~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~RECENT UPDATES AND ADDITIONS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~3 JUNE 2020
Despite our shop on Portobello Road having to remain closed because of the Covid 19 pandemic we are still managing to trade from home and can now post items to customers. The beautiful DAUM artist's brush pot with the autumn birch trees acid etched and enamelled design has just been SOLD and posted to Japan and we are building up a collection of flower form wine glasses for a Belgium collector. Other collectors have asked us to reserve items for them until a time when they can view them in person.
We hope that you stay safe and please contact us if there is anything that interests you; if we borough it home from our shop then we can ship it to you.
28 APRIL 2020
Our shop on Portobello Road in WestLondon is of course closed at the moment because of the COVID 19 lockdown, but just before the lockdown I was able to bring much of our stock to my home from where I am still able to trade to a limited amount. Our main problem at the moment is that Post Offices in West London are all closed due to illness of staff and so it is difficult to ship items although this should improve soon.
We have recently ADDED a beautiful miniature GALLE cameo glass vase to the GALLE PAGE. The reason why this vase is special is that despite its small size, it displays the rare Galle technique of "internal cut back" with acid that removes the internal colour from specific areas to give a pure colour to the outside cameo layers. We have never seen this technique used on such a small vase before; it is usually reserved for the bigger display vases.
I hope that you are all well and keeping safe and I look forward to the day when I can once again meet you and show you our special pieces.l
Thank you for your custom and best wishes.
We are always happy to try and locate any special item that you might want to add to your collection.
In the last few months we have added several new items to the site and others to the shelves of our shop where we have been welcoming dealers and customers from Ireland, Japan, America, Australia, New Zealand, Italy , France, Germany, Russia and Scandinavia as well as our loyal Royal customers from the Arab states.
If you have not visited us yet we would love to show you our stock any Saturday in our shop in Roger's Gallery on Portobello Road.
It will be seen from this account of sales that we can't list all our stock on the web site pages and so it is always worth trying to visit our shop on Portobello Road in London, UK in ROGERS ANTIQUES GALLERY, 65 Portobello Road, London W11 (map) or contacting us to enquire about items that might interest you but are not displayed on the site.
You will see from this blog that many of our rare pieces sell to other dealers. If the 'trade' are buying our stock then collectors can be assured of getting pieces at very reasonable prices. Come and see us at Portobello Road any Saturday.
ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE PIECES ON THE WEBSITE ARE SOLD, WE ALWAYS HOLD A LARGE STOCK OF SIMILAR ITEMS AND WILL CONSTANTLY TRY TO UPDATE THE SITE WITH SOME OF THESE NEW ACQUISITIONS.
IT IS ALWAYS WORTH CONTACTING US BY EMAIL OR TELEPHONE TO ASK IF WE HAVE SOMETHING NEW OR SPECIAL THAT WILL HELP WITH YOUR COLLECTION.
