UPDATE (21-26 January): The 2014 Winter Decorative Fair is in full swing with some great objects on show: here are some of the more unique, funky and fabulous items we’ve spotted, along with stories on some of our posters and their new homes. We look forward to seeing you!

PW0061_1_m  This stunning original 1944 poster was bought by a couple who got married at St Paul’s and we’re delighted it found such a great new home! (“The Proud City – A new view of St Paul’s Cathedral from Bread Street” issued by London Underground during World War Two.)

boywithball  We loved this boy playing with a ball – such a fun piece, full of character and youthful innocence!

kangaroo  We all know a home isn’t complete without a life-size kangaroo…what a fantastic statement piece!

cardholder  This little critter’s not for sale; he’s just doing his job as an unusual but handy card holder on a neighbouring stand!

ejectorseat  Ideal for the office, especially for boring meetings and when a quick escape is required: an ejection seat!

coatstand  This coat stand caught our eye as being both practical and effortlessly stylish!

PT0209_1_m  This fantastic Hong Kong Fly TWA poster by David Klein was bought by a lady who noticed it on our recent blog post as it’s where she and her husband went on honeymoon; another poster that has clearly found a good new home full of love this week! (Link to blog post: https://antikbarposters.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/david-klein-and-twa-travel-art-of-the-jet-age/)

ships  Sail away, sail away, sail away…these ships caught our eye before opening yesterday: what a collection!

hatstand  This elegant hat and coat stand sold pretty quickly but it still drew a lot of attention at our neighbour’s stand!

PS0191_1_m  A perfect new home has been found for this young girl – she’s going back to the ski slopes to a family holiday chalet in Austria!

children  Ahhh, this pair caught our eye as being so sweet and just a little bit retro chic…!

skis  A pair of wooden skis for the Winter Olympics display that would also look great in a modern chalet!

record  We love these pieces of creative music artwork: this Mick Jagger one gets our satisfaction…!

light  Thunderbolt and lightning…this colourful and dynamic wall light really is quite spectacular!

PA0219_1_m  One of a series of five Art Deco advertising posters (precision, economy, comfort, ease of use, elegance), this beautiful and rare set caught the eye and heart of its new owner, who just couldn’t resist their classic 1934 style!

unknown  This is one of a pair of very heavy and well made metal objects leaning against the wall that make a good (and decorative) talking point but nobody knows what they are…if you know for sure what they are, please let us know – we’re intrigued!

mirror  This very elaborate and unusual George I mirror shows incredible workmanship and looked great as part of the Jane Austin themed foyer display!

hand  Ideal for anyone needing a big helping hand…!

PA0543_1_m  “Here comes the sun…” our George Harrison poster found a new home with a Beatles fan proving that Beatlemania is still going strong!


We may not be an art fair… but…

Further to my last post about how good the Decorative Fair is for art – fine art, 20th Century prints & originals, and so forth, I came across these two images side by side, which I think helps to illustrate the width and breadth pretty efficiently! As seen at the last fair. 

 From Alston & Ashton is an Italian watercolour of a Mother and Child, set in an original, deep gilded frame. 18th century. Priced at £850.

rare vintage advertising poster ref decorative antiques fair From Antikbar is a rare Spanish, original vintage advertising poster with constructivist graphics – Fira Comercial de Mataro 1933. Designed by Mach/Gravat i impres per Imperas Minerva Mataro. Very good condition, folded as issued, repaired tears. Size 61x45cm. Priced at £750.
