The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle

The Year of the Dealer trail at The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, concentrates on the antique dealers who helped to assemble to collections in the 19th and 20th centuries and are currently on display at The Bowes Museum.  The dealers include the antique dealers, in the 19th century, Tito Gagliardi, Harry Emanuel, and S J Phillips, and in the 20th century, Frank Partridge & Sons, Temple Williams, Asprey & Co, H. Blairman & Sons and W.F Greenwood & Sons.

The trails highlight 10 significant objects currently on display in the galleries at The Bowes Museum, telling the story of the objects through the dealers that sold them.

The trail will be downloadable and can be accessed on mobile phones - a weblink will appear HERE when the trails have been finalised.
