Jon is commissioned to complete a full history of and catalogue the contents of Witcham Hall in Oxfordshire.
He has a particular interest in the furniture and pottery in the house. During the listings, Jon made an incredible discovery. A pair of green and white Wedgewood Jasperware vases, dated around 1870. The podcast reveals the story behind the design of the artwork which depicts ‘The Dance of the Hours.’
The Makepeace family owns Witcham Hall: they have possessed it since 1927. As already mentioned Jon is commissioned to complete a full history, and catalogue the contents of this most substantial property. Although the building will never be open to the public: they feel those who have an interest in the magnificent building should have an opportunity to read a catalogue and book which will be the result of Jon’s work.
The podcast was recorded at a busy Victoria Market in Nottingham: My apologies for the quality of the recording.
See You Soon
