ABOUT THIS FAIR:

20 March 2020 - UPDATED INFORMATION

 

Ingrid Nilson, director of The Antiques Dealers Fairs Limited, has today (Friday 20 March) announced the rescheduling of The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair originally planned to take place from 15 to 17 May. The marquee will now be erected and opened with some 60 dealers exhibiting from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 September  2020. 

 

Held at the National Trust's Petworth House and Park, Petworth in West Sussex, the delay will hopefully mean that visitors to the antiques fair can also enjoy the treasures of Petworth House when it reopens.  Currently, Petworth House is closed, but the National Trust has opened the grounds for people to enjoy the beautiful 'Capability' Brown designed 700 acre deer park and Pleasure Garden free-of-charge.

 

More information and updates can be found via social media or at Petworth Park 

 

PREVIEW:


The flagship event of The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited, Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair, at Petworth House and Park in Petworth, returns from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 September 2020.  Located in a specially erected marquee in the 700-acre deer park there will be around 60 dealers who will stage a diverse and enticing array of traditional and contemporary paintings and sculpture; jewellery; clocks and vintage watches; glass; silver; ceramics; historical medals; antique enamels; traditional, mid-century and Art Deco furniture; lighting and objets d’art.  A feast for interior design enthusiasts, collectors and visitors looking for an entertaining day out.

The fair hosts an eclectic mix of dealers offering a wide selection of some of the best decorative arts.  Stand-out pieces include 17th century tapestries, metalware, English Delft pottery, wooden carvings, treen and needlework from new exhibitor Elaine Phillips Antiques; Victorian and contemporary bronze sculpture from Garret & Hurst Sculpture and a handsome Standing Cockerel cold painted bronze by Franz Xavier Bergman (1861-1936) from Hickmet Fine Arts. Humorous 18th century hand coloured mezzotints priced around £850 each can be found with S & J Abbott Ceramics Plus, as well as antique English porcelain from Jupiter Antiques, 18th and 19th century British pottery from Roger de Ville Antiques, a striking Art Deco silver and gilded bronze study of an Egyptian dancer by Demétre Chiparus, c.1925, £6,250 from Solo Antiques and a wide variety of silver and glass from Stephen Kalms Antiques and J H Bourdon-Smith Ltd

Newcomers exhibiting at the fair include Burlington bringing fine 19th and 20th century British and European paintings; Karen Taylor Fine Art and Tom Rooth Fine Art, both specialists in British and European art from the 18th century to the present day; and Timothy Millett Ltd who has dealt in historical medals and works of art for the last 35 years.  He  will bring an extremely rare medal that is bound to attract a lot of attention is the commemorative medal made for the defeat of the Spanish Armada, dated 1588.  The obverse records the destruction of the Armada being driven onto the rocks while the reverse sarcastically satirises the vain attempts of the Pope, the Emperor Philip II, the Duke of Guise and other princes who had formed a confederacy against Elizabeth I. This medal, of which there are relatively few known, would have been produced at the time purely as propaganda, being handed out as a diplomatic gift to the protestant hierarchy.  The price for this piece of history dating back to the 16th century is £1,250.

Pieces for sale of local connection or provenance to the vicinity include a watercolour of Battle Abbey by John Inigo Richards (1731-1810) priced at £2,500 from Karen Taylor Fine Art.  The watercolour is inscribed 'outside gate Battle Abbey 1792'.  Battle Abbey, a partially ruined Benedictine Abbey founded by William the Conqueror was built on the site of the Battle of Hastings at Senlac Hill.  On the stand will also be a watercolour by Paul Sandby RA (1731-1809) of A View of Tunbridge, Kent inscribed and dated Tunbridge 1788.  This delightful view of Tonbridge (the town of bridges) shows the Great Bridge over the river Tunn with the keep of Tonbridge Castle in the background (POA).  Burlington is bringing an oil painting by Victorian artist Edward Wilkins Waite RBA (1854-1924) of Cornfields at Fittleworth (£12,000) or for country sports enthusiasts, Haynes Fine Art – London & Cotswolds is showing On the Downs by George Wright (1860-1942) priced at £25,000.  George Wright was considered one of the best sporting artists of his time
