Philip Astley-Jones

Philip Astley-Jones of Roger Warner Antiques, Burford, established 1936.

A conversation between Philip Astley-Jones and project research fellow Lizzy Jamieson.

Philip gave us some absolutely fascinating memories of his time with Roger Warner in his shop in Burford, Oxfordshire. Philip started with Roger Warner in 1965, and he gave us amazingly vivid descriptions of the day-to-day life in the shop, and Roger’s buying activities.

We are very sad to announce that Philip sadly passed away in August 2021.  Our very sincerest condolences to Philip’s family and friends.
