The Financial Times has the low-down on the high art being offered at London antiques fairs this month.

Timed to coincide with the major summer auctions are four fairs, beginning June 3-6 with West London Art and Antiques Fair. Next up is David and Lee Ann Lester's revamped Olympia, now dubbed the London International Fine Art Fair, which is still vast (about 180 exhibitors) and aiming to attract new buyers from China and the Middle East.

The Haughton-organized International Ceramics Fair has been rolled into Art Antiques London, which will feature about 60 leading international dealers at Kensington Gardens, June 9-16.

From fine wines to pink diamonds, English furniture to vintage cars, the new Masterpiece London, June 24-29, aims to be a new type of fair, featuring high-end collectibles alongside traditional offerings of art and antiques.
