We Offer Unique and Time Managed Antique and Collectable Buying Trips to England and a Few Other Choice Locations. Our Trips Run 7 to 10 Days w/Full Venues
We offer Antique buying trips to England via British Airways out of BWI (Baltimore-Washington Airport). We also offer assistance for those wanting to depart in other areas of the United States. Once in London we will stay at the Royal National Hotel and work our way to and from the show markets that are designated for each trip. Our buying trips run from 7 to 10 days and often include alternative trips to Paris, Czech Republic and other little hot spots. For those wanting to tour the outer towns and villages of England we have special train passes which can be used. These train passes are at an additional cost but are way far cheaper then paying for a train once in the U.K. This offer is given by the tourism council of the U.K. and well worth the small expense added to your total. Prices per person are based on double occupancy. If traveling alone please let us know and we will hopefully find a mate for you to bunk with to save on money and trip expenses. Our tours include airfare, some bus tours and accommodations at the Royal National Hotel. Our guided tours include the knowledge of myself (William Thomas) and others who tour with us on a continual basis. Our knowledge of London and the many towns and cities throughout England is extensive. We have had literally 100's of customers of the years join us on our trips to the United Kingdom. Often our customers find rare and exotic items at the markets due to our arrival when opening and seeking out a wide span of markets throughout the region. Come join us and see what fun it can be to buy antiques while touring the U.K. and the countryside. You'll not only love the experience but you will be begging to come back time and time again.

Rare Brutalist Bronze Bull by Prince "Monyo" Mihailesco-Nasturel Herescu of Palm Beach, Florida (Miami)
Probably one of the best brutalist style bronzes I've seen by Prince "Monyo" Simon Mihailescu-Nasturel of Palm Beach, Florida.
Born in 1926, the artist is the only remaining blood line of the Romanian Voevods Kings.
Monyo studied history and religion in Paris but never ventured into anything artistic until his political exile from Communist Bucharest in the 1960's while living in Canada - he traveled heavily throughout several places in the world but settled in Palm Beach (Miami) Florida where he opened a bronze business.
His works has been shown in many museums around the globe, and his art has been featured in International Art Guild as well as Architectural Digest and many more.
This Monyo charging bull is done in a heavy brutalist style and weighs 39 pounds in all - the bronze is fresh from a Lakeland, Florida estate and has never been touched (I only used a soft brush to wipe the dust from the surface).
In excellent original condition, the patina to the surface is top notch, and this fresh to the market piece measures 14 3/4" inches long and is 8" inches tall at his arched tail.
Signed inscribed with "Monyo" the bronze has no repairs or issues.
