posted in: Hive News | 0

The Shop Honeypot Collection goes on show for the first time in 20 years. The general public will be able to view and buy these rare honeypots starting February 9th at the prestigious and beautiful surrounding of Fortnum & Mason, Piccadilly London.

The exhibition of honeypots will ‘bee’ on show for a period of 5 months, however the collection will be ever changing as the pieces on show sell and new ones are added. The Shop Collection consists of over 700 rare honeypots some dating from the 1700s up to 2000. Each piece has been catalogued with a history of the maker and a brief comment on the piece itself. This is a rare opportunity to see such a collection and learn about the history of the great British and International porcelain makers of the past & present.
The exhibition is part of the QEST, Fortnum & Mason event to stage an in store exhibition to celebrate the handmade crafts created by Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust scholars in honour of the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
