Celebrating UK Art & Antiques at Buxton Fair
The famous Buxton Antiques Fair returns to the Octagon Hall at the Pavilion Gardens from 19 – 22 May. A visit to the well-known Buxton venue is already in the diary for many connoisseurs and collectors eagerly looking forward to this popular event with its treasure trove of rare and fascinating exhibits from leading specialist dealers.
Organiser Sue Ede, explains: ‘We are very excited to be presenting the fair with another sumptuous selection of the finest pieces available on the art market today.’
There will be many highlights across the entire range of art and antiques. Newcomer Julian Eade promise a fabulous range of pottery and porcelain from many major factories. Among the highlights will be a superb pair of Royal Crown Derby vases painted with pictures of exotic birds by Cuthbert Gresley (1876-1963).
Hispanic Antiques specialise in Spanish historic and decorative objets d’art including a painted 19th century Hispano-Moresque dish at £850 and an extremely rare hand coloured example of Munster’s map of Spain and Portugal from the 1540 edition of Geographia. Also new will be Julia Dinkhall Antiques & Interiors from Scotland with country house pieces and jewellery.
In addition to antiques and fine art, the fair always offers silver, jewellery, glass and ceramics. Candice Horley shows 20th century porcelain and art prints, Plaza and Shapiro specialise in fine jewellery, Stephen Kalms shows English silver and Garret & Hurst bring 19th and early 20th century French and European sculpture. Visitors to last year’s fair went home with many of the largest and heaviest pieces on sale – garden antiques and statuary belonging to Skyes Place and King George Antiques.
Among the regular exhibitors will be Mark Buckley Antiques and Brian Ashbee & Wes Wotruba with English furniture and accessories; fine art specialists Granta Fine Art with 20th century works; Jo Bennett with Northern and contemporary oils and watercolours; and E-Stacy-Marks, Walker Galleries and Rowles Fine Art from Shrewsbury with fine English and Continental paintings.
