This fair is now in its second year and as Ingrid Nilson, Director of The Antiques Fair Limited, explains, “Visitors travelled from various parts of the world and from around the UK to attend our first London fair. We were proud when they remarked that is was a totally unique event, full of interesting works, informal with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We aim to build on this reputation and feel we have a great mix of dealers, who can help us achieve an even better offering for visitors in January.”
