London's Famous Chelsea Antiques Fair Enters 70th Year
The Chelsea Antiques Fair takes place at Chelsea Old Town Hall, King’s Road, Chelsea, London from 18th– 20th March 2020.
Established in 1950, it is the longest running antiques events in England. The fair showcases forty professional antique dealers and art galleries from across the country. Together, they display fine quality pieces for collectors, dealers and interior decorators.
This is the 70th year of the fair, and changes have been introduced. In order to bring provincial specialists to London, organiser Caroline Penman has reduced the duration of the fair and thus the costs. As Caroline explains, these moves mean the fair can offer a broader, more diverse range of exhibits at affordable prices.
Everything on sale has a fully described price label, which will have been checked for accuracy by the expert vetting committee before the fair opens each day. Visitors can expect to see fine English and Scottish silver, jewellery, English and Continental porcelain and pottery, objects d’art, oil paintings and watercolours, furniture and unique decorative pieces. These will range in date from around 1700 to the present day, with prices from £25 to £10,000.
Specialist dealers include Jupiter Antiques from Sussex with 18thand 19thcentury English porcelain; M. and D. Moir from Surrey with Belle Epoque and Art Deco glassware; and Philip Carrol from Yorkshire with a carefully selected mix of fine and unusual British and Oriental artifacts.
