Somerleyton Vase as seen on the Antiques Road Show
« on: May 16, 2010, 10:13:24 AM »
Hi Y'all,

new section opened on the Friends web site for museum aquisitions. First in there is the vase Andy talked about on the Antiques Road Show. Will be adding others as pics become available. Next up will be a vase by Jonathan Harrris.

The images are zoomable if you have Flash in your browser. The bottom right icon under the image will take you to a full screen view.

All the best

The Jonathan Harris vase is stunning, I saw it on Saturday when we were at BHGM.

Also worth noting that both these photos were taken by Denis through the display glass, so they scrubbed up good 'n proper! I now see the report for the Bead Day (no, not Bidet :24:) on 15th May is now posted:

The new web site is really making its mark, so congrats to all at the Friends of BH!
