Eight antique dealers discuss there objects at a table, can you place them (position 1-8) and date there objects?

Caroline Wat occupies a diagrammatically opposite position from the antique of 1857. Tom Whitman's in the same decade as the one in position 6. Bo Finn bears a number in the diagram two than the antique from 1861. Stan Shaw is in position 2 but his is not from the 1870's. Susan Miles' antique is from 1869. Most recent is from 1893 in pos 8. The name of the person in position 5, who's is not from 1886 has fewer letters than the one in position 1, which date wise precedes immediately that of Paul Weston's. Wendy Po's position is half that of the one from 1878.



Bo Finn, Tom Witman, Wendy Po, Paul Weston, Don Barrow, Susan Miles Caroline Wat, Stan Shaw,


1857, 1861, 1869, 1874, 1878, 1886, 1890, 1893,

Assume you mean two more than or two less than.
Which?

Tom Whitman's in the same decade as the one in position 6.

Do you place 1890 in the decade of 1881-1890, which is correct, or in the "decade" of 1890-1899, as many do?

Thanks for the clarifications. :)

Is there a diagram?
Does this just mean their positions differ by 4?

Thanks again.
