The Ronald Pile Collection.
In 1980 Ronald Pile took over the ownership of the legendary craft and art shop, Primavera on Kings Parade in Cambridge from the very influential Henry Rothschild.
Two of Ronald’s greatest interests are Ceramics and Folk Art and over years Primavera exhibited and sold a dazzling number of the best examples of these art forms.
I first met Ronald in. 1990 when I came to work at Arts Theatre just around the corner. I was soon popping in to buy presents of all kind. One of the wonderful things about the shop was that Ronald and his dedicated small team where so knowable and it was always such fun.
So, I am extremely thrilled and privileged to be able to include a range of items from Ronald’s private collection.
