RIP Margaret Thatcher

Canonbury Antiques would like to mark the sad passing of Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first female Prime Minister. Thatcher’s constituency was Finchley in North London, close to where our showroom is currently located. Indeed Martin Worster, MD of Canonbury Antiques, was lucky enough to meet the Iron Lady on numerous occassions throughout the 80s and 90s via his work with the Conservative Party.

We’ve included a number of photos of Martin Worster at an Antiques Roadshow event in North London with Lady Thatcher. We date the photos to the early 90s. Mrs Thatcher looks delighted as Martin shares his expert knowledge on antiques that local inhabitants had brought in to be evaluated. The event was a major success.

Looking at the photos you can see one where the factory stamp on a porcelain plate is being identified, another shows a bronze cherub statue being dated and in the last photo Martin is describing a trinket box. Thatcher’s expression in this photo is priceless.

Thatcher was Britain’s longest-serving Prime Minister of the 20th Century and a lady of formidable intellect, drive and talent. Rest In Peace Maggie.

You are viewing an absolutely wonderful dining set that consists of 10 Queen Ann style dining chairs in mahogany around a 14 foot Victorian style extending dining table. This set really is fit for a king – and Queen! I hope you will agree, this set looks pukka.

The table is an exender that works via a handle that slots in at the end and you turn and it extends – and you slot the leaves in according to your purpose. It\’s great for large dinner parties and can then be made smaller for daily use. Check out the lovely chunky legs in the true Victorian style – there is even a leg under the middle of the table. The crafting on this piece is superb – solid and sturdy, built to last and this will serve you for generations of use.
