Afternoon Tea with MAU3A
MAU3A invites you to Afternoon Tea on Monday 26th April at 3pm, with guest speaker Chris O’Grady relating stories on Fake or Fortune
Chris O’Grady has spent a lifetime hunting down, buying and selling art and antiques.
The presentation will include numerous stories of money gained and money lost, of scoundrels exploiting the naïve and extraordinary finds in the most unlikely of places.
Ideas will be shared of where treasure might be uncovered and the process of assessing and valuing your finds
Please be aware though, that the perceived value of your beautiful antiques and treasured art can go up as well as down…..in a moment.
Zoom invitations will be sent out to all members a few days prior to this event
