AFTERNOON VISIT - Ronald Phillips

Monday, 1 July 2019 2pm - 4pm 26 Bruton Street, London W1J 6QL

Ronald Phillips was founded in 1952, a period when war-time austerity was coming to an end, and a demand for antiques grew steadily.  It was at the Chelsea Antiques fair at Chelsea Town Hall that Ronald Phillips had his first antiques show and the tradition of exhibiting at antiques shows carries on today.  The first showrooms in Old Brompton Road were opened later that year.  The company retained the same showrooms until 1974 when Ronald Phillips Ltd moved to larger more prominent premises in Bruton Street in London's illustrious Mayfair.

This afternoon visit includes a tour of the Gallery, Library and research office as well as the Restoration and Upholstery workshops.  Attendees will receive a complimentary Ronald Phillips catalogue of previous years and also current catalogues will be available for purchase.

COST: £28 (including tea/coffee)

LIMIT:  15

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS:  Friday, 7 June 2019
