Dealers from around the UK will soon be gathering at the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair to take part in the event’s 25th year celebrations.
The fair will feature inspirational, unusual and decorative antiques and art. This includes textiles, pottery, metal work and folk art.
According to the organiser of the fair, Sue Ede, the event will be a prime occasion for collectors, interior designers and those looking for inspiration for their own homes. Ede also believes that the event will be a source of inspiration for those who want to decorate in a vintage style.
A large number of exhibitors will be attending, including a group of new dealers who have been nicknamed the ‘Young Guns of the Antique Trade’ by the Antiques News and Fairs editor, Gail McCleod. The ‘Young Guns’ have worked hard to generate new interest in the world of vintage design and antiques.
Dealers will be exhibiting painted antique furniture, mirrors from Italy and France, antique sofas, lighting and more. The author of Miller’s Price Guides, Judith Miller, will be appearing at the celebratory event to sign her latest book. Miller has produced a number of books that are considered indispensable for collectors.
Antique furniture is becoming increasingly popular with a younger generation, with pieces used to create a vintage look. A varied selection of pieces can be found in Lancashire, including antique sofas in Preston. The fair itself will take place at the Pavilion in Bath, from the 7th to the 9th of March, with around 45 exhibitors attending in total.
