Watercolour by Mildred Elsie Eldridge, Wife of Poet RS Thomas, amongst the star pieces at New Antiques, Homes and Gardens Show



Amongst the star pieces on sale at next weekend’s new Antiques + Homes + Gardens Show at Carmarthen Showground (26th and 27th of July 2014) will be a watercolour by Mildred Elsie Eldridge.

Mildred Elsie Eldridge – known as Elsie- was the wife of one of the 20th century’s most celebrated writers RS Thomas, and she is credited with helping shape him.

Elsie however had an impressive career of her own and was making a name for herself as a successful artist before she met the man she was to marry.

The watercolour (pictured) which will go on sale at the Antiques + Homes + Gardens Show is expected to generate a great deal of interest.

Painted in 1975 it features three rabbits and is titled ‘Young Rabbits’, it is also signed and dated by the artist.

The ‘RHS Chelsea Flower Show’ Gold Medal Winners will also be able to advise on how to make the most of your garden this summer and beyond.
