ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Art & Antiques for Everyone at the NEC in Birmingham has occupied an important position in the UK antiques fairs calendar for more than 30 years and its main appeal is the layering of sections giving visitors access to dealers from all levels of the antiques world: dealers with galleries in London’s West End showing their finest works with prices up to £100,000; to occasional dealers with a passionate desire to buy and sell all kinds of unusual items from early toys and dolls to vintage fabrics, unusual memorabilia and rare scientific instruments, with many exhibits at less than £20.

The Summer edition of Antiques & Art for Everyone 18-21 July 2019 will be the debut show for new owner Dan Leyland of MAD Events Ltd who recently acquired the venerable event from owners Clarion Events Ltd.  Dan told ANF:
"I’m delighted with the trade’s response to the change of organiser – it’s been extremely positive! I’ve been visiting major fairs around the country, from Yorkshire to Sussex, and dealers have been so welcoming. They understand that unhindered by some of the restrictions of a large corporate company, we are now able to undertake changes that will allow us to develop the fair with the interests of our customers – the exhibitors – first and foremost."

Kembery Clocks - An important 18th century French mantel clock by Vandercruse. With a gilt bronze case with two love birds, lyre and musical instruments to the top and a pedestal tripod table with removable urn.  A convex enamel dial signed 'Vandercruse a Paris' with fine gilt hands and 5 minute outer markers. Vandercruse is recorded in Baillies' Watchmakers and Clockmakers of The World' book as being master of the clockmaking company in 1778.  Priced at £7,250.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

At recent events, Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Scandinavian works of art have all proved extremely popular with trade buyers, collectors and homemakers, while Mid-Century Modern, 20th Century works of art selected contemporary pieces have broadened the fair’s appeal to younger collectors. The fair continues to offer a fantastic selection of traditional antiques, from Asian art and artefacts, fine art, early pottery, designer lighting, classic English town and country furniture, fine porcelain to 18th and 19th century glass, bronzes, silver and jewellery from fine 19th century examples to Russian Faberge and French and American costume pieces.

The frisson of a new owner in place has attracted a number of dealers to return to the Summer edition including Alison Davey of A.D.Antiques, 20th ceramics specialists, who told ANF: "Dan has the ear of the dealers and is sure take on board our needs. It’s vital that this fair succeeds for the good of the whole trade. I look forward to being there in July."

Others returning who are not regulars at the summer event include Melody Antiques, oak furniture specialists, Walton House Antiques, furniture specialists, Richard Price & Associates clock specialists and Adrian Phippen Fine Art with other exhibitors increasing their display sizes including Hickmet Fine Art and Art of Imagination.

The Summer edition is planned to run along similar lines to previous events with exciting changes for the Winter Show, 29 October - 4 November 2019 to be announced soon.

The regular exhibition slot for the Summer edition will be filled by a Titanic Postcards Display with rare, vintage, classic and collectable postcards presented by the Postcard Traders Association, postcards from the past 120 years focusing on RMS Titanic, the history of Shipping, Transport and the ever popular comic postcards of Donald McGill and others will go on display. In addition, this special exhibition will feature a number of modern postcards and will seek to explain the important role of the postcard in history.
