES ARE TRULY MAGNIFICENT.
