Welcome
First of all thank you to everyone who visited our galleries for 'A Walk Through the Garden of Eden'. We hope you enjoyed your time with us including the talks so well presented by Roger Platts and our own Lennox Cato.

We thought the showrooms looked especially spring like with a stunning contribution from Garden of Eden Flowers who supplied us with various show stopping floral arrangements. We were also delighted that Hansords Antiques from Lincoln joined us for the weekend and have decided to stay a little longer. They bring to the galleries an added dimension with scientific instruments as well as period English and continental furniture and works of art.

Now that we have just about recovered from our spring open weekend we are now preparing for Jupiter Antiques main summer event, The 8th Annual Ceramics Mayfair selling exhibition which is usually held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Mayfair. However, we are delighted that this year it will take place here in Edenbridge and will also, as before, be in collaboration with Mark and Sandra Diamond. From 4th - 6th June, you will be able to view and buy a wonderful selection of fine and rare porcelain objects especially acquired for this prestigious event. Each day will open at 10am and will carry on until usual closing times. Refreshments will be available and admission is free.

On Saturday 13th June, Dianne Brick from Amherst Antiques will host another of her Tunbridge Ware information sessions. This one entitled 'Tunbridge Ware Makers' will concentrate on identifying certain characteristics of the work of the main 19th century Tunbridge Ware makers. The session will start at 2pm with Dianne once again imparting her extensive knowledge to those particularly new to the world of Tunbridge Ware. There is no charge for this event but Dianne does need to know numbers so please notify us as soon as you can if you would like to take part.


Lennox Cato will be in Plymouth on Thursday 11th June for an Antiques Roadshow recording. This will take place at The Royal William Yard and everyone is welcome!

For the second year running Lennox and Susan will host their own selling exhibition entitled 'Dealing in Excellence Part II'. A private viewing will take place on Friday 26th June and the exhibition will run for the rest of the week. An accompanying catalogue will be available on request.

That is all our news for the moment but please feel free to call in anytime convenient to you, except Sundays, or attend any of our forthcoming events.

With our best wishes,
Lennox, Sue and all at the galleries.
