The Decorative Fair Is Not Just About Antique Furniture, Tetxiles and Glorious and Interesting Decorative Items…
Though we have those of course… and more at the Battersea Park, Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair
But to change the pace and to continue in our tradition of being new, interesting and diverse, we have new exhibitors and new antique categories too. This coming May (3rd may to 8th May 2011) we have new exhibitor M.Goldstein, one of the new breed of vintage, antiques, art and ephemera shops that are becoming more vogue-ish with the design cognoscenti.
M.Goldstein is a shop near London’s famous Columbia Road Market. Run by Nathaniel Lee Jones, who has worked in the antiques industry for some time, and stylist and DJ Pippa Brooks, they describe their business as “a shop/showroom/installation/idea/work-in-progress. It can be any one or all of the above at any given time. The interior is constantly changing and evolving so that from week to week the look and stock on offer can be totally different.” It all sounds good (and the press like them) and their website is worth a look!
Some of the very unusual and eye-catching decorative works of art they will be bringing to the Fair include a 19th Century automaton, Victorian garden furniture, ‘magic’ mirrors and an early 20th Century British constructivist painted banner. They will also have a pair of rare WW2 Avro Anson seats alongside a scarce French miniature bourgeois interior diorama. Definitely what we would call an eclectic mix!
Pictured here are  the miniature French ‘borgeois’ interior diorama (left) and  a fascinating scene with Napoleonic Soldiers on original ‘grandstand’, c. 1900 (right). The Grandstand measures 56 cm wide x 45 cm deep x 28 cm height. Nine Figures (with hand-painted wax faces, with handmade costumes, weapons and regalia) measure 21 cm in height each.
