Big Changes at Portobello Road
Many collectors like to pop into Portobello Road on the Saturday before the Scientific Instrument Fair, but when they come in April they will find the whole of Lipkas Arcade in Westbourne Grove shut down for renovation. Four dealers in scientifc and pharmaceutical antiques have been forced to move out. Fletcher Wallis has moved to the basement of the Admiral Vernon Arcade, Andrew Crawforth has moved further along Westbourne Grove to 292, Lawrence Cooper, The Antique Dispensary Ltd, has moved up the Portobello to the Chelsea Arcade, just down from Vic Burness, who is still in Roger's. I'm not sure yet where Michael Forrar, Principia Fine Art is moving to, but more of this in future posting.
