The Malmesbury Friends of Dorothy House Hospice Care invite you to an evening of antiques appreciation at
The Old Hall, Badminton House on Friday, 19th March. The evening will start with a reception at which wine
and canapés etc will be served. This will be followed by an exposé by antiques experts of four or five items of
special merit and interest. The final hour will provide an opportunity for you to show your treasures or items
about which you have always wondered to the individual experts in the manner of the BBC Antiques Road
Show, although estimated values will only be given if you request it.

Experts will attend from major firms of fine art auctioneers and will cover ‘transportable’ items of furniture,
ceramics, silver, pictures and clocks. We hope you will wish to submit items – although this is by no means a
prerequisite for attendance – and in this connection please contact David Royle as per the details on the
attached sheet. There will be a ‘safe’ room in which items can be left during the reception.

Tickets are £25 each, and admission is by ticket only. Please complete the application form below and return as
directed to Dorothy House Hospice Care. Those wishing to submit items for consideration by the various
experts should follow the instructions on the attached sheet.

We hope you will join us for an entertaining evening in support of the work of Dorothy House Hospice Care.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Although we usually know where our possessions came from and how they arrived in our homes, there
is often doubt as to the provenance or the background of some items. Now is your chance to correct
this situation.

You are warmly invited to bring items for appraisal by the fine art and antiques experts who will be in
attendance at Badminton House. It may even be that you would like to test the experts to see if their
conclusions accord with your own! In either case, we hope you will enter the spirit of this occasion by
bringing along items for our wizards to look at.

The categories of goods which we will be considering are:
                       Transportable furniture
                       (eg. Sewing or Work tables, individual chairs, small tables or pot cupboards,
                       even barometers but not triple break-front bookcases!)

                       Ceramics
                       Silver
                       Pictures, drawings and prints
                       Clocks

There will be a separate secure room (with official supervision) for items to be left in whilst you are enjoying the
reception.

In order to have some system to the evening, we ask that you let us know what items you will be bringing in,
so that we are not flooded with Victorian pin cushions but no silver items at all! David Royle is organising this
part of the proceedings. We recommend that you contact David by telephone or e-mail in the first instance to
check the suitability of your proposed item. Apart from letting us know what is coming in, he will (hopefully)
be able to give helpful advice if required. Once you have contacted David, please complete the form below and
return it to Dorothy House.
