Noel Terry Collection of Furniture and Clocks

By Peter Brown MBE, former Director of York Civic Trust

Softback, 152 pages, 119 colour and 71 b/w illustrations
ISBN: 0 948939 01 X

A comprehensive guide to the late Noel Terry's superb collection of English furniture, formed while he lived in York (at Goddards, now owned by the National Trust).  Housed in Fairfax House, the collection has been described by Christie's as the finest private collection of its period formed in the last fifty years.

The main strengths of the collection are the mid eighteenth century mahogany pieces by the likes of Chippendale, Ince and Mayhew, John Linnell, John Gordon and William Vile.

An early oak buffet, superb walnut cabinets and a collection of important English Clocks add to the mix, making this not only a useful survey of English furniture 1600 - 1820, but also a fascinating insight into the mind of a twenthieth century collector.

A hardback version is also available for £25.
