This year, in celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, Wick Antique’s stand at Masterpiece, and accompanying catalogue, will feature pieces with royal connections.
Monarchs though the centuries have influenced our nation through the Church, the Armed Forces, patronage of the arts and sciences and deep-rooted connections to many national charities. The overwhelming majority of powerful figures through the ages – from Kings and courtiers to politicians, scientists, artists and sculptors – were men. Women did not, as a rule, inherit titles and their property passed to their husbands on marriage. Nevertheless, Wick Antique’s are proud to also highlight the distaff side of the story in this Collection.
