Masterpiece London 2018
Yesterday I visited Masterpiece Fair at London. Actually it was the best art and antiques fair I have attended in London so far, it was totally a masterpiece.
Fair is at the heart of London easy access from Sloane Square they take you to the fair by VIP shuttles. They have shuttle services from Sloane Square, Battersea Park, Victoria, St.James’s, Mayfair. But from Sloane Square they have services like every 10 to 15 minutes.
When you arrive you can not believe how marvellous the building and organisation totally. Bodyguards at the front door, red carpets in front of the door the experience itself is totally luxury and you start to feel it from the door.
When you enter the building you can see lots of security guards all in black and doing their job professionally. Guests were of course high profile customers all over the world.
The first impression I got was luxury and beautiful art pieces. Jewelleries were beautiful some of them were the popular ones from old times like Cartier, Tiffany and some of the companies like Chopard had stands serving champagne and special sale advisers serving for their high profile customers.
Chopard also was giving lectures and education programmes during fair times.
Prices were of course really expensive even most of the pieces did not have any price labels on, you need to ask for the price.
As I am really interested with Iznik pottery I have met with a dealer selling Iznik potteries. Although it is not easy to find Iznik potteries she had three pieces. Prices were really expensive from 22.000 to 55.000 pounds.
Other than antiques there was lots of art galleries and jewellery firms one of them was my favourite Fabio Salini, my goodness he knows this business as I searched his website I just found that he worked at Bulgari and Cartier in their creative department before opening his own store. As he is Italian it is normal that he has a good taste in style.
I really liked the art pieces and potteries and some of them has inspired from past like Wedgwood and Iznik pottery and created a new style.
One of the stands were selling Italian designer Piero Fornasetti ‘s art pieces and I really liked the style. It was totally his private collection and they have a website. He has inspired from most of the artists.
Generally there was lots of art companies, Davidgill was one of the gallery I enjoyed what they are selling. I liked the mirrors especially.
In terms of dining they did have a great choice from cafes to luxurious dining places. Le Caprice, Scott’s Seafood & Champagne Bar, The Ivy Chelsea Brasserie and The Mount Street Deli were couple of them. Also there was Perrier-Jouet Champagne Terrace to enjoy a drink. Although you might not buy anything even only visiting this fair is an experience, highly recommended !
