A luxury antiques weekend is set for March 9 – 11 in Northumberland.
This boutique-style fair will bring together around 20 specialist antique dealers, mostly members of either the British Antique Dealers’ Association or LAPADA The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers.
Anyone looking for unique and unusual furnishings and accessories for the home will not be disappointed. This is the sole opportunity in the year for the private buyer, collector and interior designer to find the very best antiques and fine art all under one roof in Northumberland.
Jesmond furniture dealer Graham Smith Antiques is bringing a fine Chippendale design mahogany partners’ desk signed Sopwith & Co Limited, Newcastle c. 1900 and priced at £5,950. Desks such as this were bought by many of the large shipping manufacturers along the River Tyne in the 19th and early 20th century.
John Nicholson & Dunelm Fine Art is bringing ‘Shrimping’, an oil painting still in its original gilt frame, priced at £8,750, by Isaac Henzell (1815-1878), who was born in Sheffield, but lived much of his life in Newcastle and on Tyneside. Henzell exhibited at the Royal Academy 71 times.
The fair is at the Macdonald Linden Hall Hotel Golf Country Club, Longhorsley, near Morpeth. Tickets cost £5. For more information go to www.lindenhallfair.com or call the Antiques Dealers Fair on 01797 252030.
