...he skied with Franz Klammer and Eddie the Eagle

Aside from antiques, Thomas enjoys spending as much time as possible outdoors, whether clay pigeon shooting or enjoying a brisk walk, often ending in a pub lunch. In his youth, not only did Thomas ski in Europe representing GB, his claim to fame was that he skied with Franz Klammer and Eddie the Eagle. Thomas was also President of his university fencing club and still likes to think of himself as an accomplished 'sabreur' or sabre fencer!

These days Thomas is more often found enjoying the cut and thrust of the auction, though we’re sure he can still dust off his fencing gear at a moment’s notice.
