Elinor began collecting Staffordshire in the 1970s, travelling Europe with her husband, a leading horse trainer. Prior to that, she'd already established herself as one of the first female sports journalists in the US (read more here). When her husband died in 1992, she began to collect more seriously and now has a 3000+ figure collection. Since then, she's become the foremost dealer in 19th century Staffordshire pottery in the US. Elinor has an unparalleled selection of: animals, from bull baiting to zebras; dogs, from afghans to spaniels; cottages; historical figures, including military and royalty; and Sherratt bocage groups. She also has a fine stock of Sunderland lusterware, Measham 'bargeware', reverse glass paintings, needlepoints and tinsel prints.
Elinor is happy to offer advice to novice and established collectors alike. If you're looking for something in particular, ask Elinor.
