The shop in this painting was at the time occupied by Jean Sewell, a specialist dealer in pottery and porcelain. Painted sometime in the 60s or early 70s. The development of Kensington Church Street as a key location for the antique ceramic trade was so much so that the street became known as ‘Crock Alley’. Indeed, many of the famous names in the antique ceramic trade were located in the Street; Graham & Oxley, Hoff Antiques, Jean Sewell, Klaber & Klaber, Jonathan Horne….. The shop is now run by Simon Spero, dealing in fine 18th century English porcelain.
