Antique Textiles Company - Hampstead London

Last month I was in London once more. One of my goals for the trip was Antiques Textiles Company in Hampstead, Christopher Wilson-Tate's wonderful shop.


A few times I almost welled up a bit - in two small rooms were shelves from floor to ceiling filled with fantastic quilts.


Many were two hundred years old - from the Georgian (THE George III) era.
.

Anyone interested in beautiful textiles could spend many moments in awe here.


After an hour or so of interesting and enlightening chat with the nice owner, I headed off into the streets of London filled with impressions that will last a long time.

 
Please visit their website, if you cannot visit in person. You're in for a treat!
More pictures of this treasure trove can be seen at their Fb-site here.
Kathy visited some time ago, see her pics here.

Take care and have a good week.
