nealemalbert Posted June 18, 2014 Share Posted June 18, 2014 My name is Neale Albert. I have been purchasing the finest miniatures since the early days of the Kendinggon show. It is my impression that the number of makers if the very finest pieces, let's call them master pieces, today is way below what it used to be. When I started collecting seriously I would purchase the best pieces in the very few minutes (or even before) of the Kensington show. Then I started to commission pieces. From that period I have the finest pieces made by Sue Bakker, Galia BAZYLKO, Gail Bantock, Jill Bennett, Ian Berry, Paul Briggs, Judith Dunger, David Edwards, Barry Hipwell, Alan McKurdy, Pierre Mourey, Tricia STreet , David Ward ... The list goes on. Sure, there are still some people of that level still working. To name a few-- Mulvany and Rogers, James Carrington, Johannes Landsman, Jens Toro, Bill Robertson. I do believe that there was a golden age of fine miniatures which is now over, do others agree or disagree with me ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
