This Autumn: Treen & British Folk Art
This autumn we are delighted to bring you a specialist auction containing 'The St John Perrott Stimson Collection of Treen & British Folk Art'
More details and further images to follow in the coming days.....
Originally from Leicester, the St John and Judith moved to the historic town of Pembroke in 1983. In 1986, they opened the private 'Museum of the Home' which was open to the public each summer season.
Over the years more than 70,000 visitors viewed their cucumber straighteners, Edwardian carpet sweepers, and all manner of quirky household objects from the 17th Century to the 20th.
The self-confessed hoarders began collecting household items after they married 50 years ago. Like many newly-married couples setting up home they were unable to afford new goods so sought cheaper items in markets and second-hand shops. And that is where it all started.
This autumn we are delighted to offer some of the artefacts from the Museum of the Home as well as a large number of items from the family's private collection. These include a wonderful collection of treen, Mauchline Ware, puzzles, games and curios.
