Butterfly Garden, 2013, porcelain and black stain, edition of 10 by Katharine Morling from Long & Ryle.
LONDON.- Ideal for Christmas, birthdays or indeed any special occasion, LAPADA Gift Vouchers are the perfect gift for collectors and lovers of art and antiques.

Available in denominations of £50 and £100, LAPADA Gift Vouchers may be used as payment or part payment for a purchase from any of the 600 LAPADA members, within one year from date of issue. In addition to members’ shops and galleries, vouchers can also be used to purchase items from LAPADA dealers exhibiting at all major antiques fairs.

LAPADA is the UK’s largest association of art and antiques dealers representing the whole spectrum of fine art: from antiques and objets d’art, furniture, carpets, tapestries, antiquities, clocks, ceramics, silver and jewellery, to paintings and much more. In 2009, LAPADA introduced a new arm to the Association, LAPADA Modern, which represents the growing number of established dealers in modern and contemporary art and design offering something for all tastes.

To be admitted as a member of LAPADA, dealers are vetted on the quality of their stock, expertise and integrity of their business and once approved must agree to abide by the Association’s strict Code of Practice. Members can then display the coveted and respected LAPADA golden chandelier symbol meaning they are safe in the knowledge that they are speaking to and buying from an experienced dealer.

The next annual LAPADA Fair will be held in the heart of Mayfair in Berkeley Square from 24th - 28th September 2014. As the UK’s premiere art and antiques fair it is a must- visit event for anyone interested in purchasing rare and interesting items.

LAPADA has four apps available to download from itunes: LAPADA and LAPADA Modern are comprehensive directories of all the members, what they sell and where to find them; the LAPADA Fair Berkeley Square app, which offers information about the fair exhibitors; and lastly the fourth is LAPADA Quiz, launched in 2013, is a fun way to test your antiques knowledge.

To buy LAPADA Gift Vouchers, email Max Stiegler on or +44 (0)20 7823 3511 and ask for the leaflet and order form.
