The LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair returns to the leafy surroundings of Berkeley Square, London, from Wednesday 24 – Sunday 28 September 2014.

More than 100 art and antiques dealers will offer furniture, jewellery, carpets, tapestries, antiquities, clocks, ceramics, silver and fine art. The sixth LAPADA Fair follows last year’s success where more than 19,000 visitors from around the world attended. Every piece on sale goes through vetting by a panel of over fifty specialists, ensuring quality and authenticity. Prices range from £500 up to £500,000 and beyond, offering buyers exceptional antiques and fine art and inviting first time collectors to develop exciting new interests.

Exhibitors include Peta Smyth, Adrian Alan, Hallidays, Joanna Booth and Windsor House Antiques. Witney Antiques will be showing a number of exceptionally good 17th century needleworks. They will also be hosting an exhibition at their gallery in Witney, Oxfordshire, featuring 38 samplers from private collections from 3 – 22 November 2014.
