Black Bough | Shopping
Black Bough offers a stylish selection of contemporary & vintage gift items that are beautifully, well-designed, carefully made & expertly crafted.
Opened in March 2014 by Alex Barter and Adam Withington, Black Bough is a shop that reflects the interests and knowledge that both have individually and collectively.
Alex’s knowledge base is vintage watches and, in particular, vintage wristwatches. His experience in this somewhat singular field was gained while he worked at Sotheby’s as a member of their watch team, progressing from department assistant in 1996 to director and head of their watch department in Europe, via a stint of 4 years running the watch department in Geneva.
Adam's interests lie in design, craft and art; for a period of 13 years he ran a block of artists’ studios in West London, arranged exhibitions and helped those involved within the creative industries to develop their businesses.
Black Bough reflects their disparate and broad interests; they sell one off items made by local artists, vintage pieces that they pick up on their travels, vintage wristwatches from Omega and Rolex to Longines, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe and everyday items such as greetings cards and gift wrap, many by local artists.
