Known best as a ‘Mr Gadget’ who amassed a large selection of the ‘weird and wonderful’ such as a clockwork teasmade and an adjustable skirt lifter, Collins is showing a different side to his interests at the London Art Antiques & Interiors Fair at the ExCeL venue in east London from Friday to Sunday, January 12-14.
