So far three of those who have left Bourbon-Hanby in Sydney Street have signed contracts to stand at Antiquarius on the other side of the King’s Road. They are LAPADA member Robin Haydock, an exhibitor at the forthcoming Olympia, Vince Martin of Bellum Antiques, Fine Antique Jewellers, and Younger Antiques, Objets D’Art.

The management company of Antiquarius, Atlantic Antique Centres Ltd, stressed that, unlike Bourbon- Hanby, they would not be changing their emphasis to interior decoration but would be keeping to their traditional strengths – a wide range of quality antiques.
