THE CHARLES GREIG GALLERY
Charles Greig, the Aberdeen clockmaker, first opened his doors on the dusty streets of Johannesburg in 1899. His name became a brand that, more than a century later, is a leader in the luxury goods market, and internationally recognized as a purveyor of handcrafted jewellery and fine timepieces.
Today, his great-grandson Christopher Greig, whilst continuing that tradition, is also a designer and artist – as can be seen by his many commissioned works of jewellery, beautifully sketched and finely executed. His love of art and Nature has always been evident in the bronze sculpture displayed in the elegant Hyde Park store. It can be said that nature and beautiful things are an abiding passion of the Greigs, and two family members have emerged as talented sculptors of wildlife- Christopher’s mother, Italia and brother, Donald.
