THE HONE COLLECTION (LOTS 1-143) Peter Hone, one time British Rail chef, Antique Dealer, sometime English Heritage guide, raconteur, wit, autodidact, dyslexic, cultural icon and now Master Plaster Caster is disposing of his collection of objects acquired over 50 years. Mr. Hone, who worked for 15 years for Lord Rothschild's Clifton Nurseries, Little Venice, will not be retiring or downsizing! He will be grisaille-ing. Peter's now empty apartment in Notting Hill, London is to be a fantasy of white plaster plaques on grey walls, all of his own making. David Bridgwater.
