Bath Decorative Antiques Fair returns for Spring

Bath Decorative Antiques Fair will return to The Pavilion in the city from March 31 to April 3 for its traditional spring season in 2022 to celebrate antiques and 20th-century design for the home and garden. 

Garden antiques will be a focus when exhibitors converge on the Georgian City to deck their stands with expertly curated displays of decorative and country house antiques and garden ornament for both inside and outside the home.

Around 50 exhibitors will reveal stock saved for this fixture in the fairs calendar. 

Expect to see English, French and Nordic antiques and design – large painted cabinets, exquisite model chateaux, chateau furniture, imposing cast iron urns and benches for the garden and conservatory, huge farmhouse tables, rustic oak furniture, refined cosmopolitan furniture for the City dweller, library furniture for the essential home office, architectural elements, lighting, luxurious antique textiles and rugs from Asia and the Levant, folk art, mirrors, early glass and English and Continental pottery with a broad range of art from period portraits to modern and contemporary by renowned artists. 

Historically a Spring event, buyers have always looked for antiques for the garden and conservatory and exhibitors will offer a diverse selection of English, Italian and French antique tables and chairs and decorative embellishment. 

Bath has many long term exhibitors who have helped to form the flavour of this unique event including Simon Wharton Antiques with French provincial garden antiques and architectural salvage; Kore Purchase Antiques, offering decorative antiques for the home and garden; and Cunningham White’s with folk art and decorative antiques.

Elsewhere, No1 Lewes, will offer French provincial farm tables, decorative garden antiques and textiles; Paffron & Scott will show a mix of interesting decorative accessories and small furniture; and King George Antiques, with library furniture, town and country decorative and fine furniture, lighting and mirrors.

Making a debut in 2022 will be new dealers Ian Shaw Tribal Art; Colin Brand Antiques, decorative antiques and accessories; Louise Hall, English & Continental decorative antiques for the home and garden; Appleby Antiques, kitchenalia, Stag & Squire, decorative and country furniture and accessories, and Adrian Phippen Fine Art.
