Visitors can chance upon rare period furniture to curios in the Art Nouveau or the Art Deco section. Appropriately named, the fair offers wonderful Victorian novelties priced at £10 to the finest paintings worth £100,000.
About 150 exhibitors participate in the event, out of which 100 specialise in ceramics whilst the other 50 put on display oils and watercolours ranging from the 18th century to the 20th century contemporary Modern British works.
Two sections in the fair are:
- 1. Section One: Antiques and objets d'art, which pre-date 1914, are displayed in elegant room-set style purposefully to demonstrate how period furniture, paintings and decorative accessories can complement any home.
- 2. Section Two: In this section dealers offer antiques up to 1950. Many exhibitors are members of the antiques trade's leading associations, the BADA and LAPADA.
A group of experts inspects every exhibit in order to ensure that everything is both authentic and of good quality. Also scheduled during the fair are a number of informative and entertaining seminar talks which further assist the buyer in making decisions.
