Witney Antiques October 2011 Exhibition: SAMPLERS - PRODUCTS OF A YOUTHFUL MIND - Duke of Brunswick

For almost 20 years Witney Antiques have held an autumn exhibition of exquisite English embroideries attracting visitors from as far afield as Japan, Holland and the USA. This year will be no exception with their exhibition, 'SAMPLERS - PRODUCTS OF A YOUTHFUL MIND'. Amongst the treasures on show are rare band samplers dating from the age of Charles I, map and darning samplers, and samplers worked by girls as young as seven years old. Truly the "products of a youthful mind".

Witney Antiques, established over 45 years, have a world wide reputation with a client base including private collectors and museums. Leading dealers in early English embroidery and samplers, they also carry a distinguished stock of 17th-19th century furniture and clocks.
Members of BADA, LAPADA, CINOA and CADA. Exhibitors at major London Fairs including the late Grosvenor House, BADA and Masterpiece.

Angela and Christopher Legge from Oxford are renowned experts in antique and contemporary carpets, textiles and tribal weavings. They travel extensively in Iran sourcing the rare and exotic. Another aspect to their business is their co-operation with Jan Kath, a leading designer respected worldwide, whose pieces can be custom made and have won numerous international awards. Amongst the rugs from Iran is a very beautiful Khamseh in soft reds and blues, dotted with flower heads which fits perfectly into the exhibition title 'WOVEN FLOWERS - ORIENTAL CARPETS AND TEXTILES' as does a striking 19th century Quashgai Gabbeh from the southwest of the country.

Christopher and Angela Legge specialise in antique and contemporary carpets and textiles of artistic merit from Europe through to Japan. Together the Legges run their gallery in Oxford and can be found at major fairs including Olympia and LARTA.

Witney Antiques October 2011 Exhibition: Legge Oriental Carpets
Witney Antiques October 2011 Exhibition: Heritage, Woodstock British Pottery Figures

John Howard of Heritage, Woodstock gives his exhibition of British Pottery Figures the intriguing title 'IF THESE POTS COULD TALK'. How many times has this been said, and here we are reminded of the blood curdling story associated with The Red Barn. A stunning Staffordshire Bull Baiting Group dating circa 1830 leads us to a sport long banned in England. Royal Figures with dark secrets and stories to tell stand proud amongst many rare exhibits.

John and Linda Howard founded their business 30 years ago specialising in 18th and early 19th Century British Pottery. They now have showrooms in historic Woodstock where they hold their world acclaimed stock of English pottery. They exhibit at major fairs in the USA and London including BADA and Olympia.
