Objects of Desire and The Vintage Magazine are delighted to be working closely with Alastair Dickenson who is best-known for his appearances as the Silver expert on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. Alastair has created a superb collection of forty five original silver objects associated with the sports of hunting, shooting, fishing and polo.
Over several decades of dealing in Antique Silver he has often had enquiries about silver relating to outdoor pursuits. For this reason he has produced a book based on hunting, shooting and fishing but have included a small collection of items connected to other outdoor activities. These include finely modelled animals and birds that would make ideal presents but every piece in this collection has been chosen for its rarity and quality

or firstname.lastname@example.org for a catalogue and price list to see the complete collection and arrange to view the pieces.
Alternatively please telephone 00 44 1962 771336
Pieces range from £275 to £18,500, and would make wonderful Christmas presents.

Eric Clapton is best-known for his musical talent, but his investment skills would be the envy of most investment professionals. In 2001 Eric Clapton bought three paintings by Gerhard Richter for what was then the huge sum of £2 million (US$3.2 million).
In 2012 the rock guitarist sold one of these paintings for US$34 million at Christies, a sum that would go down in history as the highest priced ever paid at auction for the work of a living artist.

Grosvenor House Art Fair, founded in 1934, used to be the grand art and antiques fair of London, but, after a half century of glory, it steadily declined and, like a dowdy old dowager, finally gave up the ghost, in 2009.
A year after its demise, Masterpiece stepped nimbly into its place, but establishing itself in much more airy and spacious premises in Chelsea rather than the cramped and penumbral environs of the Grosvenor House Hotel.
This June, at the peak of the capital’s summer season, Masterpiece London brings together collectors, exhibitors and curators from around the world for an unparalleled show of fine art, antiques and design.
