The start of this heatwave, which coincided with the opening of Masterpiece, featured some truly spectacular downpours. The thunderous drumming on the marquee roof and sound of waterfalls gushing down the sides caused some consternation. But, in the event, only a few splashes got through – onto the Riva Yacht stand – the one place they would do no harm!
On our ‘Jubilee’ stand we had more of a ‘slow burn’ with a steady flow of sales throughout the week, and others still being finalized as I write. Some sold items have featured in our book, these newsletters and our monthly blogs. They include the Winkfield oil of Greenwich, the giant clock with eight times zones, one of the Seddon and Morel tables, the Cowden Castle display cabinet and the ‘Fighting Temeraire’ chair’ (above).
