About the Chelsea Antiques Fair:

Established in 1950, The Chelsea Antiques Fair is now re-launching as an annual event of approximately 38 fine quality, specialist dealers in traditional art & antiques with some added 20th Century sparkle offering a great variety of exquisite objects for sale.

A dynamic new layout will combine with the recently renovated interior of the Town Hall to offer a stylish and memorable occasion for connoisseurs as well as absolute beginners with prices starting from £100 going up to about £10,000.

Leading specialist antique dealers from across Britain offer for sale fine art and antiques valued at more than £5million at this popular 'boutique fair', now London's longest running antiques event.

Specialist displays feature town and country furniture, ceramics, oil and watercolor paintings, decorative prints, fine silver, glass, antiquities, Persian rugs, Art Deco mirrors and lighting, fine jewellery and objets de virtu.

The fair is popular not only with London and Chelsea collectors, many of who have been attending since the fair began in 1950, but also visitors in search of fine antiques. The American Ambassador, Michael Winner, Diana Rigg, Michael Portillo, Charlie Watts, Jeffrey Archer and Lady Thatcher have been visitors. In past years, antiques have been sold to visitors from Japan, Argentina, South Italy, Germany and Russia.

Since the demise of the Grosvenor House Antiques Fair, the Chelsea Fair is now the oldest Fair in Britain, and possibly the World!

When the Fair is not on, there are plenty of places to Buy Antiques in London and you can add your recommendations too.
