ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The 2017 edition of the LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair will take place from 15-20 September 2017 at Berkeley Square, Mayfair, London. The event, which is returning for its ninth edition, is a leading destination for international collectors and buyers looking to source unique, one-of-a-kind objects.

Over 100 prominent specialists will be in attendance, offering works from multiple genres, including decorative arts, furniture, fine art and jewellery from antiquity to the present day, with prices ranging from £500 to £500,000.

The LAPADA Fair is the flagship event of LAPADA the Association of Art & Antiques Dealers, the largest society of professional art and antiques dealers in the UK. LAPADA members must adhere to a strict Code of Practice and an expert committee of 70 specialists pre-vets every piece individually for authenticity, ensuring buyer confidence.

Mieka Sywak, Director of the LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair, comments: “I am delighted to announce that the dates for the 2017 edition of the LAPADA Fair means it will run from Friday through to Wednesday. This will give us the opportunity to bridge two weeks in September and will allow us to benefit from coinciding with London Fashion Week (15th – 19th September), which attracts thousands of additional international visitors to central London. We will also run alongside the 20/21 British Art Fair, which takes place for the first time at The Mall Galleries, St. James's, London SW1 (13th – 17th September).”

To launch its partnership with private investment house Killik & Co, the LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair hosted ‘History & Heritage: Collecting Antique Jewellery’ on Tuesday 13 June 2017 in the Music Room at Killik & Co’s Mayfair headquarters. Georgie Killik, head of the Silo team at Killik & Co, and Mieka Sywak, LAPADA's Fair Director, moderated the special talk which featured an expert panelist, Anthea Gesua from A.G. Antiques, Amy Burton from Hancocks London, and Aimée van Kranendonk Duffels from VKD Jewels, asking them why they originally pursued a career in antique jewellery and what drew them to the field. The experts shared their backgrounds and motivations, and tips and advice on subjects such as buying criteria, resources for the first-time collector, and their views of the future of collecting.
