The 2019 London season of fine art and antiques fairs opens with The Mayfair Antiques & Fine Art Fair, an annual event, which takes place at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, for the seventh consecutive year, organised by The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited. Opening for four days on Thursday 10 until Sunday 13 January 2019, the fair brings in an international audience, who appreciate the wide variety of disciplines offered by some 40 experts. The majority of the exhibitors are members of one or both of the two professional dealer associations – BADA and LAPADA The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers.
Many of the dealers are returning to show their latest purchases. A few are new to the fair: Mitofsky XX Century Fine Art and Design hasn’t exhibited at a fair for over ten years, but has decided to join The Mayfair Antiques & Fine Art Fair showing highlights such as a French Art Deco exotic wood, palm wood, ebony and ivory inlaid cabinet by Charlotte Chauchet-Guilleré (1878-1964), c.1921, £16,750 and a pretty little Emile Gallé glass vase, £10,250.
From Lisbon comes J Baptista, a family firm dedicated to antique, vintage and modern jewellery and silver from Portuguese and international origin, since its inception in the sixties. Amongst the pieces the gallery plans to show when exhibiting at The Mayfair Antiques & Fine Art Fair are a 19ct gold vintage bracelet from the 1940s/50s, bearing the maker’s mark of António Pereira de Castro Godinho, £10,000 and a French floral brooch by Mauboussin comprising diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds set in platinum and gold, c.1930, with a price tag of £15,000.
LuxdLux, purveyor of top designer handbags and accessories from well-known designers like Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton, is bringing a wide selection. Highlights for sale include an extremely rare Hermès limited edition shiny crocodile Birkin bag, 2007, £49,000 and a limited edition Chanel fuchsia pink python skin wallet on chain, 20cm model, 2015, £3,950.
