July Newsletter 2010

During the recent heat wave filming took place for the video we are producing of a virtual tour of the galleries. The narration, by Lennox, leads you on a tranquil wander around the showrooms layout, whilst highlighting our wide-ranging stock of antiques and drawing inspiration from our interior designers. The tour will be available shortly by clicking the link on the Homepage.

We hope that the virtual tour will entice you to revisit us soon, but please remember that throughout August the galleries will be closed on Mondays.

Congratulations to Shaw Edwards Antiques whose late medieval carving of a mythical creature called a Pard, was chosen as one of the final fourteen objects to be exhibited at the recent London International Fine Art Fair at Olympia for the prestigious Lapada Objects of Desire competition.

Amherst Antiques are introducing a new feature to the website entitled Object of the Month. Each month a new piece of Tunbridge Ware will be chosen, the first being a rare example from Thomas Barton and one of the most important pieces from current stock, (this item is now sold). However, in the forthcoming months more modest items will be featured to cater for all tastes and pockets. If you would like to receive advance notification of forthcoming Objects of the Month, please send your email details to: info@amherstantiques.co.uk

John Morton Lee

On retiring from the Royal Navy in 1984 after forty one years in uniform, John decided to turn his lifelong hobby of collecting marine watercolours into a business. Today, on the verge of celebrating his twenty-sixth year as an art dealer, John has joined many old friends as a member of the collective at The Edenbridge Galleries where he concentrates on maintaining a sensibly priced collection of fine quality watercolours, with the emphasis on marine subjects. He is often at the galleries to meet clients on the first Saturday of each month.

One particularly fine watercolour painting by Thomas Bush Hardy RBA (1842-1897) is Mouth of the Thames, signed, inscribed and dated 1875. This early Hardy is preserved in exceptional condition in its original gilt mount and frame. 46cm wide, 28.5cm high.

The price of £2,750 includes a copy of John's recently published book on Hardy retailing at £35. Further copies of this lavishly illustrated book are available at The Edenbridge Galleries at a discounted price of £30. For further information see www.tbhardy.com.
