Judith Miller at Art & Antiques for Everyone

Judith Miller, the well-known expert from BBC TV’s Antiques Roadshow, will be celebrating 40 years in the antiques world at the forthcoming Art & Antiques for Everyone Fair at the NEC, Birmingham from 28 November – 1 December 2019.

Judith Miller was the co-founder of the world-famous Millers Antiques Price Guide, a book that continues to be the ‘bible’ for collectors. The Millers list of publications also includes many authoritative guides to a wide range of collecting topics. They will be exhibiting at the Art & Antiques for Everyone fair and Judith will be signing books. Born in Galashiels, Scotland, Judith Miller first began collecting antiques while studying history at Edinburgh University. In 1979, she co-wrote the Miller's Antiques Price Guide with her first husband, Martin Miller and during the 1980s, the Millers Antiques Price Guide became a publishing phenomenon, regularly topping the UK list of best-selling hard backs year after year. Today, in addition to appearing as an expert on television, Judith is a regular contributor to newspapers and magazines including The Scotsman, the Financial Times, the Saturday Daily Telegraph, Canadian Home and Country magazine and to US Traditional Home and Country Living. She also regularly lectures at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Smithsonian. Judith will be speaking in daily talks at the fair and reminiscing on her forty years in the antiques trade. She will be joined by fellow TV antiques expert and author Mark Hill who is also speaking and offering for sale interesting pieces drawn from his private collection.

With prices from less than £20 to more than £20,000, there is something for the most discerning buyer and first-time collector. With specialists in 18th, 19th and 20th century jewellery, including many eye-catching vintage handbags and costume pieces inspired by the Hollywood designers of the 1920’s and 30’s, the fair is proven provider of inspiration for the special gift. For men, fabulous designer watches, cufflinks, tie pins, silver hip flasks, Art Deco drinks cabinets, cocktail shakers, vintage leather luggage, 1920’s Peaky Blinders flat caps and treasures from the Grand Tour qualify as desirable ‘Mantiques’.

The fair attracts more than ten thousand visitors over four days. ‘Our Winter fair is the largest of its kind and a magnet for anyone with an interest in antiques and collecting,’ says Dan Leyland. The fair has the unique appeal of bringing together dealers from all levels of the antiques world: dealers with galleries in London’s West End showing their finest works; to occasional dealers with a passionate desire to buy and sell all kinds of unusual items from early toys and dolls to vintage fabrics, unusual memorabilia and rare scientific instruments. The fair presents exhibitors in a variety of settings – experts with a stand showing their latest acquisitions to professionally lit room-set style displays designed to inspire. As one exhibitor explained: ‘People are seeking to buy unique and interesting pieces, items that have a timeless aesthetic appeal and add character to the home.’

At recent NEC fairs, Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Scandinavian works of art have all proved extremely popular, while Mid-Century Modern, 20th Century works of art selected contemporary pieces have broadened the fair’s appeal to younger collectors. The fair continues to offer a fantastic range of traditional antiques, from Asian art and artefacts, fine art, early pottery, designer lighting, classic English town and country furniture, fine porcelain to 18th and 19th century glass, bronzes, silver and jewellery. Vetted for Quality and Assurance Art & Antiques for Everyone is a vetted fair with a team of experts assembled to ensure that exhibits are professionally presented and accurately labelled.
