The rescheduled The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair is set to open next month in Petworth House, West Sussex, from June 18 to 20.
One of the highlights of the event is a 19th-century Qing dynasty Chinese export Dehua porcelain blanc-de-Chine figure seated on a Buddhist lion, probably Manjusri bodhisattva of wisdom, which was once owned by HRH The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon. The piece is among the 15th to 19th century Chinese porcelain objects for sale from international dealer Santos London, exhibiting for the first time at the fair.
Other key art dealers who will be represented include Jeroen Markies Art Deco, Jenna Burlingham Fine Art, Kaye Mitchie Fine Art, and Jena Burlingham Fine Art.
The prestigious event also welcome a rich array of dealers across ceramics, glass, clocks and furniture, ranging from Julian Ede Antiques, Fileman Antiques and Morgan Stickland Decorative Arts, to Hickmet Fine Arts, Walton House Antiques and BBC Antiques Roadshow horological expert Richard Price.
Fair organiser, Ingrid Nilson, of The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited, said, “Dealers are so keen to get back to work and meet their clients and other visitors that I am pleased to say that the fair is at full capacity with some 60 experts congregating in our spacious and airy marquee.“
