 Antiques News & Fairs - The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair 17-19 May 2024

Jacksons Antique - Pair of French empire candelabra featuring Apollo and Daphne, £11,975.

ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair returns for three days in May to the grounds of the National Trust’s Petworth House, Petworth, West Sussex from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 May 2024. Unusually, this event has taken place successfully every year since its inception, and has always been extremely well attended by collectors, interior designers, homemakers from around the UK and abroad. Adding to the profile of the fair is the wholehearted support from the businesses in the local market town of Petworth who put on a great show for the influx of visitors and this year will be no exception.

Some 60 exhibitors are gathering in the purpose-built marquee with their latest and finest stock. Tom Rooth is currently in the Cambrian mountains of Wales creating his honeycomb to create a buzz on his stand for his tremendously popular hand drawn ceramics. Honeycomb by Tom Rooth, comprises a number of individually underglazed pencil on glazed earthenware, surrounded by wooden frames covered in 23.5 carat gold leaf, signed, numbered, inscribed and dated (on the reverse). Queen bees are fired with gold lustre and are priced at £225 (the bees are £195 each), with £10 of each piece sold going to the Wildlife Trusts.

Gladwell & Patterson is returning having debuted at this fair last May, where contemporary British artist Peter Symonds proved most popular. The success of Symonds’ paintings has encouraged him to paint a series of paintings around West Sussex and his home county of Surrey and Gladwell & Patterson is delighted to confirm that he will be on their stand over the course of the weekend as artist-in-residence. One such painting, Bosham Harbour, has already been completed and is planned for display ticketed at £8,500. A highlight on the stand was painted by local artist Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979). Wildflower Wood is an oil on canvas abstract landscape by Hitchen, painted towards the end of his life, in 1975, after he had left London for Lavington Common, very close to Petworth, and is priced at £`160,000.

John Stanley of Blackbrook Gallery is bringing the finest painting he has ever had the privilege to have pass through his hands - “a real historic piece.” Weighing the Fleece, an oil on canvas with a price tag of £45,000, is signed and dated T. Weaver Pxt 1817 and depicts the landowner, his factor and his shepherd recording the weight of the fleeces from his two rams and ewe with the panoramic landscape behind with cattle and sheep grazing.

Jeroen Markies Art Deco has an impressive selection of Art Deco and mid-century furniture and accessories for sale, amongst which is a pair of French mid-century moustache backed club chairs in vintage green leather upholstery, circa 1940 and a pair of French Art Deco club chairs, moustache backed with studded back and walnut feet in vintage green leather upholstery £4,250; an Art Deco Woburn sideboard by Gordon Russell, designed by Dick Russell in 1933, £2,650; as well as a satin birch veneered cocktail cabinet, £4,650 and a burr walnut writing desk, £3,450, both by Heal’s of London, circa 1935.
