the antiques we love & loathe

When I asked Janet Gleeson (who, among other roles, works on the Antiques Roadshow), to find out which pieces the experts love and which they loathe, I had little idea of the floodgates I was opening. The passions and pet hates they have poured forth make for captivating reading. ‘ I hate Bernard Leach’ is the unbelievable declaration from one Roadshow veteran, while the work of Clarice Cliff comes under attack from another expert. But it’s not all about what they hate – find out what they love as well in ‘ The eye of the beholder’ (p71). On the subject of divisive design, there is one house this issue that is sure to split opinion. We have affectionately called it ‘The Spooky House’ on the team, and it is fitting…

my five favourite antiques in this issue…

RING-A-DING-DING This vintage beryl ring by Charles de Temple has a striking design that I completely adore. TRUNK POWER Our ‘Design Icon’ this month is the Louis Vuitton trunk, but these deep black cases are just as stylish. WOVEN HISTORY This is the oldest rug in the world – can you guess when it dates to? (Hint: it’s probably older than you think!) ON THE TILES I love the hypnotic pattern that these four Spanish encaustic tiles make. It’s almost psychedelic. EMERALD UPDATE The rich green upholstery on this beautiful French chair is on trend – but it will never go out of style.…

this month’s contributors

Marc Allum wrote ‘Wunderkammern’ A Miscellaneous expert on the Antiques Roadshow since 1998, Marc is an art and antiques journalist and writer as well as a self-confessed ‘collectaholic’. ‘I tend to love things that cause me to think deeply about their origins, their construction and their reason for being created. I don’t much like football programmes – collectors often have boxes and boxes of them and expect you to be really interested.’ Richard Kay answers your queries Director of Pictures at Lawrences Auctioneers, Richard has worked as an auctioneer, writer and picture specialist for over 33 years. ‘I love pictures that make the viewer ponder, artists like Stephen Conroy, Edward Hopper and especially Walter Sickert. I can sum up what I hate with a single syllable: dolls. Half-baked realism combined with peculiarly inert intensity of…

My Way to Style The feature on page 110 of your July issue, ‘4 ways to style’, prompted me to liven up my dining room with lots of the blue-and-white china I’ve collected over the years. I get daily pleasure from all the visual memories. Rosemary Williams, Cardiff Insight into LS Lowry In response to Martin Millard’s ‘What to sell now’ in your May issue, this is one of only 75 original signed lithographs of this image, and the closest state to an original – hence the high price. It was etched by hand onto a metal or stone plate before printing – a laborious process. No two editions are identical due to the hands-on process. Ganymed published 16 such Lowry images in editions of 75 in the late 1960s, so only 1,200 exist.…

if antiques could talk...

Weathering the years I am the third-generation owner of this barometer, which is, I think, early-20th-century and has survived two World Wars and countless house moves. It originally held pride of place in my grandfather’s hallway, as it later did in my parents’ home. Now it weather watches from my hallway as an old, dearly loved family friend – always there, always reliable for advice on whether a brolly or sun hat might be needed! Kate Poling, Devizes DO YOU HAVE AN ANTIQUE WITH A STORY? If you have a teapot that escaped a flood, or a locket that’s been passed down the generations, we want to hear! Tell us your antique’s story and take a good picture of it, then send it to us using the addresses opposite. If your piece with provenance…
