mayfair antiques and fine art fair 2017Antiques tend to take a back seat in the run up to Christmas. This allows us to sit back and enjoy the festive break and a well-earned rest. However, as you can imagine, we start getting restless towards the end of the year and begin looking forward to our next outing on the fairs circuit.

Mayfair Antiques & Fine Art Fair 2017

Our first fair in 2017 was situated at the luxurious London Marriott Hotel in the heart of London’s famous Mayfair. This exciting event allowed us to begin the New Year ‘with a bang’.

Eagerly anticipated by collectors and dealers alike, the Mayfair Art & Antiques Fair boasts the finest choice of antiques and fine art available anywhere in the U.K. so early in the new year.

The weather was on our side this year with double-figure temperatures all week and not a hint of snow.

The opening day started off with a great deal of excitement and keen interest from serious collectors.

This was nicely rounded off by the evening party, which featured live music and complimentary drinks to keep the mood buzzing with energy.

By the end of the evening, it was evident that Art Deco was continuing its rise in popularity with strong sales of sculpture, glass and furniture from our stand and others alike.

The following days attracted a large number of visitors. There was encouraging business from overseas buyers including sales to Brazil, South East Asia, Russia and Israel.

We always consider that our first fair in the New Year will give us an indication of the market we might expect in the months ahead and we have been very encouraged with both business achieved and firm interests discussed at this prestigious show.

Some star sales at the show included the below:
