This weeks sees the return of one of my favourite events. The Olympia Art and Antiques Fair, brings together some of the worlds finest antiques dealers, with some truly show-stopping items for sale. Olympia pays hosts to the event for the second time this year with the event running from 31st October until 6th November.
I popped along to the preview evening to take a look around and feast my eyes on what can only be described as treasure. If like me you love history and antiques, you’ll appreciate the museum quality of some of the pieces on display. Will items prices from the hundreds to tens of thousands there really is a broad mix of items on offer. Items range in date from the early 20th century all the way back to ancient times.
Here are a few pictures of some of my favourite pieces from this years fair.
A stunning selection of art nouveaux tiles from Richard Hoppe
An art deco bronze sculpture by Josef Lorenzl circa 1930 from Jeroen Markies
A pair of embroidered stools from Peter Bunting
Some beautiful glassware from my favourite stall Solo Antiques
Japanese fruit sculpture from Marina Oriental Art
One of a pair of cherubs, that I spotted at the last fair and absolutely loved.
If you’re looking to make a big purchase, or if you’d just like to look around and appreciate all the beautiful things, I’d definitely recommend a visit to the fair.
