The gallery is well known for its furniture stock including Art Deco and Arts & Crafts with pieces from Epstein, Heal’s, Waring & Gillow, Shapland & Petter and Hille.

The Masters look for archives relating to Art Deco and Arts & Crafts. Chrissie said: “We believe in accuracy in assigning attributions to designers and manufacturers and also because it fascinates us.”

She added: “We bought at a Woolley & Wallis auction artwork of the original 1930s designs created by Harvey Nichols for Marion Brownlie Blackwell’s Modernist home in Ealing.

“We also acquired separately an archive of correspondence between Mrs BB and various manufacturers and retailers of Art Deco furniture including Betty Joel and Harvey Nichols.”

The Design Gallery is at Unit 1a Starborough Farm, Starborough Road, Marsh Green, Edenbridge, Kent.
