The Antiques and Fine Art Fair at The Mere

Does your house need a make-over, or have you been meaning to update the sofa in the lounge? Maybe you’ve been talking about buying a new painting, or the garden has been a little neglected over the winter.

Now is the moment to change all that. Go along to The Antiques & Fine Art Fair at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 February for a bit of inspiration, where you will find everything under one roof.

Why not add a little local history to your home with a low oak dresser which was made in Cheshire in the early 19th century from Melody Antiques? While you are on their stand you might recognise Mike Melody from your TV screen. A Cheshire man, he was a regular face on TV’s ‘Dickinson’s Real Deal’ and ‘Secret Dealers.’
More local faces are Nick Stanley and Alex Smalley from Church Street Antiques in Altrincham. They have a gorgeous Regency mahogany settee, recently upholstered, on their stand amongst other pieces of furniture, lighting and decorative objects. For more choice, Freshfords Fine Antiques from Bath are bringing a George II Hepplewhite period settee along with clocks, mirrors and lighting.

A talking point will be Hope Morning, 27.04.07 by John Hoyland, widely recognised as one of the greatest artists of the Modern British movement from Holland Murray Fine Art. If it’s colour you are after, the contemporary paintings on Lucy B Campbell’s stand are show stopping, for instance, Niger by Manuel López Herrera.

Space in the garden could be filled by contemporary blacksmith artist Jenny Pickford, one of the three QEST scholars demonstrating their skills. The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST), is the charitable arm of the Royal Warrant Holders Association.

A fair would not be complete without a good selection of jewellers showing their latest pieces. Designer names such as Buccellati, Theo Fennell, Boucheron and Mauboussin are to be found on Plaza’s stand. There will be a gorgeous antique bee brooch from T Robert and for lady golfers at The Mere, there will be an unusual Edwardian golfing brooch from Anderson Jones Ltd, plus lots of surprises to be found with Shapiro & Co.
