ESHER HALL BOUTIQUE ANTIQUES & FINE ART FAIR
With a reputation for luxury and quality in a boutique style environment, The Esher Hall Antiques & Fine Art Fair has attracted all the right exhibitors for its 9th outing at the Sandown Park Racecourse 7-9 October 2016.
Lucy B Campbell Gallery 'Kyoto' by Manuel López Herrera, oil on canvas, priced at £8,900
Small portable objects, jewellery and paintings are the order of the day at this event but the regular return of furniture dealer S&S Timms Antiques indicates that furniture also sells well at the fair set in the salubrious environs of what used to be called “The Stockbroker Belt” of Surrey! Timms will be bringing one of the highlighted items at the fair a superb George III period mahogany breakfront bookcase c 1800 (£17,500) which is an usually small and very useful scale.

A drawing of the bases can be found at the V&A Museum in the catalogue of GA Glick showing alternative designs for the candlesticks with or without storm shades and with instructions as to which sections are bronzed and gilded.
