Spring Battersea Park Antiques Fair & French Blue Opaline Glass
Last week between 17-22nd of April 2018 there was The Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair at Battersea Park London. I love this fair cause you can find really good dealers and pieces here, there are four fairs each year at spring, summer, autumn and winter.
I always go around the stands and choose what I like and talk with the dealers then I start to take pictures about the pieces I like.
One of the dealers I always like to visit is Lee Wright. This year I like their 1960s wall light sold as a pair, price is £2400.
Table above is also from Lee Wright which is Spanish from 1960s price is £1450.
I loved this lamp it was so nice,
Another wall light is from Florence, Italy
This floral wall light sold as a pair and price is £1250.
These glass candlesticks sold as a pair as well, French 1950s, £795.
I loved this 1950s rope chandelier from Hossack & Gray Antiques, also arms can be extended, ideal for summerhouses. Price is £3200.
Another lamp I really liked is from Fiona McDonald, 1950s Italian Chandalier, price is £1890. Ideal for long ceilings or stairs.
Love this coffee table from 1950s from Foster & Gane, generally good condition with mirror on it.
Also this Portugal mirror is from Foster & Gane, price was £2800.
I loved this table lamp as well, it is from Omnipod.
Also seems like Wedgwood Blue Jasperware, which is my favourite, starts to be on trend again, so you might collect them if you like them as I like.
And final one is Alexia Amato Antiques, I loved what she was having on her stand.
There were really beautiful pieces in her stand which was one of the most crowded stand on the fair. She is specialised in antique glass and she has worked for Bonhams for 4 years, she is trustable.
I strongly recommend Battersea Park fair and try to visit first day if you like to buy the golden pieces and try to visit last day if you want to buy them cheaper.
FRENCH BLUE OPALINE GLASS
Opaline is a form of opaque and coloured glass. In France opaline means multiple types of glass and when you see a opaline sign on a glass it does not mean it is an antiques, it means it is a coloured glass.
Opaline glass is made in France from 1800 to 1890s. Most of the opaline glass is not branded or signed.
Vases, bowls, cups, perfume bottles and other variations have been produced with opaline glass. Many pieces are decorated with gilding.
At Battersea Park Fair at Alexia Amato Antiques stand I have found two beautiful French Opaline Glass Vases, the pair price is £1980. It is 19th century production and very good condition.
Looking forward to visit Alexia Amato Antiques in her store as well.
