Museums and Mentors, Scholarship and Friendship | Stories from the world of fine ceramics dealing

The French Porcelain Society has always valued the scholarship and insight of dealers who contribute so much to its publications, events and lectures. Martin P. Levy of H. Blairman & Sons, leads a discussion on the influence of dealers past and present with four long–standing European ceramics exhibitors at Masterpiece London: Michele Beiny, Errol Manners, Adrian Sassoon and John Whitehead. Their stories speak of inspirational and sometimes eccentric mentors: museum curators, collectors, auctioneers, and forebears in the antiques trade. Join us for some thought-provoking conversations on the art of dealing!

- Moderator: Martin Levy (Director, H. Blairman & Sons Ltd)
- Michele Beiny Harkins (Director, Michele Beiny)
- Errol Manners (Director, E&H Manners)
