KENSINGTON GARDENS HOSTS ART ANTIQUES LONDON 2016

Art Antiques London is taking place at Kensington Gardens, London SW7 from Friday 24 June until Thursday 30 June 2016.

Art Antiques London

Now in its seventh consecutive year, the 2016 event has been organised by London-based international fair organisers, Anna and Brian Haughton, and will host 60 international dealers of antiques and fine and decorative arts in a stunning purpose-built pavilion at Albert Memorial West Lawn, opposite the Royal Albert Hall.

Specialist dealers of antiques and fine and decorative arts from the UK, USA, Europe and Middle East will be showcasing furniture, silver, pottery and porcelain, sculpture, paintings, textiles, books and other C20th art and objects. All items on display will be for sale.

With a committed following of collectors, museum experts, art consultants, interior designers and enthusiasts, Art Antiques London is one of the most popular antiques fairs of the summer season.

Among the specialist and international dealers in the spotlight this year is Hampton Antiques.  From humble beginnings on the famous Portabello Road to now being leading experts in their field, Hampton Antiques has a consistent presence at the UK's most prestigious antiques fairs. The team brings over 80 years collective experience in the buying, selling and restoration of antiques.  Owner Mark Goodger's extensive knowledge and experience mean that he is regularly sought after to vet fairs and auction houses. This year, Hampton Antiques will be showcasing a coromandel games compendium, commissioned and made in 1880 with the initial plate featuring a Marquess coronet.
