Antiques News & Fairs - Art & Antiques for Everyone 15 – 18 November 2018

Pressing Matters - an important exhibition of irons dating back 300 years.

 

 

ABOUT THIS FAIR:

It promises to be a bumper edition of Art & Antiques for Everyone held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham from 15-18 November 2018. 

Quotes from regular exhibitors Guy Dennler, Guy Dennler Antiques: "Last time here I sold to clients from Spain and America. The NEC attracts collectors from across the UK and beyond.", Gavin Morgan, Morgan Strickland Decorative Arts: "Selling to new customers is so important and the NEC Fair is a reliable provider." and Steve Sly from Steve Sly Japanese Art: "With clients from across the world looking for serious Asian Art, the fair is always one of our best events." will be encouraging for new and returning exhibitors joining for this Winter edition of the long running show, now in its 32nd year: Issacs Jewellers, North Yorkshire, Michael Longmore Jewellery, Grays Antiques Market, Mozeris Fine Antiques, Tom Rooth Fine Art, Bags of Glamour, Chester’s Farm Antiques, J.Dickinson Maps & Prints, Martins Silver, Omar Ramsden, Ramsden and Carr, A.E.Jones, Liberty Designs and Silversmiths, Moorcroft Pottery Cellar and Richard & Janet Parker.

Responding to increasing demand from buyers in the Asian market and requests from exhibitors at the fair, organisers Clarion Events are currently putting the finishing touches to a new version of the Art & Antiques for Everyone website in Mandarin. It is expected the website will operation before the fair commences.

The main exhibition for November 2018 will be Pressing Matters with more than 300 irons dating from the early 19th Century to the mid-1900s on display and will be mounted by members of the British Iron Collectors (BIC).

BIC representative Penny Savill told ANF: "There will be a large range of iron designs demonstrating various heating methods. We will have irons from foundries in the West Midlands and there will be specialist irons, such as hat and travel irons. We will be showing the development of irons with a selection from around the world. It’s going to be a fascinating exhibition not only for collectors but anyone with an interest in domestic history."

Among the irons will be examples of gas and petrol irons, goffering and crimping irons, hat and flower irons, travel irons, children’s toy irons and associated pieces such as laundry stoves, a linen press and trivets and crested irons.

Another display of note from regular exhibitor, Brighton based ceramic dealer Tony Horsley who published a book in 1999 on porcelain candle extinguishers entitled Distinguished Extinguishers. It was 140 pages thick with a soft cover and was enthusiastically received by collectors as there was no publication on the subject. Now in 2018, Tony is launching a new publication entitled Distinguished  Extinguishers 2 at the Art & Antiques for Everyone winter fair.

In the early days of the research, Tony was able to access the archives of the factories such as Minton, Copeland Spode, Worcester, Brontë, Doulton, Avalon, and Francesca, but sadly, over the years, most factories have closed or no longer produce extinguishers, hence the archives are locked away in vaults or hard to access. Many new unrecorded examples of previously unknown extinguishers are included in the book, as are photographs of rare extinguishers where previously only a black-and-white photograph from a factory pattern book existed. Sometimes, a name was listed in factory records, but had no drawing or photograph to show the image, but over the years, these rare extinguishers have turned up in collections and have now been identified.

 

 

Tony will be exhibiting for sale numerous display cases full of candle extinguishers covering most of the factories listed in the book, along with several examples illustrated in the book. The cost of the book is £45.00
