Margaret Joyce Edelweiss Hearne

Vendor of Egyptian antiquities

Mrs Margaret Joyce Edelweiss Hearne received a group of Egyptian antiquities from Miss Amy Urlin, a relative of the archaeologist Professor William Matthew Flinders Petrie of University College London. Some of this collection was placed on loan to Glasgow Art Gallery & Museums by Miss Amy Urlin in November 1912.

Margaret Hearne was married to Mr. E.J Hearne, the curator of Littlehampton Museum, West Sussex. The Egyptian collection of Amy Urlin came via Littlehampton Museum, as did that of Lady Allen-Williams, and the two became muddled when they were both presented to the Museum Committee in 1944. Many objects were renumbered between 1976 and 1977 according to the inventories of both collections. In some instances there may still be confusion and objects may be marked twice.

Mrs Hearne's address was: Landsdowne, Broadmark Lane, Rustington, Sussex.
