A series of short videos by David Harvey

This is some of the feedback we have received since starting our Masterclass series.

Goodness… you certainly livened up my Saturday afternoon. This was a truly excellent email to receive. The masterclass was faultless and you hit just the right note between expertise and friendliness…very fluent. What a piece of work that escritoire is indeed!!!!! Wonderful.

I spent a portion of my morning viewing your second instalment of your video series on antiques.  You are quite proficient at these wonderful videos. 

The Escritoire is exceptional…simply stunning.  And just for the record…the Alvis TE 21 ain’t so bad either.  I am not certain which of the two story lines was the bonus. 

Regardless, my morning coffee was rather exceptional as I viewed Masterclass #2.  I am happy to be a willing student learning from such a fine instructor.  It is a pleasure. Thank you!
