John Sandon to be Patron of the Progress Estate's 2015 Centenary Celebrations

The Progress Estate Residents’ Association is delighted that antiques expert John Sandon has agreed to be its patron.

John is a well-known porcelain expert on the BBC’s “Antiques Roadshow”.  He is also International Director of European Ceramics & Glass at Bonhams, the international auctioneers and valuers.  He is a world authority on European porcelain and has written many books and articles on the subject.  He has been involved in excavations at the Royal Worcester factory site ad has authored and co-authored several books on the factory.

John and his wife Kris lived on the Estate in Lovelace Green from 1982 until 1991.  Their home is less than an hour away, in Kent.

John said “I’m delighted to be Patron for the Progress Estate’s 2015 celebrations.  I have such fond memories of living on Lovelace Green.”

“Despite its proximity to central London, the whole Estate has a village atmosphere and it is important to not let its 100th birthday slip by un-noticed.”
