It is hard to believe that this is the seventh edition of the fair founded by Anna and Brian Haughton in 2010.  There are some sixty exhibitors drawn from Belgium, France, Israel, The Netherlands, the UK, of course, and the USA.

There is a wide array of objects to delight the eye and one can quite easily understand why serious collectors, museums and interior decorators return year after year.  One well-loved feature of this fair is the lecture series which includes ‘Face to Face: Dame Rosalind Savill in conversation with Richard, 10th Duke of Buccleuch and 12th Duke of Queensberry’ on 27th June.

Many will agree with what Anna Somers Cocks said in The Art Newspaper (20 June 2013) “like the Old Master drawings fair in Paris, but unlike most other fairs today,… is an encounter between people who really want to talk art and handle objects knowledgeably.”

A batik sarung from the studio of Catherina Van Oosterom in Banyumas, Java. During the mid 19th century a new type of batik was invented by a small group of Indo-European women, working traditionally with natural dyes and molten wax applied to cotton by means of a pen (canting). This genre is known as the Indische school and combines both Asian and Western design elements.  Jonathan Hope
