July Newsletter 2011


As the London season of antique fairs comes to a close, we are proud to offer antiques buyers a more relaxed atmosphere in which to choose from a highly diversified and impressive collection of antique furniture and decorative items displayed on three floors. This summer, why not combine a visit to Kent's premier location for antiques with a visit to the nearby spa town of Tunbridge Wells or the historic houses Penshurst Place or Hever Castle?

Best Wishes from Lennox, Sue and everyone at the galleries.

Jupiter Antiques Exhibition

Jupiter Antiques would like to thank the hundreds of people who visited their hugely successful exhibition at the Four Seasons Hotel in London, bought from the catalogue or bought online from the website. This year the catalogue was expanded by 50% to 32 pages and packed full of highly desirable items. As in previous years not all pieces have sold, yet. The catalogue lives on, both on paper and on the website. If you like the look of something, it might be still available, so do contact Brad or Kevin on 01273 302865.

"I believe we may be the first antique furniture dealers in the world to have their own App," said Robbie Timms. "We are very excited, because it should revolutionise the speed with which our clients, collectors, interior designers, and those who like to surround themselves with fine furniture with history, can access what we have to offer any time, wherever they are in the world. They can carry our stock in their pocket!" You will now be able to click straight through to telephone or email S&S Timms Antiques, to ask further questions or buy. This new App will be rolled out for Blackberry, Android etc in the near future.

Tunbridge Ware Object of the Month July 2011

A Tunbridge Ware box veneered in coromandel, with floral mosaic to the frieze. The lid of the box, which is also inlaid with a floral spray, unusually lifts out and is also veneered on the underside with line inlay.

Attributed to Thomas Barton, it has been suggested this design was intended as a collar box. Alternatively it may have been a Barton design for a handkerchief box.

For more information on unusual Barton designs please go to Dianne's blog Outside Of The Box - http://www.tunbridgeware.org/p/blog

Jupiter Antiques
Jupiter Antiques was founded in 1984 by keen collectors with a passion for porcelain. Brad Dover and Kevin Pearcy started a part-time business selling at small local antiques fairs but soon progressing to larger fairs all over England. Now a full time business specialising in 18th and 19th Century English and Continental porcelain, they exhibit at quality antiques fairs all over the country.

They always have a fine selection of early English Factories; Worcester, Derby, Chelsea, Longton Hall, Bow, Liverpool, Plymouth, Bristol or Caughley, Limehouse or Vauxhall. They also stock fine signed Royal Crown Derby, Royal Worcester, Minton, and other items of quality from UK factories. Continental factories include Sevres, Mennecy, St. Cloud, Chantilly and Doccia. With current stock running to over 9000 items, there are far too many items to display on the website, so please contact Brad and Kevin for further information, they are always happy to meet clients at the galleries by appointment.
