Returning for its third year in a row, The Mayfair Antiques & Fine Art Fair takes place at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square from Thursday 8 until Sunday 11 January 2015.

A boutique event, the fair attracts collectors, interior designers and buyers from all over the world, and has established an enviable and prestigious international reputation in the art industry. Organised by The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited and held in association with Mayfair property specialist Wetherell, it will showcase a magnificent array of treasures, from vintage watches, silver, and designer jewellery, to Art Deco furniture, Oriental antiques, and collectors’ books.

The majority of the 44 exhibitors are members of the British Antique Dealers’ Association and LAPADA, The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers. Newcomers this coming January include Kinghams Art Pottery Ltd bringing Martin Brothers and Wedgwood’s Fairyland.

Returning exhibitor WR Harvey & Co (Antiques) Ltd will be bringing an impressive collection of goods, including a collection of 18th century Chinese furniture from Shanxi Province, amongst which is a decorated lacquer book cabinet depicting a rural idyll, framed with butterflies, the symbol of marital bliss and happiness.

And hosted in one of London’s most stylish hotels, the Marriott Grosvenor Square, situated in the heart of Mayfair, guests will be treated to cocktails in the twenties’ style Luggage Room, while Gordon Ramsay’s two restaurants Maze and Maze Grill offer fine dining and New York grill inspired food upstairs from the fair.
