ABOUT THIS FAIR:

With a successful relaunch in autumn 2017 under its belt, The Northern Antiques Fair will return with a flourish and a number of new exhibitors from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 October 2018 to the Harrogate Convention Centre. 

Fair director Ingrid Nilson told ANF: "Building on the positive feedback from The Northern Antiques Fair in Harrogate last autumn, it is heartening that the exhibitor list has grown significantly for the return in October. We welcome back specialist dealers who have not taken part for a few years and look forward to an exciting event covering a broad spectrum of art and antiques. With items from antiquities to the present day offered for sale, the fair encompasses thousands of years of design and craftsmanship to delight both connoisseurs and those simply looking for a shopping experience with a difference".

Dating back to 1951, the fair has held an enviable reputation in the north of England for being Harrogate’s most prestigious antiques event. 

Exhibitors for 2018 include Elaine Phillips Antiques, Ellis Fine Art, Graham Reed Fine Art, Graham Ruddock, Jack Shaw & Co, Mark Buckley Antiques, Sutcliffe Galleries and Walker Galleries.  Other well-known names from the top London fairs circuit such as Garret & Hurst Sculpture, Haynes Fine Art - London & Cotswolds, Licht & Morrison, Mark J West, Millington Adams, Hickmet Fine Arts and Stephen Kalms Antiques are also exhibiting.

Highlights include ‘Clearing the Wood – A bright Autumnal Day’ by Victorian artist Sidney Richard Percy (1821-1886) on Sutcliffe Galleries stand priced at £38,000.  This work was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1853.  As Percy matured as a landscape painter he increasingly sought his inspiration from Yorkshire.  Humberside artist Henry Redmore (1820-1887) is recognised as one of the UK’s greatest marine painters and Walker Galleries are showing an excellent example, ‘Lowtide, Flamborough, East Yorkshire’, painted in 1868, £7,950.   Haynes Fine Art - will bring works by such luminaries as Edgar Degas, Sir William Russell Flint, Henry Moore, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edward Seago and Dorothea Sharp.  Other galleries exhibiting include Cambridge Fine Art, Blackbrook Gallery and Rowles Fine Art, also joined by Ashleigh House Fine Art, Granta Fine Art and J Dickinson Maps & Prints.  

Serious collectors of antique ceramics will be excited by a fine Royal Worcester reticulated vase by George Owen, who perfected the art of pierced porcelain (also known as reticulated porcelain).  Exhibited by Valerie Main Ltd, the vase is signed G Owen, circa 1910 and priced at £10,750.  From Graham Ruddock is a fine quality Rockingham card rack, £620 – the Rockingham Pottery was a 19th century manufacturer of porcelain of international repute based in Swinton near Rotherham in the West Riding of Yorkshire.  

A stand which is always buzzing with interest from across the generations is likely to be Odyssey, specialist dealer in ancient and medieval antiquities and coins.  A number of young children begin their passion for collecting by being intrigued by the history of bygone cultures and ages of many of the pieces. Exhibiting for the first time, Odyssey is bringing an ancient Greek child’s rattle in the shape of a pig, moulded from pale clay dating from the late 5th to early 6th century BC.  Rattles were used to distract and soothe a crying infant, but they also had another purpose: it was thought that the sound of a rattle would ward off evil spirits.

Jewellery connoisseurs will not be disappointed with the range on display from Howards Jewellers including a  demantoid garnet and diamond lizard brooch, circa 1880, to a 1980’s Burmese cabochon ruby and diamond cluster ring.  Other exceptional pieces include an Art Nouveau pendant set with blister pearls, diamonds and opals, circa 1895 from Licht & Morrison, a 1960’s 18 carat yellow gold, wide dress bracelet, £4,950 from Saul Greenstein and 18 carat white gold, ruby and diamond earrings, circa 1960, £12,500 from Shapiro & CoW Hamond of Whitby is taking a stand devoted to Whitby jet, an ancient organic gemstone.  Whitby jet is found off the majestic shores of Whitby, one of Yorkshire’s fishing towns and W Hamond has been transforming it into desirable jewellery since 1860.  Queen Victoria started wearing Whitby jet following the death of Prince Albert, igniting the popularity of it in Victorian times as mourning jewelley.
