NORTHUMBERLAND.- The Luxury Antiques Weekend at Linden Hall returns to the Macdonald Linden Hall in Longhorsley, near Morpeth in Northumberland from Friday 12 until Sunday 14 March 2010. The third of seven fairs being organised by The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited around England, it is the most northerly.

The first of the exclusive boutique-style fine art and antiques fairs launched by Ingrid Nilson of The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited in 2008, it set the bar high for her future events. At Linden Hall this March, some 24 exhibitors, from across the UK, are coming together to offer jewellery, silver, furniture, paintings and watercolours, sculpture, oriental carpets, maps and prints, original book illustrations, glass, ceramics, clocks, arms and armour, antiquities, calling card cases, objets d’art and much more. All the dealers are members of the UK’s two leading associations - The British Antique Dealers’ Association and LAPADA, the Association of Art & Antiques Dealers.

For those interested in arms and armour, Garth Vincent Antique Arms and Armour from Lincolnshire has a superb example of a German footman’s armour, c 1575, priced at £25,000. There is an opportunity to own a Colt pistol, used in the American Civil War, complete with the original owner’s name engraved on the back-strap..."W. J. Willkinson Topeka Kansas 1856." Other pieces include long guns, flintlock pistols, sabres and Japanese swords. On Saturday 13 March, experts from the Alnwick-based Hotspur School of Defence is demonstrating fencing techniques taken directly from historical manuals, using some of the period swords displayed by Garth Vincent Antique Arms and Armour including rapier, broadsword and smallsword. There will also be copies of original fencing manuals on display for the public to view.

Local dealers from the north of England are joined by those from as far away as Sussex, Kent, Norfolk and Suffolk. From Cumbria comes BADA member Valerie Main Limited with an extensive range of quality Royal Worcester porcelain including a fine pot-pourri vase and cover decorated with highland cattle and signed by John Stinton, c 1918, selling for in the region of £13,000.

Angela Hone Watercolours from Buckinghamshire, London and Paris is bringing 19th and 20th century English and French watercolours and pastels.

One of the most popular models by the master animalier sculptor, Antoine-Louis Barye, is a lively and vigorous bronze study of an elephant running. 'Elephant du Senegal Courant', c 1879, is £6,250 from Sussex dealers Garret & Hurst Sculpture, who are also bringing a captivatingly rotund ‘Friar Tuck’ bronze by Adelaide Pandiani, c.1877, priced at £4,195.
