lorraine evans proprietor

The New Year 2016 is back to work on House of Francheska. Presently things are improving and I'm happy to say at last my health is managable and life is back on track for a promising successful future. If you would like to see more about my absence from H.O.F please visit this direct link www.house-of-francheska.co.uk/acknowledgements.htm

I would like to say thank you to all customers and visitors for your understanding whilst I was away, I'm really looking forward to adding more fabulous collectable jewels to the new shop very soon.

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy and Properous New Year 2016

All best wishes to you all - Lorraine Evans

A couple of our items were chosen to appear on the BBC2 Antiques Master 2011

Three contestants put their skill and knowledge to the test over three tough challenges at Towneley Hall in Burnley, Lancashire
John Denham, from Hertfordshire, whose passion is Stoneware;
Heather Ray, from Lancashire, who specialises in costume jewellery
and Stephen Micallef-Grogan, from East Sussex, who loves the purity of Lalique glass.

Towneley Hall in Burnley is a museum known locally as the "jewel in Burnley's crown". A popular destination for locals and vistors alike, it was taken over by the BBC as the location for the filming of Antique Masters. This short film gives a behind scenes look at the preparations to turn Towneley Hall from museum to TV studio.
