"Coronavirus has had a massive impact on the art and antiques trade. Many fairs and auctions have been cancelled or postponed. Windsor Auctions has managed to continue monthly auctions, although the Auctioneer is beginning to get slightly lonely without the usual faces, so we are excited to see you all soon. "
