Easter Closing


I will be closing from tomorrow Maundy Thursday 1st April until Tuesday 6th April for the Easter holiday. I would like to wish you a very happy Easter break. I myself will be travelling up to my little seaside village in Northumberland, where I have the privilege of offering to my Parish Church a fine mid 19th Century silver thurible (Ebury Trading inventory seen below) in memory of my Grandparents. It will be dedicated and used on Easter Sunday which ensures that it is used for its original purpose for some years to come and not just becoming an object in someones collection.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries during this period.




Friend Of The Month, March – CBR Interiors


It has been a while since I added a ‘Friend of the month’, not through lack of friends! but more lack of time.

CBR provides quality design and highly efficient project management.  We understand the importance of clear communication as the foundation of a successful undertaking.  Our enthusiastic approach and hard work allows our clients to enjoy a process that should be fun instead of overwhelming.

The 2010 BADA (British Antique Dealers Association) antiques & fine art fair starts today (Wednesday 17th March) and continues until Tuesday 23rd. As usual it is held in a purpose built exhibition hall in the Duke of York’s barracks next to the Saatchi gallery, just off Sloane Square.

Over 100 of the country’s finest dealers will be exhibiting, in what is one of the country’s most important fairs.

There is an excellent restaurant and champagne bar throughout the fair located within the pavilion.
