Every object at the fair is vetted by a team of independent experts, so discover some of the treasures that visitors can expect to find.
Hommage a Terpsichore by Salvador Dali. Bronze. 1984.
In creating his version of the muse of dance, Terpsichore, Dalí uses a reflected image, setting the soft, carnal muse against the hardened, statuesque one. The lack of definition in both faces clearly underlines the purely symbolic significance of these figures. Signed ‘Dali’.

Italian Louis XIV gilt wood, marble topped centre table
This table follows the form of French Louis XIV designs from the end of the 17th century, with scrolled legs and a strong stretcher with lion paw feet, but the exuberance of the carving and the spring of the stretcher point to a Piedmontese origin. The original marble top is Spanish Brocatelle.
