THE NORTHERN ANTIQUES FAIR RETURNS TO
THE GARDEN ROOMS & CLOISTERS AT TENNANTS
IN NORTH YORKSHIRE
Thursday 29th September to Sunday 2nd October 2022

Ingrid Nilson, fair director of The Northern Antique Dealers Fair Limited, is delighted to announce that The Northern Antiques Fair will again take place in its new location at The Garden Rooms at Tennants, Harmby Road, Leyburn, North Yorkshire DL8 5SG from Thursday 29th September to Sunday 2nd October 2022. The fair’s charity partner is Two Ridings Community Foundation.

Make it an excuse for a rewarding day out, driving through the spectacular landscape of North Yorkshire to the market town of Leyburn in the heart of Wensleydale. Once at Tennants, there is ample parking for everyone and enhancing the visit to the antiques fair is the popular café, bar, bistro and gift shop. The bistro is renowned for its delicious Sunday lunch.

This prestigious antiques fair, which has been running since 1951, moved last year from Harrogate to its new venue and was deemed an overwhelming success with around 2,600 people visiting the four-day event. The Garden Rooms and Cloisters provide a very light, airy and modern setting complimented by the exhibitors taking a huge amount of trouble laying out and decorating their stands to the highest specifications.

Due to word getting around that last year’s fair was well received there has been an excellent take-up for the 2022 staging with new exhibitors from all parts of the country including Bags of Glamour, Catherine Hunt Oriental Antiques, Carolyn Stoddart-Scott, Fileman Antiques, Hickmet Fine Arts, Highland Antiques, J Dickinson Maps & Prints, Malcolm Eglin Antiques, Markov, Melody Antiques, Millington Adams, Studiotic, Sylvie Collett – Sewantiques and Watches of Lancashire

The fair will increase in size to over 40 exhibitors who will be bringing a
wide selection of disciplines including formal and country furniture, traditional and contemporary paintings and sculpture, early to modern glass, silver and jewellery, oriental rugs and carpets, ceramics and lighting, clocks and watches, Art Nouveau and Art Deco design objects, antique, collectable and luxury handbags, antique needlework and much more.  Prices range from £100 to five figure sums.

Special highlights around the fair include an Edwardian silver owl caster made by the Goldsmith’s Company of London in 1905 (£9,995) from Highland Antiques; a Spanish walnut writing table with a lovely rich colour and patination from Catalonia, c1660-1680 (£7,000) from Hispanic Antiques; a deep Kangxi charger from the early Kangxi-late Transitional period (£10,000) from Catherine Hunt Oriental Antiques; a rare small 18th century dresser from the Montgomery area of North Wales famed for their beautiful colour and patina (£3,750) from Melody Antiques; a very stylish Art Deco cold painted bronze dancer by Josef Lorenzl, c1930 (£4,995) from Solo Antiques; an oil on canvas of the Duke of Newcastle returning from the shoot, after Francis Wheatley RA (1747-1801) (£3,950) from Blackbrook Gallery and a 1978 Rolex Explorer 1016 (£14,000) from Watches of Lancashire.

Visitors looking for paintings with a local connection will enjoy a watercolour of Scarborough Castle by George Hamilton Constantine 1878-1967 from Graham Reed Fine Art (£2,100) and more art to suit every taste can be found around the fair from Burlington, Carnes Fine Art, Ellis Fine Art, Granta Fine Art of
Cambridge, Haynes Fine Art – London & Cotswolds, Walker Galleries
and J Dickinson Maps & Prints. For an anniversary present, look no further than Howards Jewellers who are showing a stunning pendant set with a black bolder opal suspended from a triangular cut diamond. More jewellery ideas from the Victorian age to the contemporary are well represented by Dansk Silver by Jane Burgett, Greenstein Antiques, Howell 1870, Markov, Shapiro & Co and T Robert. As well as jewellery, both J A Yarwood Antiques and The Antiques Bazaar have an excellent display of objets d’art.

Last year Oriental works of art proved popular and building on their success Drove House Antiques are bringing a group of Chinese late Ming underglaze blue dishes from the 1580-1620 period (£350-£600). There is also a wide selection from Catherine Hunt Oriental Antiques.  Lovely pieces of antique porcelain such as a pair of Vienna porcelain ice pails c1840 can be found with Carolyn Stoddart-Scott along with more choice from Graham Ruddock Antique Ceramics. A new discipline this year is Sew Antiques who specialize in sewing tools from the Georgian and Victorian era.
