We are very proud to be one of the the sponsors for the Show Stopper Trail which will be launched, via a reception, this evening at the Museum of Royal Worcester.   This evening around 115 guests will gather at the Museum to celebrate.  It looks to be a very special evening for all involved with Eleni going for a first hand look at our sponsored piece.

The trail will highlight twenty-five of the Museum’s most exceptional objects, their stories and diverse perspectives.  The objects and their stories will also be brought to life on film and social media by trustees John Sandon and Philip Serrell and our Museum Director, Sophie Heath.  John Sandon is a British expert and prolific author on ceramics and glass, and is best known as an expert on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. Philip Serrell  is an English auctioneer, antiques expert and television presenter. He has become a familiar face, especially on various BBC TV antiques programmes.

Our piece, pictured above, is a Royal Worcester Plate painted with sprays of fruit by the master painter Octa Copson dating to 1880.  When asked about the purpose and motivation behind being a sponsor Eleni highlighted that she is an Old Vigornian, having attended the King’s School, and has very happy memories there, in very close proximity to the Museum of Royal Worcester.

Funds raised by the Showstopper Trail will help the Museum look after, celebrate and engage people with a magnificent heritage – of local, regional and national importance given that it costs £568 each day to look after, and open, the Museum.  You can find out more about the Museum via: About | Museum of Royal Worcester
