More Oral History Interviews – Daniel Bexfield

We are having a busy few weeks with the Oral History Interviews – as well as our recent interview with Lennox Cato, we’ve also completed an interview with the well-known Antique Silver specialist Daniel Bexfield. The interview was conducted by our Project Lead Volunteer, Chris Coles, at Daniel’s shop in London.

Daniel and Chris had a fantastically interesting discussion on life as an antique silver dealer – and Daniel recalled his early career as a dealer in the antique markets at Bermondsey and Portobello Road, before he established his first permanent shop in the famous Burlington Arcade in the West End of London. The interview, as with all our project interviews, will soon be available via the project website – just need to edit them etc….

We now have an expanding range of interviews with specialist dealers – antique furniture dealers, antique textile dealers, antique silver dealers, antique glass specialists, wine antiques specialists….we’re on the hunt for an antique ceramics specialist at present!

Thanks again to Daniel, and to Chris, for such an interesting interview.
