We are pleased to advise that Mayflower has now been accepted as a member of BADA. We remain longstanding members of LAPADA, CADA and CINOA.
Our aim has always been to present quality, rare and interesting items from our period, and we present below some recent acquisitions which have been added to our website:-
For some time now we have been expanding our collection of Iberian and Colonial items, and will be showcasing these in a new Catalogue entitled ‘Treasures from the Iberian kingdoms and their Colonies‘.
This collection will be part of our display at the CADA fair later this year. The fair will be held again at Compton Verney, Warwickshire and will run for three days, Friday 17 th , Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November 2023. Tickets and more details will be posted nearer the time.
We should like to extend our best wishes and thanks to all our clients and friends.
We are delighted to present our new Catalogue ‘The Art of Drink’. This showcases a rare and interesting selection of early silver drink related vessels of various origins, styles and types. [Click to view pdf copy] Hard copies of the Catalogue are available on request. Just email your name and address to us and we shall be pleased to send a copy to you.
Over the past two years, we have continued to expand our stock, and to work with The Antique Marketing Company, and the 2Covet, LAPADA and CADA websites to promote it.
A particularly refreshing aspect to the present market is the re emergence of the various fairs, following the lifting of Covid restrictions. We shall be visiting the TEFAF fair at Maastricht at the end of June, to renew contacts and hopefully source some new acquisitions.
Mayflower will be exhibiting at the CADA fair to be held at Compton Verney, Warwickshire, Thursday 13th October to Sunday 16th October inclusive. Tickets will be available in the next few weeks, so please put the dates in the diary and we shall of course be delighted to welcome you.
We are pleased to report that the CADA fair held from the 14th to the 17th October 2021 at Compton Verney, Warwickshire was successful for us, resulting in a number of sales. The new venue at Compton Verney was excellent, and we would expect this to become an annual fixture. So, for those clients who were unable to make it this year, do make a note to see us there next autumn.
We are currently working on a new Catalogue to be entitled ‘The Art of Drink’. This will showcase a selection of rare and interesting 16th and 17th century drinking vessels, and will include several new pieces. We hope this will be ready within the next two or three months. We continue to work with The Antique Marketing Company, and the 2Covet, LAPADA and CADA websites to promote our stock.
We send all our clients, contacts and friends our very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
