ABOUT THIS FAIR:

World-class art and antiques on show at the world-class location of Blenheim Palace, at the 8th annual Cotswolds Art and Antiques Dealers’ Association (CADA) Fair, Thursday 21 February – Sunday 24 February 2019.

The fair enjoys the cache of being the only antiques fair to take place at Blenheim Palace, home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, in the beautiful Colonnade, Orangery and Campaign Rooms, overlooking the Italian Gardens.  Patron of the Association and Fair – and CADA member - is Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, sister of the present Duke.

Prices range from £100 - £100,000+.

New exhibitors this year include CADA member Alderson Antiques which specialises in 18th century English furniture and works of art alongside interesting items from the 17th and 19th centuries. J. H. Bourdon-Smith offers antique and modern silver from the 16th century to the present day; Brian Watson Antique Glass offers Georgian and Victorian table glass, but also decorative and useful glass from the 20th century, Freshfords Fine Antiques specialises in 18th and 19th century English furniture, mirrors and objets d’art and Wakelin & Linfield offer fine antique furniture for the town and country.  New CADA member Dantzig specialises in 20th Century Modern Art with a focus on works on paper including original prints from the 20th Century, including Modern Masters such as Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse and other highly acclaimed artists.

Catherine Hunt Oriental Antiques - Chinese Porcelain Early 18th Century Sparrow beak jug made during the reign of the Emperor Yongzheng at Jingdezhen for export to Europe. Priced at £2950.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

THE FACE OF THE FAIR

Catherine Hunt, CADA Fair Director, says; ‘each year, we like to use a portrait of a woman as the ‘Face of the Fair’. The image we have chosen this year is ‘Portrait of a Lady’ by Circle of Dirck Van Santvoort, a fine and elegant example of a Golden Age painting from a Dutch master and available from Trinity House Paintings, specialists in Impressionist, post-Impressionist, modern British and 19th century paintings.

The dates for this year’s Fair fall in February, which coincides with the start of the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Pig so expect to see a few of these celebrated farmyard animals around the fair in various forms. 

One exhibitor, John Howard will show two rare pottery items featuring: a pig tithe group, Staffordshire c. 1820 and pig tree trunk figure Portobello Scotland c. 1835. Sarah Colegrave Fine Art will show a fine example of a contemporary artist taking the humble pig - as his subject matter, in his style paying homage to the long tradition of farm animals in paintings. ‘Saddleback Sow’, a watercolour by James Lynch, signed and dated ‘87. Wakelin & Linfield will display a rare pig mould which would have been used for culinary purposes, probably pâté.  Crafted in beech, which has taken on a beautiful patina over the years, the piece is early 19th century and probably Dutch. Hickmet Fine Arts, specialists in Art Nouveau and Art Deco Sculpture and Glass will bring a diminutive Vienna Bronze study of a standing pig with a very fine naturalistic colour and good hand finished detail standing at only 3cm high.  Elizabeth Harvey-Lee will exhibit ‘The Venturer’ an original lithograph of a young swineherd with a pig, 1906.

Newman Fine Art will show ‘Orpheus’, an enchanting watercolour of Orpheus charming a group of pigs, heightened with white and signed by Albert Goodwin RWS 1845-1932. Orpheus is a legendary musician, poet, and prophet in ancient Greek religion and myth. The major stories about him are centred on his ability to charm all living things and even stones with his music.

Other highlights at the fairt include furniture from W. R. Harvey & Co (Antiques) of Witney who will show a fine Hepplewhite period carved mahogany salon armchair and a very good Chippendale period mahogany four poster bed. Mayflower Antiques, specialists in Renaissance and Baroque silver, glass, caskets and boxes with some metalwork and furniture will show an extremely rare and unusual German silver filigree toilet box c. 1700 with earlier gilt plaques with scenes from the parable of Noah’s Ark. Jenna Burlingham will exhibit an Elisabeth Frink bronze, Man with Googles, 1969, as well as an oil on canvas by Lucien Pissarro, Les Oliviers Temps Gris, Toulon 1929 and Catherine Hunt will display a Yongzheng sparrow beak jug with a harvest scene, early 18th century. Temple Rare Books will exhibit an extremely rare dedicatee’s copy of The Nursery Alice: a signed Presentation Copy from the Author, Lewis Carroll, to the Dedicatee Marie van der Gucht with the second letters of each line of the dedicatory verses 'A Nursery Darling', spelling out her name. Dated 1890, the upper cover has a pictorial design in colour of Alice asleep and dreaming beneath a tree, signed 'E.G. Thomson', the lower cover with a picture of the March Hare in the centre, and the initials 'E.G.T.'

Catherine Hunt, Fair Director, summarises: ‘We are delighted to be holding the Fair in February 2019; being earlier this year puts us in line with the other prestigious fairs in February and March.  Blenheim being such a fantastic venue will be a great destination for the end of February and the start of Spring.
