Oral History Interview – Jerome Phillips

We interviewed Jerome Phillips earlier this month – of the well-known dealers ‘Phillips of Hitchin’, established in the 1880s, and still trading from the same address at the Manor House in Hitchin.  Jerome, photographed below is sitting in the main entrance hall at the Manor House.  P1000018

The firm of Phillips of Hitchin was begun by Jerome’s grandfather, F.W. Phillips in c.1884, and Jerome told us about the history of the business, and his experiences since he joined the firm in the early 1960s.  The interview with Jerome will form part of the oral history archive of the antique trade and will be available via the project websites later this year, so keep your eye on the developments as the project progresses.
