Dealer information from the other side of the World!

Thank you to Mabel Jowsey, from Dunedin, New Zealand, who very kindly send us family history information on the antiques dealer John (Jack) Craggs – youngest brother of Mabel’s husband’s grandmother. John Craggs (1881-1969) traded from a shop at 3 High Street, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, and apparently he sold objects to the London trade, including Mallett….it’s great to know that the project is making connections over 11,000 miles away!

  1. Hello

    I am interested in learning about the agents/collectors who worked with Bluetts and also John Sparkes. Is anyone working on these dealers?
    Thankyou
