John Sheppard - Watercolour with pen and ink is by the South African artist Maud Sumner. (1902 -1985) ‘Parisian Square in Montmartre’
Signed circa 1970.  Image size 18“ x 23“.  Priced at £4250.

ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The Chelsea Antiques Fair makes a welcome return to its familiar home at Chelsea Old Town Hall from 20–24 March 2019 after a year’s absence while the famous King's Road landmark was restored and redecorated.

Organiser Caroline Penman of Penman Fairs, who took over the fair in 1980, told ANF: "This has been the first time since 1950 that the fair has taken a break. Many regular collectors have been in touch and are looking forward to our return in the newly refurbished, gilded and polished Town Hall."

Making a big commitment to the return of Chelsea Antiques Fair with a much expanded stand will be Mike Melody of Melody Antiques, Cheshire, who is discovering a new audience for his traditional town and country furniture among millennials, whom he believes are tiring of flatpack 'cookie cutter' furniture preferring to find their own personal style combining traditional and modern design.


Other furniture dealers exhibiting will be Wayne Long Antiques and A & J. Antiques,

Paul Bennett Silver - A large and extremely beautiful 19th century silver-gilt nine basket epergne decorated with applied bead borders, stylish hanging garlands and elegant flute workmanship.  All the arms and pierced baskets are detachable.  Priced at £17,500.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Today Chelsea Fair provides a reliable and diverse mix of antique furniture and collector’s pieces, be they in bronze, ceramics, wood or on canvas. Changes to the fair in the 21st century reflect the ever-evolving UK art and antiques market. Grand opening ceremonies with celebrities of the day 30 years ago, have given way to a more relaxed atmosphere which is in keeping with a younger audience and the international set who people the King's Road.  Penman Fairs ensures that all exhibits, so although no longer datelined, are vetted for quality and authenticity ensuring collectors can buy with confidence.

The fair promises some exciting premier exhibitors for collectors, including Morgan Strickland Decorative Arts, specialising in Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Aesthetic Movement, Art Deco and Twentieth century design and will be showing pieces by such designers and makers including Archibald Knox, Liberty’s, Keith Murray, Loetz, Wiener Werkstatte, Venini and Preiss.

The remaining roster of 35 exhibitors include
Richard Hoppé showing European glass, snuff bottles and decorative tiles; M. & D. Moir showing European and British designer glass and Jeanette Hayhurst will be showing early English drinking glasses to Whitefriars vases. Eastdale Antiques and Paul Bennett Antiques specialize in fine English silver; Jupiter Antiques and Carolyn Stoddart Scott showing English porcelain from the major 18th and 19th centuries factories; and English pottery specialist Roger de Ville is back with English pottery including early Coalport, Staffordshire, Delft, Blue & White, Mason’s Ironstone and Prattware.

Barclay Samson with vintage posters; art galleries John Shepherd & Stephen Welbourne Fine Art, predominantly showing English watercolours, drawings and engravings; newcomer Thomas Spencer Fine Art with 19th and 20th century paintings.

The essential jewellery department at Chelsea Fair will be welcome specialists including Plaza, Shapiro & Co, T.Robert and Markov, all long established dealers, and making a debut will be Brown Elliot, dealers in fine estate jewellery,
British silver, period furniture, art and objects.

Other debut dealers will be Rug Addiction, dealing antique Persian, Turkish and Asian carpets and rugs, Shine on Design dealing in Art Deco furniture and accessories.

Jupiter Antiques - The Grimacing Dwarfs are street characters being both amusing and somewhat bewitching, which bring up memories of the Wizard of Oz.

They have been in the same collection ever since.  The figures are pictured twice in Bradshaw's, Derby Porcelain Figures, 1750 to 1848, plate 163 and colour plate XVI. The photographs were supplied by Bonhams from photographs used in the 1986 catalogue.  The figures are marked with crown, cross batons, 'D' in red and the female figure is incised N53.  c815-20.   POA
