News & Fairs Previews


Relative newcomers to the scene, Rose Antiques Fairs are making an impact on the Northern fairs scene with their fast expanding Antiques, Decorative & Fine Art Fair at York Racecourse 30-31 July 2016 and Haydock Park Racecourse 10-11 September.  Rachel Denyer of Rose Antiques Fairs told ANF:  “York is a marvellous city to hold a top quality antiques fair. We had 35 dealers at last year’s event, at the University of York. The fair was very successful, so this year we’ve moved to York Racecourse and expanded the event to about 60 specialist dealers.”

Plaza Antique Jewellery

Plaza Jewellery - Huge and dramatic pale pink kunzite ring; the kunzite weighs a mighty 26ct and is surrounded by 14 brilliant cut diamonds totalling 5cts. It measures 3cm x 2.5cm and tests as 18ct gold.

Founded in 2014, the 4 Yorkshire-based antiques dealers John & Christine Breganza of York Minster Antiques, and Morgan & Rachel Denyer of Penrose Antiques Ltd, who joined forces to run dealer-led quality antiques fairs in the North of England work very well as a team and from their dealer perspective are able to understand what makes their exhibitors happy!

Having doubled the exhibitor numbers for York, the team have put together a programme of talks and exhibitions to develop the attraction of the event for visitors:  “We’ve extended the program of antiques talks as these were very popular with visitors last year”, said organiser Christine Braganza. “We’re also very pleased to have a selling exhibition of Billingsley porcelain at the fair”. The exhibition “A Journey with William Billingsley” is currently running at Salts Mill in Saltaire, and it will move to York Racecourse for the Antiques Fair. “The exhibition follows Billingsley’s career as he moved from the Derby Porcelain Factory to establishing the Pinxton Porcelain Factory and then onto the Nantgarw and Swansea porcelain factories, and it includes some rare and important pieces from Royal dinner services” explained organiser Morgan Denyer.
