Art Antiques London

Art Antiques London, a new art and antiques fair, took place from June 10 through June 16. The fair took place in Kensington Gardens and incorporated the 29th year of the International Ceramics Fair & Seminar.

The fair brought in International dealers, curators and collectors. Pieces from the 18th century to the present were at the fair and were all “examined and vetted for quality and authenticity,” according to the Arts Antiques London website. Most exhibitors were from the UK, but others were from France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

Art Antiques London took place in a custom-built pavilion in Kensington Gardens, near Royal Albert Hall and close to the site of the Great Exhibition of 1851. In addition to the fair, Art Antiques London included a collectors’ dinner and various lectures. The fair had its own restaurant open for reservations called “1851,” catered by the Admirable Crichton.
