Peter Francis, the Auctioneers in Carmarthen, South Wales, have added two new experts to their growing panel of consultants in specialist fields.

David Gardner becomes consultant in Oriental rugs, Carpets and Textiles, having advised the company for many years on an informal basis. David is well known in the field and has delivered one day presentations on the identification and valuation of rugs and carpets to the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers. He has also acted as an official vetter/adjudicator for rugs, carpets and textiles at international Antiques fairs in Birmingham and London, and has exhibited at a number of prestigious Antiques fairs around the country. He has built up a circle of many friends and acquaintances in the rug and carpet trade, over more than 35 years, on whom he can call for a second opinion as need arises.

Also joining the team at Towyside Saleroom in Carmarthen is Mike Donoghue in the field of Chinese and Oriental Ceramics. Although not a Valuer Mike is experienced and knowledgeable as an academic in the enormous area of Chinese and Asian ceramics. He will lend his expertise to the cataloguers in all sales to assist in properly describing lots consigned for sale.

The firm already employ consultants in the field of stamps and ephemera, jewellery and vintage fashion.
