Winter 2019 Decorative Antiques Fair & Belleek Pottery
The Decorative Antiques Fair which is one of my favourite one has opened its doors for winter this time and you can visit the fair till Sunday 27th of January.
This fair is different than the other art & antiques fairs as this fair’s main focus is about decoration. So if you are the one who loves antique decoration, this fair is the right place for you.
This fair is family owned and they are helding this event three times a year; Winter Fair in January, Spring Fair in April and Autumn Fair at late September.
This event is held at Battersea Park. You can either use public transport or drive your car, check the link below for further information as there is also shuttle services every 15 minutes from Sloane Square as well,
Here are my top picks of this event,
White and blueware potteries are what Sue Norman is specialized on and I loved these plant pots. Unique and so decorative and you can either use inside or outside of your house.
These plant pots are designed by Doulton Lambeth art pottery by 1880s and the details are beautiful. This company was established by John Doulton in 1815. His son Henry Doulton took over this company at 1887 and hired talented artists to decorate an extensive art pottery. Their talents were recognized by royal collectors as well.

Merelyn Ashton-Alston & Ashton
This Somerset based antiques company is selling from paintings to decorative stuff. I liked the photograph of David Bowie which is a limited edition and signed by himself.

This picture is taken during publicity shots for his 1974 album ‘Diamond Dogs’ in London. This is the 21st edition of 50, price is £18.000.
William Cook Antiques
What I have loved in this company’s stock is Brazilian Agate Lamp. Actually these stones are quite unique and I loved the patterns and the colour of these stones and they look beautiful with the light. Price is £3150 per pair.
Peter & Lucy Sohier
This Belgium based company is coming to London only for fairs and I think it is really worth to look at their stands every time. This time i loved the German candle holders from 1960s, these shackable candle holders are in the tree composition and you can design of your own, price is £2200 per pair.
Les Trois Garcons
This London based company is combining both modern and antiques furniture. I loved their Dutch cabinet from 18th century, other than repainting everything is original and good condition, price is £6800.
I loved the details and craftsmanship,
Long Tran Antiques
This company is porcelain specialist and it is possible to find potteries from Meissen to Irish brand Belleek.
I loved this Belleek porcelain basket,
To be honest I discovered Beleek porcelain in this fair and I made a quick research about this brand like to share the story of this brand as well;
