Antiques With Gary DonFeatures

Dear Gary

Can you tell me anything about a picture I have had for twenty years, I purchased in a charity shop, it is 1 of a single edition 850 copies ,it is email Chamberlain dove cottage signed by artist and fine art trade guild. 

Thank you Christine 

Dear Christine,

Thank you for your email.

Your print is a picture of Dove Cottage, the home of William Wordsworth in the Lake District.

Many paintings have been made of this cottage over the years, and thousands of prints have been published. However yours has the Fine Art Trade Guild Stamp on it and is a limited edition signed by the artist. The Fine Art Trade Guild print standard sets a maximum edition size of 1950 copies per size, but recommends that editions are kept below 850 worldwide. Most limited editions are signed and numbered in pencil by the artist to guarantee you won’t see the same image on other merchandise.

The Guild blind stamp on prints makes a difference to their value. On a Lowry print the value can rise by £2000 – 3000.

Your print is not a popular subject with the youth today but should still raise a healthy profit on your charity find. We would estimate it at around £50-100.

 Dear Gary

I wondered how much if anything this clock is worth.

Thank you,


Dear Joan,

There is good news for you.

This clock is a Tudric Arts and Craft desk clock. 

Tudric is the name for pewter ware made for Liberty & Co.  of London by W. H. Haseler’s of Birmingham. The designer was the famous Archibald Knox.

Many different designs were made and they are very collectable.

This beautiful small example would sell between £400-450 at auction

A truly lovely item to own
