The Spring Chelsea Antiques Fair

After a two year hiatus, Chelsea Antiques Fair has returned to the end of March – a spot it has traditionally held for many of its 70 years - and we open NEXT WEEK. COVID 19 restrictions caused us to move the Fair to September last year and it was so successful that we are delighted to announce that there will be TWO fairs this year: Spring and Autumn. Once again Wick Antiques will be at Stand 23 in the Nelson room, on both sides of the aisle. Please email or ring Charlie for e-tickets.

Charlie has dreamt up the idea of two completely different styles for the two halves of the room. ‘His’ side will be English and European furniture and works of art, while ‘my’ side will be Islamic and Oriental art. Being competitive he is determined to sell more than me! We shall see.

I will be selling porcelain, earthenware, tiles, silver, bronzes and cloisonne, which means I will need lots of display cabinets and shelves. Luckily we have many to choose from. At the top is an extremely unusual Meiji period drum shaped cabinet which has revolving tambour sides to access the display space. Next is an intricate pagoda like piece by Morant & Co in the Chinese style. Acting as wings at the front of my stand will be these asymmetrical Art Deco shelves with an Oriental flavour.

Charlie has chosen this free standing bookcase by Gillows. It retains its lovely original colour and deep red leather. Attractive decorative elements, as seen in the original design for Ferguson & Co, are the gadrooned edging to the top and dummy books on two sides.

If there is room, these fretwork shelves in the Chippendale style will be ideal on one of the walls. The graduated shelves accommodate all sizes of books or works of art.

Meanwhile this rare and unusual double-sided cabinet by François Linke will be on the 2Covet Collective stand. As it is perfect for showing a collection it will be filled with interesting Treen objects.

10% of profits from sales originating from this newsletter will be donated to the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine via The British Red Cross and The Salvation Army
