‘Derby’ is a world-renowned porcelain that was first manufactured in the mid-eighteenth century and which continues in production to the present day. The Society is also preparing a full colour catalogue of the exhibits that will provide in-depth information of all the pieces on display, making a useful reference work for the future.

Our intention to show many lesser-known, unrecorded and newly discovered pieces is sure to generate lots of interest amongst collectors and enthusiasts. The fair is well-known among ceramics collectors and always very busy. I’m really looking forward to it!”
Commenting on the fair, organiser Mary Claire said: “After a very successful summer fair in July and a great Feature Exhibition, we’re delighted to be welcoming the Derby Porcelain Society to the winter fair with such a major display of rare and important pieces from private collections. Their presence emphasises how AFE is such an important event for ceramics collectors. We have many specialists exhibiting and plenty of Derby pieces on sale. Of course, our November fair will provide huge inspiration for collectors in so many areas, and is also a great opportunity for Christmas present buying.” 

Antiques for Everyone will feature fabulous antiques and works of art for sale belonging to more than 200 specialist dealers.
