Carpe Diem Exhibition - 17 June - 1 July 2017

Every two years, Cotswold antique dealers Manfred Schotten Antiques and Christopher Clarke Antiques come together to host an exhibition, showcasing the highlights of their niche areas. Carpe Diem, which takes place from 17 June until 1 July 2017, is their fifth joint biannual exhibition and celebrates those that seize the day, be they sportsmen and women or the military and colonists who travelled the world.

Campaign Sedan Desk Chair - A folding satin birch, combined Sedan and Desk Chair. Early C19th. £2200.

Both dealers are pioneers in communicating their knowledge of and developing an appreciation for their subjects. Carpe Diem showcases sporting antiques and campaign furniture, embracing the elements and theme of outdoor life and seizing the day. The exhibition of 100 items includes everything from portable furniture and small travel accessories, ideal for adding comfort to a journey, to sporting equipment (that is still useable today) and art work illustrating both subjects. Vintage motoring and leather luggage are also well represented. All of the exhibition items are colour illustrated in an accompanying catalogue.

Early Lawn Tennis Racket - A racket with all attributes of an early lawn tennis racket but light and delicate like a Sphairistike racket. The frame is very unusual, not made of ash as one would expect, but is an exotic dark hardwood. This suggests the racket may be colonial in origin. Circa 1880. £1650.

God Save The King - A red and white cotton Banner made for the coronation of King George VI. Hundreds of these banners were produced at the time but few would have survived. They would have been hung in towns throughout the country in support of the King during an uncertain time in the world. Circa 1937. £310. 

A percentage of the profit from sales at the exhibition will go to local charity Kate’s Home Nursing.  The exhibition will also draw to a climax  with a Cotswold Navigational Rally that will also raise money for the charity. The dealers have raised over £ 40,000 for the charity in the past by way of the rally, which is always a fun day out, attracting owners of both vintage and classic cars, and those with modern vehicles.

Low Campaign Armchair by E. Ross - An unusual, low and wide mahogany Armchair by E. Ross of Dublin. This chair is different to any other by the company that we have seen. Its extra width may point to it being bespoke made for a large officer. The label dates the chair to between 1850 and 1860. £2100.

Carpe Diem, the joint exhibition by Christopher Clarke Antiques and Manfred Schotten Antiques, will take place from 17 June until 1 July 2017, at Manfred Schotten Antiques in Burford.  For more information, visit Christopher Clarke Antiques and Manfred Schotten Antiques.
