Two visits to Amsterdam where we found two beautiful early pieces of glass. One engraved wine glass 17 century from the Engels-Lange Collection. One wine glass – 2nd half of the 16th century. A broad shallow bowl and a hollow cigar shaped stem. Illustrated in a painting by Veronese in the late 16th century. Red wine was drunk in these glasses. Images are soon to be uploaded to our website.
From our trip to Maastricht in March we purchased two Mother of Pearl pieces. A Mother of Pearl Casket – Mexico 17th century and a Mother of Pearl Holy Communion Box – Spanish, Colonial 17th century. Both pieces will be on our website soon.
Work on our new website has been an on-going project, Zara at Social Me has been working closely with our new web developer. We now have a fully responsive Mobile website which is optimised for SEO and ease of use for our customers. We continue to grow our presence on Social Media and sharing are pieces with the public.
We also visited two of the big London Fairs Olympia and Masterpiece. Although not exhibiting we enjoyed having the time to appreciate the fairs and visit many of our friends in the trade. Both fairs had a wonderful vibe to them and we will be sure to visit again.
