ABOUT THIS FAIR:

A wonderful antidote to brighten up a dull February day is a visit to Art Antiques Cheshire taking place at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa, near Knutsford, Cheshire from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 February 2019. 

The fair has now settled into the social calendar of this smart region and will be returning for its 7th edition in February.  The venue offers a warm and relaxed atmosphere where visitors can take their time and enjoy meeting dealers  who are ready to offer friendly unpressured advice.

Around 25 leading experts will present an impressive showcase of furniture, silver, paintings, sculpture, jewellery, watches, glass, maps, antiquities, ceramics and other decorative arts from the modern, eclectic and quirky to the classic and traditional. 

Exhibitors this time include many who are on the London’s international fairs circuit including Garret & Hurst Sculpture from East Sussex, Stephen Kalms Antiques from the London Silver Vaults, Cambridge Fine Art, Greenstein Antiques and Shapiro & Co, both from Gray’s in London’s West End, T Robert, J Dickinson Maps & Prints from Derbyshire, Granta Fine Art from St Neots, Odyssey Antiquities & Coins from Southport. Local Cheshire dealers include Melody Antiques, Plaza and Les & Rhoda Howard Silver Collectables.

An object with a sound provenance always adds to its desirability. Shapiro & Co has a decorative Russian shaded enamel case from the 6th Artel of Moscow, together with its original Asprey retailer’s case (£4,500).  The 6th Artel (1908-1917) was one of the most famous in Russia and was a big Court supplier of high quality enamelled silver.  

Another item of note is a Georgian sterling silver double tea caddy by Peter Gillois, London 1759, in its original fitted shagreen box.  When tea was first introduced to Europe it was extremely expensive.  Therefore, the containers used were often costly and decorative to fit in with the rest of a drawing room.  This piece is from Stephen Kalms Antiques is priced at £5,500.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Exhibiting for the first time is Rountree Tryon Galleries Limited, selling traditional art and contemporary wildlife paintings.  Amongst the art on the stand are sizeable paintings by Emily Lamb (b.1985), grand-daughter of renowned British wildlife artist, David Shepherd, who has been making an impressive name in her own right. One such oil on canvas is 'Emergence', measuring 110cm x 170.2 cm, it would make a striking feature on a large blank wall and is priced at £13,500. Earlier this year, Rountree Tryon Galleries was granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh as a Specialist Art Dealer.   

Cambridge based Granta Fine Art will be showing paintings by renowned East Anglian artist Margaret Green (1925-2003) and Irish author and artist Ronald Ossory Dunlop (1894-1973) with prices ranging from £1,000 to £7,000. Local Cheshire oak furniture dealer Melody Antiques offers country furniture from oak chairs and dressers to kitchen tables alongside decorative antique posters, slipware, mirrors and one-off quirky objects.

No antiques fair would be complete without a glittering array of fine jewellery and highlights include a pair of fancy yellow and pink diamond cluster earrings (£4,950) or an Art Deco diamond and platinum ring (£3,950) both from Greenstein Antiques. From T Robert comes an 18 carat gold Ceylon sapphire and diamond flower pendant/brooch, c 1850 (£7,400) and Shapiro & Co has an 18 carat gold multi-diamond and South Sea pearl brooch, c 1970 (£5,750).
