MY RETIREMENT

I am happy to say that as of 4.30pm today 31st March 2021 Abbott and Holder belongs to

Tom Edwards

Abbott and Holder has been formed by an unbroken line of successful partnerships since 1936; Robert Abbott and Eric Holder, Eric and John Abbott, John and I and, latterly, Me and Tom. It has evolved, each of us has brought necessary updates to the model. Mine I feel was the move to Museum Street in 1987. Tom’s has been to make us fit for digital purpose. All of us too has had An Eye. The Stock Books reveal that over 120,000 pieces of paper and canvas have been through my hands since 1979. Each of them studied, considered, and bought. And sold.
 A dealer’s Eye should be particular; quality comes in so many forms. And a certain taste – House Style – is very important.

So I am sure that this next incarnation of A and H is in the right hands.

and… Thank You everyone

Philip Athill (A and H 1979-2021)
