The Geffrye Museum is one of my favourite museums. It has displays of English urban domestic interiors from 1600 to the present day in a series of period rooms. Primary collections of English furniture and panitings. There is a walled herb garden and a series of period gardens.

I would be delighted to give an opinion on your shawl. If you first e mail me a photo or send one by post, I can determine whether it would be worth while your paying for this service. I make a charge of £30 $60 per item. I need good clear photographs. A photo of the whole item; close ups of front and back details, together with measurements and condition. Hold the shawl up to the light to see holes, mends etc. Send your e mail address and I will reply with the date of the item, information and value. If you wish to have a valuation for insurance purposes I would be pleased to give you one. See Opinion section.
