Sculptural Italian 1950’s Book Case and Sideboard by Vittorio Dassi
It is hard to believe that these highly popular Fairs celebrate their thirtieth birthday with this Autumn edition. One can understand why old and new customers are attracted to the more than one hundred and forty five exhibitors, drawn from the UK and Europe, as many display their pieces in room-like settings. The wide-ranging choice of items dates from the 17th century to the present so there is surely something for everyone?
