April and May have passed by in a blaze of glorious sunshine and we are looking ahead to the beginning of the Fair season in London – which means Masterpiece for us. This always requires a considerable amount of pre-planning but this year we have a larger stand in order to showcase our single themed collection ‘Britain at Sea from Nelson to Churchill’. In addition, after a gap of nearly a decade, we have produced a 120-page colour catalogue describing 72 of the pieces in conjunction with Martyn Downer, author of ‘Nelson’s Purse’ and ‘Nelson’s Lost Jewel: The Extraordinary Story of the Lost diamond Chelengk.’
