Friends we have in Brisbane & Avoca lust to buy George Burrow’s house, north of the Derwent River . . .

They also introduced us to George Burrow’s Huon Collection in TMAG ages ago, but we managed to see it, this trip . . . met with Leo Schofield before he launched Flano’s new book

Barbara owns a 1cBC Bronze & Silver Roman Totem Ring from Mr Burrow’s Collection, sold to us by Warwick Oakman of Sandy Bay Hobart & New Town Park, Tasmania . . .

Had a cuppa with lovely Huon collector in Oatlands – Claire Pearce who showed us her new chairs and boxes

Visited the Drill Hall and Willow Court in New Norfolk, saw more Huon at Penny & Hayden’s new antique centre – even more at Allan & Linda Cooper’s cottage over from their extensive Woodbury renovations

I managed to photograph all the Huon items on show from the collection and have made a powerpoint – click on here. The download is 12.1Mb. Here’s a Huon Longcase clock at TMAG with a painted dial but in the style of a brass dial with a silver chapter ring from the early 1700’s (we would give it house room as Hazelton says)!:
