An illustrated account of how Paul Reeves found lost treasures by pre-eminent British architects, artists and designers. These include A W N and E W Pugin William Morris, Walter Crane, Ernest Gimson, C.R. Mackintosh and Edwin Lutyens.
I began collecting furniture and related items over fifty years ago at the age of fifteen, opening my first antiques shop in Battersea Bridge Rd in 1976 dealing in objects from the 19th and 20th centuries. I was previously a successful clothing designer with premises on London’s Fulham Rd. Until the opening of the gallery on London’s Kensington Church Street in 1981 (now closed), I also designed interiors for select clients, echoing the decorative philosophy of the design movements which I admired.
Paul Reeves continues his business from his Cirencester premises. His focus is selling to private collectors and museums in the UK and abroad including the British Museum, V & A, National Trust properties, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Art, and the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
Court Barn is proud to support this event.
