This glamorous showcase brings together more than 70 exciting international dealers offering exceptional works of art, among them many of museum quality. Furniture, paintings, drawings, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, glass, clocks, watches, jewelry, objets de vertu, silver, antiquities and Asian art are among the many different categories included and for sale. Prices start from as little as a few hundred dollars but rise into the millions. The fair’s superb lecture programme is a particular feature of the Fair, underpinning the Fair’s academic credentials and always receives acclaim from collectors.
Uniquely positioned in one of London’s most fashionable areas, the fair has become an essential destination in the heart of London for a community of collectors and curators from around the world. “We think the fair hits all the right notes in creating an exceptional art viewing experience like no other,” comments Brian Haughton, the Fair Organizer and ceramics exhibitor. “While there are 70+ exhibitors, it feels intimate enough for our visitors to have more than a passing dalliance with a work of art. And that seems to make all the difference.”
