Many of us arranged and rearranged our mantelpieces, kitchen shelves and desks, adorning them with gatherings of objects that brought us comfort – trinkets from foreign travels, gifts from cherished friends, treasures inherited from relations and mementoes from parties past. Some shared photographs of these pleasingly curated arrangements on Instagram, where they are known as ‘shelfies’. But for a small group of British artists it was business as usual: they had long been painting and drawing carefully assembled vignettes of objets trouvés and decorative antiques, their work united by a shared appreciation of vintage pieces.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>

<p>‘It’s about capturing memories,’ says ceramics collector and artist <a href=”https://www.instagram.com/sjaxelby/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>SJ Axelby</a>, who is known for creating colourful, finely drawn mixed media work inspired by her own collections as well as beautiful interiors she admires. ‘I always bring something back from my travels and my shelves become time capsules,’ she says,<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>likening them to Victorian cabinets of curiosity. ‘The shelfie is a modern way of doing that; it’s a mini museum of special objects – things that have sentimental if not great monetary value.’</p>

<p>Artist <a href=”https://www.unitycoombes.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Unity Coombes’</a> playful shelf portraits often feature painted <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/antiques/collecting-guides-antiques/design-icons/discover-the-exotic-history-of-the-chinese-ginger-jar/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Chinese porcelain</a>, Japanese tea bowls and plates inspired by the Eastern Art collections she cares for in her other role working at <a href=”https://www.ashmolean.org” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum</a>. ‘Objects that have existed for a long time have an extra quality about them,’ she says. ‘It’s not about finding very expensive or rare pieces. It’s that other people have handled them, they come with histories. For this moment they’re in my hands, but I hope one day my son will handle them and many after him. When I come across something in a charity shop that’s 200 years old there’s always that ‘wow!’ moment, knowing it has survived all that time. It’s like finding treasure.’</p>
<p>Inspired by 20th-century female British artists working in the still life tradition, Unity’s colourful works are known for their fine detail. ‘I’m drawn to pattern and surface decoration, particularly of animals, birds and figures. Even when I paint animals they tend to be inspired by ceramics, by Staffordshire or Meissen pieces. I like the naivety of them, and the characterful decoration.’</p>

<p>Another artist noted for her detailed depictions of antique ceramics – often a hand-painted cup filled with a posy of seasonal flowers – is Yorkshire-based <a href=”https://debbiegeorge.bigcartel.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Debbie George</a>. ‘I’ve just sourced the smallest brush I can, a ‘000’, so things are about to get even more detailed,’ she quips when we speak. Growing up with an artist mother and a grandmother whose house had ‘pottery, antiques and paintings everywhere’, she knew she wanted to be an artist from the age of eight. ‘There was always a pot, always flowers,’ she says. ‘I love the shape of a flower or the pattern of a cup and want to put them together. Granny always had huge vases of flowers and Mum was a gardener, so there were always fresh flowers in the house. I loved going home and finding a little posy of flowers by the bed. Now they’ve both passed away the memories and emotions attached to those things are even stronger.’</p>
<p>As Debbie’s followers know, she is an avid collector of ceramics, with a special interest in antique children’s ware that was prompted by the purchase of a tiny cup from <a href=”http://richardscottantiques.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Richard Scott Antiques</a> in Holt two decades ago. Painted with the motto ‘Present for a Good Girl’ it was the start of an ever-growing collection. ‘It’s amazing what they put on nursery ware – poems, educational motifs and so on – but the naivety, the detail and the small scale also appeal to me.’</p>

<p>Printmaker and painter <a href=”https://www.angielewin.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Angie Lewin</a>’s fascination with ceramics began with a cup. ‘When I was about four years old I visited an elderly relative who had a collection of ceramics and she gave me a small Spode coffee cup,’ she remembers. ‘It was hand-painted with a shepherd, and a little flock of sheep. I was fascinated by it.’ That appreciation of decoration remains with Angie today. ‘If I see a coffee cup or vase, I’m drawn almost more to the design than the form,’ she says, ‘though with antiques I also like the history. I get very absorbed in the stylisation. The pieces I own often have botanical imagery on them, stylised by an artist in whichever era they were working. I like to think about how they chose to do it – I’m intrigued by their thought patterns.’</p>
<p>Angie’s characteristic nature table depictions pair antique ceramics with hedgerow and seashore finds foraged from the hills around her Speyside home, the nearby Moray coast or the landscapes she walks while visiting <a href=”https://www.stjudesprints.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>St Jude’s Prints</a>, the Norfolk-based printmakers’ gallery she set up with her husband Simon in 2005. Her work tends to start with something she’s been sketching that day – fritillaries from her garden, or a Staffordshire figure of a kilted Highlander. Then she scans her studio to find other items. A little lustre mug might catch her eye, or a feather, and pieces develop as she puts things together on the mantelpiece. ‘Evolving jumble is probably a good way of putting it,’ she jokes, though the end result is anything but jumbled – precise, detailed work that reflects her deep horticultural knowledge.</p>

<p>Bristol-based artist Joanna Wright jokes that ‘pots and pears seem to be what I do.’ A long-established exponent of the shelf-based still life, her paintings, prints and textile work often include pieces from her collection of antique and vintage ceramics, and it’s the everyday nature of these objects that appeals to her. ‘They’re the sort of things people might relate to,’ she says. ‘There’s nothing exotic or fantastical about them. You can get endless permutations with an apple and a pear and a cup, and you’ve always got those objects to hand.’</p>
<p>Crediting her mother with sparking her interest in collecting – ‘we were always whizzing off to junk shops and jumble sales growing up and I’ve inherited that gene’ – she now has a diverse collection of antique cups. Most are early 19th- century English teaware but she also owns some treasured pieces hand-painted by her mother-in-law, Star Wedgwood (a designer-decorator for <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/antiques/collecting-guides-antiques/design-icons/design-icon-wedgwoods-jasperware/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Wedgwood</a> in the 1930s) and some mid-century pieces.</p>
<p>One of Joanna’s favourites is a three-handled 1940s jug with a wiggly leaf pattern and, crucially, a bright orange stripe at the bottom. ‘I’m glad to see colour is coming back,’ she says. ‘It cheers us up. We need orange and turquoise in our lives.’</p>

<p>The work of Brighton-based illustrator and designer <a href=”https://www.emilymaude.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Emily Maude</a>  is diverse and constantly evolving, but she has won a recent following for her imagined tableaus based on what she calls her ‘dresser of dreams’ – collectable ceramic pieces set against antique fabrics and wallpapers. Vividly painted – sometimes on paper, sometimes using a reverse glass technique – her shelfie-style montages often include <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/antiques/collecting-guides-antiques/the-history-of-staffordshire-dog-figurines-and-how-to-build-your-collection/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Staffordshire dogs</a> and pink lustreware.</p>
<p>Colour has been a relatively new development for Emily. ‘I guess those jewel-like shades come from wanting to find joy in a bleak time,’ she says. But <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/antiques/collecting-guides-antiques/the-history-of-staffordshire-dog-figurines-and-how-to-build-your-collection/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Staffordshire dogs</a> have long been a source of inspiration. ‘They’re part of the country’s folk art heritage. Like lustreware, they were made to be affordable but, although they were mass-produced, each piece is slightly different and has its own character because it was hand-painted. It intrigues me, when I pick one up, to think: “Who would have<br />decorated this?”’</p>

<p>For painter <a href=”https://www.lottiecole.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Lottie Cole</a> it’s not the question ‘Who painted this?’ that inspires her, but rather ‘Who might have owned this?’ She approaches her interiors-based paintings by thinking about the imaginary person who might inhabit the room she is creating. She then lets herself go on an imaginary shopping spree, she explains. ‘I don’t own very much of what I paint. Painting my own house doesn’t excite me. It’s the thrill of the chase, the conjuring up, the thinking: “That parrot would be hard to dust!”’</p>
<p>The parrot in question appears in one of a series of mantelpiece paintings Sussex-based Lottie has recently been working on. ‘I didn’t want to do straight still lifes but I was attracted to mantelpieces because they’re the stage sets of people’s lives,’ she says. ‘I listened to a radio documentary discussing mantelpieces as shrines to people’s aspirations, how they hold the things we love, the invitations to events. They’re a reflection of how we’d like to be seen, perhaps, rather than how we really are.’</p>
<p>Her paintings, which often incorporate antiques, are similarly an attempt to describe the idea of home. ‘Women are so good at making a home,’ she says. ‘Often you’ll have a beautiful room, but it’s not perfect. There’s that hideous heirloom you’ve kept because you love it. That interests me. I like to imagine the story behind each item I paint. I have a pair of ceramic pheasants on my mantelpiece that I found in a junk shop. They really shouldn’t go in that room but they mean something to me and I love them, and somehow they work.’ She finds immaculate interiors hotel-like and too perfect. ‘If you look at my paintings you’ll see that small tables may be squished up too close to a sofa, or a chair may be blocking something else. But that’s how we live,’ she says.</p>

Here it brings contrast to decorative pieces with Morris &amp; Co references and simplicity.” /> <p><a href=”https://www.vam.ac.uk/articles/arts-and-crafts-an-introduction”>Arts and Crafts</a> designer <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Morris”>William Morris</a> may be a national treasure today – the fabrics and wallpapers designed both by him and by his company <a href=”https://www.stylelibrary.com/morris&amp;co/”>Morris &amp; Co</a> are regarded as agreeably familiar and comfortable. Yet, in his time, Morris was a revolutionary, and his products were purchased by trend-setters and forward-thinkers who wished to challenge convention.</p>
<p>The Victorian fashion was for chintzes or formal patterns, machine-printed using harsh, chemical dyes. Morris, a self-taught designer, worked English flora and fauna into layered patterns, and printed them by hand using natural dyes.</p>
<p>The organic nature of his prints gives them more appeal today than ever before. Trends this season hark to the natural and rustic and, when you’re providing a backdrop to much-loved antiques, soft Morris prints are ideal – allowing woods and stones in particular to sing out.</p>
<p>The great thing about Morris patterns is that they can be used anywhere. Designs range from simple, one-colour prints to intensely ornate showstoppers – something for every room.</p>
<p>Here, we explore stylish ways to incorporate his timeless prints into even the most contemporary of homes.</p>
<h3>Mix and match patterned swatches to create a colourful display</h3>
<p>Morris &amp; Co, the firm that Morris launched in 1875, reproduces Morris designs that are faithful to the originals, alongside new adaptations. The designs complement each other beautifully so try creating a moodboard and pinning a variety above your desk.</p>

<h3>Use William Morris prints to unite a collection of antiques</h3>
<p>Why not choose a Morris pattern to provide the perfect backdrop to a collection of antiques? Theme your pieces roughly by colour (such as on this chest of drawers) and pick out a shade and print that will bring together what seem to be otherwise disparate finds.</p>

<h3>Keep your scheme contemporary by layering William Morris prints</h3>
<p>Contrasting patterns in fresh, complementary colourways provide an ideal setting for dining, especially a pretty spring lunch. Layering prints keep the scheme contemporary. Make sure you choose tones to suit your china.</p>

<h3>Go bold with a William Morris block print</h3>
<p>The block-printed feel and simple enlarged scale of the ‘Woodland Animal’ pattern from the ‘Archive’ collection from Morris &amp; Co gives these archive prints a youthful appeal. Adding striped and smaller-scale leaf prints creates an informal scheme. Why not try a large-scale floral against a neutral scheme to give the print maximum impact? Pull out key colours and add texture with beautiful but useful accessories.</p>

Here are some of our favourite places to buy covetable antiques, enviable vintages and beautiful handmade home accessories from the comfort of your own living room…</p>
<h2>Where to buy affordable antiques and art</h2>
<p><strong><a href=”https://www.tat-london.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Tat London</a></strong></p>
<p>Charlie Porter started Tat four years ago as a side project to her job as an interiors stylist. She loves junk shops and car booting so, to indulge her passion, she decided to open an online shop selling what she describes as ‘low brow’ pieces. ‘I never think I specialise in anything, I buy what I like,’ she says. ‘But it would seem I like a lot of 20th-century European art and any sort of sconce – it can range from 17th-century to the 1990s. As long as you can put a candle in it, I will buy it.’</p>

<p>Scroll through the squares of Instagram seller Elizabeth Kemp’s account and you’ll find all manner of antique and vintage decorative items, from fabrics to pictures and china. Pretty vintage tins feature heavily and so too do charming antique prints. After working for several years in the art world in London, Elizabeth moved to a cottage near Frome in Somerset with her husband and decided to set up a business from home. Her grandmother is an antiques dealer and her mother (Ros Byam Shaw) writes about interiors so antiques and decorating run deep. ‘I am selling things found by my mother and my grandmother as well as by me. The only criteria are that they are things I love and would want in my own home,’ she says.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>

<p>Founded in 2006 by mother and daughter Denise and Samantha Allan, The Shop Floor Project brings together the work of brilliant makers and artists. The duo expertly curate a website full of objects worthy of keeping and passing down through generations. We’re in love with Francesca Kaye’s Delft Woman plates and Raphael Balme’s The House &amp; Garden Party collection of oil paintings, not to mention the superb Christmas decorations.</p>

<p><a href=”https://www.parna.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”><strong>Parna</strong></a></p>
<p>We have always loved Kath Griffiths’ well-chosen selection of beautiful folk textiles from Central and Eastern Europe. You may have stumbled upon her exquisite stands at antique textile fairs. She doesn’t have a shop but she does sell through her website. Click from piece to piece of vintage dyed indigo linen through to hemp grain sacks, then cushion covers made using Hungarian and Transylvanian embroidery – and much more.</p>

<p>Cary Whitley has recently changed roles from a vintage fair organiser to an Instagram dealer. A collector for over 20 years of all things vintage with a particular interest in textiles, buttons and trimmings, she now runs her own business buying, selling and sourcing vintage and antiques. Her online shop sells everything from haberdashery, fashion accessories and jewellery to handbags, ephemera and pictures.</p>

<p>Michelle Mason, who runs real-life vintage store Mason &amp; Painter on Columbia Road in east London, home to the famous Sunday flower market, was quick to act when she saw the spring lockdown looming and launched her online atelier two days before businesses had to temporarily shut up shop. She now ships worldwide. Michelle’s carefully chosen selection of stock mixes French vintage cafe furniture, homewares, mirrors, paintings and prints with industrial salvage, ceramics and a large display of plants. Her Instagram account is a good substitute for visiting the real shop as it features dreamy photos of styled spaces in the store.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>

<p>Those who know about Bristol-based Cart-House, run by Ben and Cathryn Bailey, keep an eye on their Instagram account for updates on new pieces added to the site. The couple sell<br />a range of 19th to 20th-century furniture from all over Europe, specialising in cabinets, French armchairs, rugs and paintings that get snapped up quickly.</p>

<p>When fairs and markets came to a halt due to Covid restrictions, Keeley Rosendale, who runs Vintage Home Show events, decided to help fellow dealers who did not have online selling platforms by setting up the Discover Vintage Marketplace. The site brings together fashion as well as pieces for the home, including mid-century dining chairs, G Plan and Ercol furniture, bamboo accessories, sunburst clocks and much more.<i><br /></i></p>

<p>A good stop on your virtual antiquing jaunt is the Vintage Boathouse, which has some strong pieces of well-priced furniture, namely mirrors, farmhouse tables, and chests of drawers sold from a barn in Petersfield, Hampshire.</p>

<p>Once you’ve lost yourself for a while poring over Emily Sizer’s beautiful Instagram account, you can click through to her shop to browse vintage jars, pots, buckets, bowls and more. Emily was born and brought up in Bakewell and spent many happy days scouring brocantes in France with<br />her parents. She chose not to go to university and now runs her business from the area, mainly selling French brocante finds, ranging from confit pots and vintage French china to wire baskets and galvanised tubs. ‘I love the sustainability of reusing and finding new purposes for time-worn pieces that have age and history to them,’ she says. ‘I’m greatly inspired by the countryside around me and can always be found foraging or at my allotment where I grow flowers, which I use in my photographs and on my stalls.’ <i><br /></i></p>

<p>Colourful wallpapers and richly patterned textiles not only give a room character and life, but they also act as foils for fine furniture, decorative antiques, vintage pieces and other collections you might have.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>
<p>Textile designer <a href=”https://mollymahon.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Molly Mahon</a>, known for her exuberant block-prints, explains the enduring appeal of layering designs and colours: ‘There’s something nostalgic about using lots of pattern,’ she says, recalling the <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/interiors/decorating/how-to-use-william-morris-prints-to-brighten-your-home/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>William Morris</a> sofas at her childhood home. Frieda Gormley of House of Hackney thinks layering pattern on pattern and embracing colour is a wonderful means of expressing one’s individuality. ‘I see pattern as a chance to imbue a space with personality,’ she says.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>

<h2>Where to start when mixing print and pattern at home</h2>
<p>Many interior designers begin by selecting a primary fabric, which they then layer with more simplified versions of the design.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>
<p>Fabric and wallpaper designer <a href=”https://www.charlottegaisford.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Charlotte Gaisford</a> says she always chooses her main fabric first. ‘Once I have my showstopper design I can find other fabrics to combine with my choice,’ she says. It amazes her that people focus only on choosing one fabric for a room. ‘It’s important to consider all the soft furnishings: cushions, <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/interiors/decorating/how-to/10-ways-to-add-personality-with-upholstery/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>upholstery</a>, window seats, and so on. It would be boring if you used the same fabric for all of these. You need to think about the<br />whole scheme.’</p>

</section><h2>Always consider the scale of the prints and patterns that you choose</h2>
<p>Interior designer and broadcaster <a href=”https://www.sophierobinson.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Sophie Robinson</a> recommends ensuring there are plenty of prints in varying sizes in the mix: from slim, ticking stripes to oversized florals. ‘I tie these together with a tight colour palette,’ she explains. ‘Often, I’ll start with a hero fabric like a detailed chintz and from that spin off the colours into stripes, geometrics and other florals.

<h2>Observe how patterns behave on different materials</h2>
<p>‘The thing to understand,’ says interior decorator and antiques dealer <a href=”https://www.robertkime.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Robert Kime</a>, ‘is that on a fabric you won’t always see pattern the way you see it on a wallpaper. Patterns on wallpaper are viewed flat, so they have a different effect and impact than fabric, which is often gathered.’</p>
<p>Although it breaks the traditional rules of decorating, and takes confidence and a good eye, top-to- bottom entirely matching schemes are having something of a moment. This approach not only makes a serious statement, but it can result in a wonderfully cocooning effect, which is especially good in a bedroom or bathroom. ‘I’m a<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span>great proponent of covering all the surfaces of a room – walls, ceilings and upholstery – in matching wallpaper and fabric to feel enveloped in the most cosseting way,’ says <a href=”https://www.soane.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Lulu Lytle of Soane Britain</a>. <a href=”https://www.houseofhackney.com/uk/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Frieda Gormley</a> is also a fan of this ‘surround-sound’ look. ‘Our approach is totally fearless,’ she says. ‘But if you’re on a budget, just wallpaper the ceiling and paint the walls – the effect will be dramatic, unexpected, and utterly mesmerising.’</p>

<h2>Combine patterned wallpapers and textiles for a harmonious look</h2>
<p>The real secret to combining a number of richly patterned wallpapers and textiles successfully, Frieda says, is by ‘creating beauty and harmony through a cohesive colour palette<br />in each room. Print-on-print looks great when the tones are similar. Alternatively, you could use the same print in contrasting colours to create depth and interest, say by toughening up soft pink with petrol blue or black.’ She also suggests picking out the tonal highlights in a print and painting woodwork the same shade.</p>
<p><a href=”https://mollymahon.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Molly Mahon</a> suggests choosing a selection of colours that are uplifting and to simply shrug off any so-called rules about colour combinations. ‘Some people can take colour more than others,’ she says. ‘I can live comfortably with lots of colour. I love red and pink. People say certain colours clash, but do they? Do they clash, or do they sing?’</p>
<p>If you keep differing patterns the same colour, you can clash these with bolder colours elsewhere in a room, says Charlotte Gaisford. ‘Although my drawing room has lots of pattern, I actually used a fairly simple concept. I chose contrasting colours of green, red and gold for a strong, dramatic effect, but I put together six different patterned fabrics in the curtains, cushions and lampshade, using the same colours.’<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>

<h2>Use different textures to add depth to a scheme</h2>
<p>Texture is another part of the puzzle when playing with pattern, and it is the key to layering and essential for adding depth to a scheme. ‘It’s always good to try to incorporate patterns of different textures, such as weaves, heavy linens, stripes and florals,’ says interior designer <a href=”https://www.pennymorrison.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Penny Morrison</a>. ‘I always try to include some vintage textiles, maybe on the cushions or<br />on a single armchair.’<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>
<h2>Mix and match patterned accessories for an eclectic look</h2>
<p>Accessories such as cushions and lampshades also allow for experimentation without a hefty price tag. ‘Pops of pattern and colour make a huge difference,’ she says. ‘This can be patterned lamps, or lampshades, cushions and rugs over the back of a chair or sofa. I like vintage Swedish rugs in particular, but any rug can pull a room together and they are so easily changed.’ <a href=”https://www.robertkime.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Robert Kime</a> agrees. ‘We start every project and room with the rug and<br />go up from there. An antique rug can carry a space and provide a kind of base – colour is more directional, but a rug fully sets the tone.’<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>
<p><a href=”https://mollymahon.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Molly Mahon</a> finds that people become braver and bolder as they begin to introduce more pattern to their interiors. ‘We always suggest that you start with a cushion or two<br />and build from there. Then add a lampshade, which will add instant interest. It’s a good way to adjust to living with more pattern and colour.’ <a href=”https://www.charlottegaisford.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Charlotte Gaisford</a> heartily agrees. ‘Add pattern slowly, and enjoy shopping for the different elements. Make the room an experience in its own right.’<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span></p>

Whatever your lodestone happens to be, it’s often the thrill of the chase that drives us to want to acquire better and rarer examples. This month we celebrate this universal passion and meet six collectors whose delights range from antique porcelain to typewriters via vintage garden tools, taxidermy and jelly moulds. We also track the sale of exquisitely crafted pieces belonging to a keen appreciator of ‘extreme Georgian’. After running out of room in his Spitalfields home, he had no alternative but to sell 332 items of period furniture, art and objets. Our five houses this month are all beautiful in their individual ways, from a chateau in the Loire to a Georgian manor in Somerset. And, if you’re dreaming of tropical climes, we take you on a virtual sun-soaked tour of the Isles of Scilly.</p>

</section><h3>What’s the history of maps?</h3>
<p>To hold a 16th-century map in your hands is to be drawn into an era of discoveries and danger, of exploration and exploitation, and of unparalleled excitement in the advances of mankind. Here, art, science, geography and culture combine in a spectacular and unique way. ‘Antique maps vividly and graphically chart European man’s growing knowledge of the world,’ says Philip Curtis of The Map House. ‘They are one of the most direct ways of seeing their creators’ world view.’</p>
<p>The golden era of cartography began in the mid 15th century with the rediscovery of Ptolemy’s Ancient Greek Geographia. This coincided with the invention of movable type printing, which enabled maps to be reproduced more easily and circulated widely. This was the Age of Discovery, in which European sailors left for uncharted waters and, in wave upon wave of expansionism, ‘discovered’ the New World.</p>
<p>From the early 16th century, improved geographical instruments and methods of survey allowed large areas to be mapped more accurately than ever before and, back home, the map makers enjoyed a boom. In 1507 Martin Waldseemüller’s immense world map was printed, the first to name ‘America’ (after accounts by the explorer Amerigo Vespucci) and the first to show North and South America clearly separated from Asia. Gerardus Mercator, cartographer and globe-maker, published his famous world map in 1569, drawn to what was later known as the Mercator projection. And in 1579, Christopher Saxton’s atlas set a standard for maps of England and Wales that was unrivalled for almost two centuries.</p>
<h3>How were maps and globes first created?</h3>
<p>The distant origins of antique maps can be found in 15th-century Italy. ‘The very first printed map was made in Bologna in 1477, using copper engraved plates,’ reveals Philip Curtis, Director at <a href=”http://www.themaphouse.com/”>The Map House</a> in Knightsbridge. ‘It wasn’t showing contemporary knowledge – it was recovering ancient knowledge that was already known to the Greeks and Romans.’</p>
<p>The Ancient Greeks created the first examples of globes, albeit celestial ones. The first terrestrial globe may have been made as far back as 140BC by Cratos of Mallos. We don’t know exactly what it depicted as the Greeks were only aware of a small part of the planet. The earliest surviving terrestrial globe was made by Martin Behaim in Nuremberg in 1492: it is believed to have inspired Christopher Columbus to sail west for the Orient.</p>
<p>Many map makers also produced globe gores – specially printed tapering shapes that wrapped around to form a sphere. Globe production, often of pairs showing both the earth and the heavens, continued throughout the 16th century. Initially, possessing a globe was a status symbol for the very wealthy but gradually, as hand-painted wooden globes gave way to printed, paper-covered spheres, they became more and more widely available. By the 19th century, pocket globes had become a popular accessory for the middle-class gentleman.</p>
<h3>Who are the key map makers to look out for?</h3>
<p>The 17th century saw a continuing development in geographical knowledge, and map makers kept pace. Many of them were based in Amsterdam, a reflection of the Dutch domination of world shipping routes. The great makers include Willem Blaeu and his son Johannes, Jan Jansson, Frederick de Wit and Jodocus Hondius, who provided maps of all kinds – from sea charts to town plans – to satisfy constantly growing demand. Major works by such key names are rare and expensive. In May 2008, a single 1664 world map by Johannes Blaeu that shows California as an island – a map maker’s misconception for much of the 17th century – was sold at Sotheby’s for £17,300. A year earlier, an 11-volume Atlas Major dating from 1665, also by Johannes Blaeu, sold for £264,000.</p>
<h3>Why do you sometimes see blank spaces on antique maps?</h3>
<p>The science of map making was inextricably linked with the artefacts’ beauty, whether in earlier woodcut prints or, from around 1550, fabulously detailed copper engravings. ‘Map makers were aiming for a combination of artistry and accuracy,’ says renowned dealer Jonathan Potter. ‘Accuracy was relative because at the time people didn’t really know whether something was three miles or five miles away.’</p>
<p>Gaps in knowledge left blank areas on maps, which were unhesitatingly filled in with images of mythological creatures, heraldic devices, compass roses, flora and fauna and ‘native’ inhabitants. Elaborate cartouches giving the title, the name of the cartographer and a dedication were common. Topographical details often included a swirled or stippled sea, shaded hills, and castles or church spires to indicate towns. These were all produced by the most highly skilled draftsmen and artists of their day and reflected the fashions of the age.</p>
<h3>How much does it cost to buy an antique map?</h3>
<p>It’s possible to buy an antique map for as little as £15 and you may even come across one for even less at a car boot sale or in a charity shop. Around £100-£250 will secure a good map of an English county by Robert Morden, a popular 17th-century publisher and cartographer. For a similar price, it’s possible to purchase an 1851 country map by London publisher John Tallis.</p>
<p>Based on his world atlas and issued to commemorate the Great Exhibition, they are considered to be the last great series of decorative maps. By this time, mapping was a technically demanding skill and modern maps were required to be increasingly utilitarian – though some would say none the less interesting. Certain collectors even specialise in 19th- or 20th-century maps, such as those of American roads or the London Underground.</p>
<p>Single European or British maps by the Blaeu family can cost less than £1,000, while a good world map is likely to be £1,500 or more. Globe prices are much higher, a reflection of the smaller numbers in which they were produced. ‘Although globes from the 1920s or 30s might cost £300 to £700, anything earlier than the 20th century will cost something in four figures, if not five,’ says Philip. Indeed, a pair of late 17th-century globes by renowned Venetian maker Vincenzo Coronelli sold at Christie’s in December 2007 for £58,100.</p>
<p>From world maps, town plans, sea charts, celestial maps or curiosities such as maps that satirically depict countries in the shape of people, the potential map collector has a wealth of distinct areas to choose from. Antiques Roadshow expert Clive Farahar explains that most people start with a map that features where they live or somewhere they have visited. ‘The lovely thing about maps is that they are very useful things with which to decorate a room and to display your own part of the world. And their values don’t seem to come down, so they do it all,’ he says.</p>
<p>Caroline Batchelor, of the International Map Collector’s Society (IMCoS), has been collecting antique maps for 40 years. She’s amassed hundreds of examples, mostly showing places that she and her husband have lived, from the Philippines to Africa.</p>
<p>‘My earliest map dates from about 1540, up to a 19th-century one of Sudan,’ she says. ‘I try to stick to Africa now but, if I see an attractive map of somewhere else, I may not be able to resist it. I have them scattered around the house but keep most of them in a plan chest. They also make wonderful presents – they have such visual appeal and although I am not terribly academic about the way I collect, researching is half the fun. Collecting has definitely enriched my life.’</p>

<p>Antique maps, framed and hung on the wall, can provide a striking evocation of world history, a reminder of family background or simply a memento of a happy holiday. As with paintings, smaller maps look best in groups using coordinating frames, while care must be taken that very large maps do not dominate a room. Older maps were printed in black and white, and then sometimes hand-coloured before being sold; some were coloured later.</p>
<p>Jenny Harvey, another keen collector, has hung some of her 100-plus maps up the stairwell of her three-storey house. ‘I have a mixture of coloured and uncoloured,’ she explains. ‘It’s not as gaudy as if they were paintings, so it works well.’ She has been collecting for 21 years, starting with an impulse purchase of a map of Somerset, where she was born. Since then she has continued to collect maps of the county and has added town plans of London, where she lives now. ‘I am typical in that respect,’ she says. ‘I don’t collect in a technical way but in an emotional way – I want examples that appeal to me. Having said that, if you learn a little more about maps, you do get more out of looking at them. I love antique maps because of the stories they tell about history and geography and people and places.’<br />John Ogilby, 1600-1676</p>
<p>Scotsman John Ogilby, publisher of the first modern road atlas, was a man of many talents, whose life was a series of dramatic lurches from riches to poverty. He became a ‘sworn viewer’ or surveyor of the City of London after the Great Fire of 1666. This led to his most ambitious and successful venture: mapping the roads of England and Wales. In 1674, he received the title of ‘His Majesty’s Cosmographer and Geographick Printer’ and, the following year, his Britannia was published. It was the first national road atlas of any country in western Europe, the first to use a uniform scale, of one inch to a mile, and the first to establish the now-standard length of a mile as 1,760 yards. The atlas was an immediate commercial success and much-copied by other map-makers. Sheets from Britannia are widely collected and can be bought for less than £300 each. A first edition of the entire atlas was sold at Sotheby’s last year for £11,875.</p>
<h3>How to tell if an antique map is an original</h3>
<p>‘In the map trade, from the earliest times, a print made from a particular woodblock or copper plate has been regarded as “original” and, until that block or plate was destroyed, “originals” could be printed from it,’ write Carl Moreland and David Bannister in Antique Maps: A Collector’s Guide. The blocks or plates could be used for a century or more, during which time details could be added or deleted. Some prints could be black and white, and others coloured. A strong, clear impression suggests an early edition. As to how many of each map were printed, it is almost impossible to say, and just as difficult to know how many have survived. Moreland and Bannister point out that an edition generally consisted of a few hundred examples, compared to the 68 million Penny Blacks that were issued in 1840. Buyers should be aware that both valid reproductions and forgeries are widely available and, if in doubt, consult an expert.</p>

Image courtesy of Barker and Stonehouse” /> <p>Perfectly proportioned, with plump cushions and upholstered in a fetching fabric choice – nothing makes an antiques-filled living room sing quite like a beautifully crafted sofa. And now, family-owned furniture retailer Barker and Stonehouse has collaborated with antiques dealer (and star of Quest TV’s Salvage Hunters), Drew Pritchard, to design a collection of British-made sofas and chairs that fit the bill perfectly!</p>
<p>Drawing on Drew’s passion for antiques and heritage designs, his collection brings together decorative elements from a range of historic periods – from <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/interiors/bridgerton-how-to-create-a-regency-look-at-home/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>English Regency</a> to the 1960s. The range includes 10 different designs, including sofas, armchairs and footstools, which are available in an array of fabrics, such as dramatic velvets and heritage-inspired florals.</p>

<p>‘While the collection naturally alludes to seating designs of the past, I was also keen to widen the field of historical reference,’ he continues. ‘For example, the arm of the Harling sofa features a curved top which takes its cue from the windows and arches found in architecture from the <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/antiques/quintessentially-georgian-the-key-movements-in-georgian-design/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>English Regency period</a>, which are themselves modelled upon much older classical styles from ancient Greece and Rome.</p>
<p>‘I like to mix styles and periods; they often work really well together and it’s a great way of creating a space that captures what you’re about. That’s what I wanted for the collection too – for people to be able to pair these sofas, chairs and footstools with everything, from the ultra-modern to the antique.

<p>‘The way that we decorate our homes has changed,’ explains James Barker, Managing Director at Barker and Stonehouse. ‘It’s no longer about buying a matching suite of furniture from one collection, it’s about choosing individual pieces that work for you, and Drew’s approach to buying, and now designing furniture, echoes this mindset perfectly.</p>
<p>‘With more than 30 years’ experience in the antiques trade, his knowledge of historic styles, combined with his passion for good design, brings something unique to the collection that can’t be found elsewhere.’</p>

<p>On 23rd June 1995, Drew Pritchard, the star of the Discovery and Quest’s <em>Salvage Hunters</em>, moved into a Methodist chapel in the Conwy countryside in north Wales. He was then just 25 years old and it was the first property he’d ever owned. ‘Oh, it was a total mess,’ he says. ‘Completely derelict. There was no water, no drains, no planning permission. A friend told me I’d be better off pulling it down and starting all over again.’</p>
<p>But he wasn’t to be put off. ‘It’s the highest church in the valley and was built in 1812. I was determined to turn it into a home even though I had no money at all. My bath, for instance (a Victorian claw-footed affair) came from a friend who was using it as a planter in his garden. I bought it for 80 quid.’</p>

</section><p>Over twenty years later – with the chapel now completely renovated and every corner crammed with lovely things – and the man the press calls the ‘junkyard genius’ has now sold this property and moved elsewhere. ‘I’m not sentimental,’ he explains. ‘It’s a mistake to be sentimental in my business. You end up hanging on to things you should be selling, with the result that you make no money at all.’</p>
<p>Pritchard’s Conwy chapel was filled with all manner of extraordinary antiques, including a lavatory that once belonged to Mick Jagger (Pritchard bought it from his plumber). A beautiful late-Victorian painted screen with a large flamingo on it (discovered in the kitchen of a house he was clearing, where it was stuck between cooker and fridge to protect the latter from spitting fat). But above all, a vast amount of <a href=”https://www.homesandantiques.com/antiques/divine-design-how-to-collect-ecclesiastical-antiques/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>reclaimed ecclesiastical pieces</a>: crosses, statues, pews, kneelers, even an altar. ‘In the last 20 years, I’ve cleared more than 500 religious buildings. I own so many kneelers, I hardly know what to do with them. When my kids were small, they would use them to climb up to the dining table,’ he laughs.</p>

<p>Pritchard grew up in Glan Conwy. His father was a sign writer. ‘The family would go away in our VW camper van and, from the age of eight, my parents would take us around museums. It was my father who taught me how to look at things. Even as a young child I couldn’t understand why people would buy new things. I used to think, “Are you mad? Why not buy something old?”’</p>
<p>He left school as soon as possible and was apprenticed as a stained-glass restorer. It was this trade that led him, eventually, to the antiques business. He began working for himself at 23. His clients now include Ralph Lauren and the chef Marco Pierre White. He also sells via his <a href=”https://www.drewpritchard.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>website and North Wales antiques showroom</a>.
