ABOUT THIS FAIR:

"We’re back at last!’ says Dan Leyland, Fair Director, unveiling the return of the Art & Antiques for Everyone Fair at the NEC, Birmingham, 25 – 28 November 2021.

Dan Leyland told ANF: "It’s going to be a celebratory event.  This is the one big antiques fair that everyone looks forward to, the fair that brings together dealers and collectors from every level of the art and antiques world and, above all, is always good for business."

The vast majority of exhibitors will be returning to the fair as usual and The Spode Society, due to stage an important loan display of ceramics by Josiah Spode and his successors in 2020, will return.

The Spode exhibition will feature approximately 170 examples of the finest Spode, demonstrating the strength of the factory and its continuing reputation for quality in design, decoration and innovation. It will include all periods and production of the factory from the first Spode period 1770 – 1833, the Copeland and Garrett period 1833 – 1847 and the Copeland period from 1847 to the 20th century. A number of very rare items will be included.

Active since 1986, the Spode Society was created for the study and enjoyment of the history and products of the Spode factory, its workforce and the Spode and Copeland families. Today, the Society is world-wide and brings together collectors and admirers of Spode, Copeland & Garrett, Copeland and more recent Spode wares.

Founded by Josiah Spode in 1770, the Spode factory perfected two extremely important techniques that were crucial to the worldwide success of the English pottery industry. Josiah Spode (1733–1797) perfected the technique for transfer printing in underglaze blue on fine earthenware, the development that led to the launch in 1816 of Spode's famous Blue Italian range, which has remained in production ever since. Josiah Spode is also credited with the formula for fine bone china that was generally adopted by the industry.

Commenting on behalf of Art & Antiques for Everyone, organiser Dan Leyland said: "I am delighted that the Spode Society have chosen our event to present such a prestigious and important display that will remind the world just how significant the Spode factory was in the history of our country’s ceramics production."

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Dan Leyland is excited to welcome visitors back and says: "Our November fair provides the ideal opportunity for anyone who collects or wants to decorate their home in style. The choice of pieces is huge, our standards are very high and our visitors come from all over the world. With prices from less than £20 to more than £20,000, there is something for the most discerning buyer and first-time collector."

With specialists in 18th, 19th and 20th century jewellery, including many eye-catching vintage handbags and costume pieces inspired by the Hollywood designers of the 1920’s and 30’s, the fair is a proven provider of inspiration for a special gift. For men, designer watches, cufflinks, tie pins, silver hip flasks, Art Deco drinks cabinets, cocktail shakers, vintage leather luggage and treasures from the Grand Tour qualify as desirable ‘Mantiques'.

The fair attracts more than ten thousand visitors over four days and has the unique appeal of bringing together dealers from all levels of the antiques world: dealers with galleries in London’s West End showing their finest works; to occasional dealers with a passionate desire to buy and sell all kinds of unusual items from early toys and dolls to vintage fabrics, unusual memorabilia and rare scientific instruments. The fair presents exhibitors in a variety of settings – experts with a stand showing their latest acquisitions to professionally lit roomset style displays designed to inspire.

The long running fair continues to offer a fantastic range of traditional antiques, from Asian art and artefacts, fine art, early pottery, designer lighting, classic English town and country furniture, fine porcelain to 18th and 19th century glass, bronzes, silver and jewellery.
