ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Decorative Arts including a rare Lalique glass car mascot from the Jazz Age will be a major attraction at The Pavilions of Harrogate Decorative, Antiques & Art Fair at the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, 25th – 27th January 2019.

Exhibitor Janice Kehoe who trades as Solo Antiques has been selling Decorative Arts for more than 20 years in a career that has taken her around the country and onto TV as an expert in her field. She will be showing a range of glass, bronze sculpture and other pieces.

Janice told ANF: “The craftsmanship, design and style of this period is stunning and the quality of workmanship superb. The skill used to make such beautiful and detailed pieces is incredible.
I am often asked for advice on starting a collection. Decide what you like, find out about it and talk to a dealer you trust – dealers are always happy to talk about their stock. The piece of advice I would give to a collector starting out is to buy the best – if you have £500 to spend, don’t buy a lot of small items, wait until you find the really good piece and buy one item for the whole amount, whether its for a piece from specific artists like Galle, Daum, Loetz, Moser, and Rene Lalique or sculpture from Chiparus, Preiss or Lorenzl or Arts and Crafts from Newlyn, Liberty or Keswick.”

Among items for sale from Solo Antiques will be a superb bronze model of a female dancer with a flute by the renowned sculpture Josef Lorenzl dating from the 1930’s and 56cm tall is priced at £9,500.

Antique Karen (New exhibitor) - Jean-Antoine Lepine was born in 1720 and moved to Paris in 1744 as an apprentice watchmaker to Andre-Charles Caron, clockmaker to Louis XV. He married Caron's daughter in 1756 and began making watches under his own name shortly after. By 1762 he had been appointed Maitre Horloger (master horologist) and within 4 years was appointed Horloger du Roi (clockmaker to the King). He made watches for Louis XV, Louis XVI, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Napoleon Bonaparte.  He created the L'epine calibre which is what characterises all mechanical watches, along with many other modifications and inventions including the"lost hinge" watchcases and later was credited for introducing hand setting on the rear of watches.  This watch is jewelled on a skeleton back with jewel set hands set into an 18 carat gold case. The fact there is a crown design within the skeletonised rear may mean that the watch was indeed one of the ones made for the French Royal family. It is priced at £3400.00
