We've been busy this month at Antiques.co.uk. Recently Iain Brunt appeared on South African television discussing the service, and he's just had time to dash back in time to launch our new valuation service. In conjunction with Patrick Van der Vorst of Value My Stuff/Dragon's Den fame, the valuation service is independent, reliable and saves you the time you'd otherwise spend travelling to your local auction house for valuations. Why not try it out today?
With the royal event looming there's no better time than to search on Antiques.co.uk for all of your royal memorabilia. Can't find what you're looking for? Just save your search and we'll automatically email all of our sellers to let them know what you're looking for. If they have a matching item, we'll also automatically email you again when they upload their pieces.
Sellers - now's the time to get your catalogues updated and ready for royal inspection!
Eastern style meets Western low prices with this fabulous pair of ebonised oriental 19th-Century marble-top serving tables. At £1,450 plus delivery for the pair, they represent a rare treat for this price point.
Fine Cell Work www.finecellwork.co.uk is a uniquely creative charity that trains and pays men and women in prison to create professional tapestry and quilting in their cells. This is a key building block for their rehabilitation, giving them the hope and financial means to stop re-offending. The prisoner's work had been commissioned by English Heritage and the V&A Museum and the charity was recently chosen as a Times Christmas charity.
There will be an exhibition and sale of the prisoner's exquisite work - cushions, quilts, bags and gifts, at Stanford Hall, Lutterworth on Saturday 7th May, 10.30am-4pm.
At 12 noon there will be a talk "A Stitch in Time: the story of Fine Cell Work and embroidery in prison" by Yvonne Stone, one of the charity's volunteer teachers at HMP Gartree.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
