We hope you are all enjoying a happy and prosperous beginning to 2023, with thanks for the ongoing support over the last two thirds of a century.
We are unsure of how 2023 will shape up for the antiques trade, but past uncertain times have invariably led to an increased interest in ‘tangibles’ and there is no reason to expect anything different ahead. You will probably see the larger dealerships and auction houses in particular to contract. The smaller family-run businesses with a long track record have always prospered, and will continue to do so. For us, this is reflected in repeat enquiries from our old (and new) valued clients whom we have looked after over the years.
In the months to come, as always, we will be scouting the whole country for interesting items. Remember not everything we buy makes it on to our site – some things get snapped up before we even catalogue them. So if there is something you are looking for, let us know.
We are currently working on a couple of furnishing projects in Lymington, S. Spain and New York. We have some great new finds, some of which should make it on to the website.
All the best, and look out for the green comet tonight. Last seen some 50,000
years ago. I wonder if Box House will still be running on the next approach?
John, Helen, Alex, Toto and Winnie Maas.
