Howards Jewellers - 18ct Gold Pearl Brooch, By Georg Jensen £1,950.

ABOUT THIS FAIR:

It's spring and that is a byword for the Chelsea Flower Show which will be returning with another virtual version this year from 17-22 May and the enterprising members of The Cotswold Art & Antiques Dealers’ Association (CADA) will be once again holding their  CADA Virtual Flower Show on Instagram to coincide with the virtual Spring Chelsea. In 2021, after 108 years, The Chelsea Flower Show in real life is moving to an autumn date, however, members of The Cotswold Art & Antique Dealers’ Association are keeping with the May dates for The CADA Flower Show.

Members will celebrate with a selection of decorative, florally inspired furniture, carpets and rugs, jewellery, antique boxes, paintings and prints, textiles and glass, from art and antiques dealers in the Cotswolds. The florally inspired items will appear over the six days in different posts featuring the individual dealers’ stock on the CADA’s Instagram page

The members of CADA will dip into their beautiful inventory to show pieces for sale via Instagram including a large and sumptuous Victorian three-fold screen with exceptional decoupage panels cascading with garlands, unusually decorated on both sides and framed with gold edging in an ebonised wood frame, circa 1880, £650 from Prichard Antiques in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. Delomosne & Son Ltd in North Wraxall, Wiltshire, has several 18th century glasses with engraved floral decorations, including a facetted stem wine glass with engraved flower and bee, circa 1770, £380 and a wineglass with an ovoid bowl engraved with a stylised rose and daisy on a double series opaque twist stem, circa 1770-80, £280.

There will be countless botanic inspired artworks to relish and Trinity House Paintings in Broadway, Worcestershire, is showing ‘Blossom’ and ‘Roses in a Jug’, different oil on canvas paintings by contemporary Cheltenham based artist Francesca Currie, £7,950 and £2,200 respectively, whilst Architectural Heritage in Taddington, Gloucestershire, has the aptly named ‘Flowers’, an oil on canvas by Bryan Kneale MBE RA (b.1930), circa 1956, POA. More traditional works come from Astley House – Fine Art & Interiors in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire with a pair of large decorative floral paintings ‘Chrysanthemums’ and ‘Roses’ by Margaret Saunders-Armstrong from 1893. Haynes Fine Art of Broadway, Worcestershire has a good mix of traditional and contemporary paintings from Oliver Clare’s 'Still Life of Birds Nest and Flowers on a Mossy Bank', oil on canvas, £5,750 to 'Walking Amongst Wild Flowers' oil on board by Dorothea Sharp, £38,500 and ‘Still Life’ oil on board by Donald McIntyre, £5,980. ‘Cottage Window Sill’ is an attractive monochrome linocut, from an unknown artist, priced at £75 from Elizabeth Harvey-Lee.

Sarah Colegrave Fine Art has two watercolours ‘Apple’ and ‘Plum’ describing the various stages from bud to flower, by the outstanding illustrator Edward Detmold , signed with his monogram and dated 1918, each for sale at £1,900. These were commissioned by the publisher J.M. Dent, but never published.  W.R. Harvey & Co (Antiques) Ltd, from Witney in Oxfordshire, has a pair of rare early 18th century Besler horticultural engravings ‘White Mustard & Myagrum”, and “Ageratum”. These are from Besler’s Hortus Eystettensis copper plate engravings with fine hand colour. The plates are from ‘Hortus Eystettensis’, one of the earliest and most famous works in the field. It is a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Prince Bishop of Eichstatt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen.

W.R. Harvey & Co (Antiques) Ltd also has an exceptional and important Regency period decorated and gilt simulated satinwood library chair. All the panels of the frame are decorated with flowers and leaves, circa 1810, £8,750. To add colour to a room, look no further than Legge Carpets Ltd from Summertown, Oxfordshire with a vast array of carpets and rugs for sale. Amongst the floral offerings is a very rare version of Manet’s ‘Peonies in a Vase on a Pedestal’ in the medium of carpet, a highly unusual and successful rendition made by Gobelins in 1942 and still bearing the original label on the back. It is signed "Devillain”, probably the name of the weaver, along with a copy of Manet’s signature in the bottom right-hand corner, £2,950. Another fine piece is This a late 19th century Tibetan Khaden, which is a sleeping or a sitting rug. The field design follows the classic pattern of three medallions filled with flower heads, lotus flowers in this case, £2,950.

Antique textiles for sale include a 19th century Nim Suzani (or half-size Suzani) from Uzbekistan. The silk embroidery on a hand-woven cotton ground was worked in four panels and would have been part of a dowry. A wealth of circular, star-shaped and fan-shaped flower heads decorate the field in a lattice of long palmettes and in the meandering border, £4,950 from Legge Carpets Ltd. Witney Antiques from Witney in Oxfordshire specialises in early needlework and samplers and has a fine Norfolk darning sampler worked by Diana Gostling in 1782 and a finely embroidered 18th century lady’s stomacher, both individually priced in the region of £4,500.

Jewellery from Howards Jewellers in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire in the north of the Cotswolds is an ideal place to look for floral inspired bijouterie. Heading down to the south of the Cotswolds, you will find Moxhams Antiques in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire with a large Continental still life of a parrot with fruit and flowers; oil on canvas, circa. 1750, £5,250 as well as a fine Georgian sarcophagus-shaped tea caddy with two tones of tortoiseshell inlaid with engraved mother of pearl flowers and leaves; circa 1830, £3,500. On the subject of tea caddies, Mark Goodger Antiques has a Hungarian sycamore floral painted tea caddy with gold highlights under a glass top, circa 1800, £1,150 and an exquisitely painted Belgian spa penwork tea caddy, veneered in sycamore, with beautifully coloured flower basket to the top and other floral and foliage decorations, circa 1839, £1,995. Also for sale are some 19th century florally decorated sewing boxes in papier mâché, coromandel and onyx.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

The first CADA Flower Show took place in 2020 at the same time that the Royal Horticultural Society held a virtual show, as the pandemic prevented The Chelsea Flower Show from taking place.

As pandemic restrictions are easing, shops have been opening up, so it will be possible for people to visit many of the dealers in their galleries and premises around the Cotswolds, which encompasses parts of five counties. Please call ahead before visiting because not all the CADA dealers have shops or galleries open to the public on a daily basisAll member details are listed on the CADA website and will be featured on the relevant Instagram post.
