Antique Fair of the Month

Antiques in Tents

14th to the 15th October at Burton Court, Herefordshire

October fair of the month

Held at Burton Court in the Herefordshire countryside near Leominster, the twice-yearly Antiques in Tents is a must-visit for fair lovers. It ticks all the boxes for us in terms of what such an event can offer – a beautiful country house in an idyllic setting, a friendly medley of dealers and buyers who use this gathering as an opportunity for a good catchup, homemade food and, of course, a brilliant offering of collectables, curiosities, textiles, decorative statement pieces and brown furniture set out in the marquees and in rooms of the main house.

Antiques Auction of the Month

Items from Exbury House at the Furniture, Works of Art & Clocks Sale

5th October at Woolley & Wallis

October auction of the month

This autumn, a flavour of ‘Le Goût Rothschild’ will be served up at Woolley & Wallis in Salisbury when a collection of furnishings from the Rothschild seat, Exbury House in Hampshire, comes up for sale. The Rothschilds – a fabulously wealthy European banking family – had homes across France and Britain, and in 1919 Lionel Nathan de Rothschild bought 18th-century Exbury House, which is now better known for its world-class collection of rhododendrons and azaleas.

The 220 lots being auctioned off, with estimates from £100–£60,000, include fine furniture, works of art, lighting, carpets and silver, many of them family heirlooms once belonging to the great art collector Alfred de Rothschild. Specialist Mark Yuan-Richards says, ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire historic pieces with impeccable provenance.

Highlights include a micro-mosaic centre table attributed to the Roman mosaicist, Francesco Belloni, who went on to work for Napoleon; the top is finely inlaid with a laurel wreath and bands of scrolling leaves and flowers and sits on a base carved from giallo antico marble.’
