Incidentally, Appley Hoare was one of the first clients of Antiques Web Design by ph9 (who run Antiques Boutique), back in around 2004 and Rob has many fond memories of sitting in the office of Appley's old shop on Pimlico Road discussing her website with her back in Rob's early days of building what is now Antiques Web Design and Antiques Boutique.
Number 3 in our trending searches for August 2020 is silver and silverware. There is a diverse range of silver and silverware available on Antiques Boutique from hundreds of dealers including silver jugs, antique silver kitchenware, silver tankards and antique silver wine accessories.
The George III silver cream jug, London 1795 featured above is from dealer Highland Antiques, who also have their website designed by us; www.highlandantiques.co.uk.
