CHESHIRE.- A superb collection of unique objets d’art, paintings and decorative pieces from the past four hundred years have gone on sale at The Tatton Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair, 4th - 6th January, the first major prestige antiques fair in the UK in 2013.

Forty-five specialist dealers from the Northwest and across the country present a wide range of high quality fine art, sculpture, antiques and accessories including furniture from the 18th to mid-20th century, period lighting, contemporary and traditional paintings, clocks, porcelain, pottery, glass, Oriental and European works of art, Persian carpets, metalwork, Old Master drawings and much more.

Taking place in the spacious setting of Tatton Park’s Tenant’s Hall and an adjoining pavilion, it’s an event always popular in the aftermath of the Christmas season, a time when many people choose to redecorate and renew their homes. ‘We’ve got a wide range of period furnishings to suit every taste,’ explains organiser Sue Ede. ‘With furniture specialists such as Church Street Antiques from Altrincham and Melody’s from Chester, the fair can provide everything from luxurious chaise longues to farmhouse tables and chairs.’

Paintings are always a major attraction with traditional and contemporary oils and watercolours for the most discerning connoisseur and first time collector. The specialist galleries include Jo Bennett from Altrincham, showing collectable works by Geoffrey Key, Sue Brown, Phil George and David C Lyons; Phoenix Fine Art from Knutsford with original watercolours by well-known 18th and 19th century English watercolourists, and Callaghan Fine Paintings from Shrewsbury with works by Antoine Blanchard, Augustine Lalou, Donald McIntyre and Marcel Dyf.

Fine silver and jewellery are also very popular. Plaza from Cheshire, Brieve Antiques from North Wales, Shapiro & Co. from Bond Street and Anderson Jones from London offer a wide selection of classic, vintage and decorative pieces. Malka Levine and S. & A. Marsh from London provide 19th and 20th century silver.

Among the ceramics specialists John Newton from Yorkshire promises 19th century pieces by Meissen and other factories and 20th century Continental porcelain in silver overlay, while Candice Horley will be showing Rosenthal figures.

In other areas, Olde Time from Norfolk is specialising in English and French carriage and mantel clocks while M & N Rugs from Manchester is showing a colourful range of Persian and Oriental carpets.

With such a wide range of exhibits there is something for everyone, from less than £20 for a Victorian silver spoon to more than £50,000 for the first oil paintings and original sculpture. Quality is maintained across the fair and visitors are expected from across the Midlands and Northwest.

Sue Ede says: ‘The fair has been running since the early 1960s and is widely known to be a showcase for fine antiques and works of art. Collectors and home furnishers are always looking for new inspiration and our exhibitors can be relied upon to provide stock with unique appeal’.
