The BADA Antiques & Fine Art Fair

The BADA Antiques & Fine Art Fair is the showcase for members of the British Antique Dealers’ Association, representing the UK's leading specialists in the fine and decorative arts. The BADA Fair has an unrivalled reputation for quality and elegance and is located in one of London's most fashionable districts.

 

The art and antiques for sale ranges from 16th century works of art to contemporary furniture, all vetted to ensure quality and authenticity. Collectors and first-time buyers alike are attracted from around the world to the BADA Fair at The Duke of York Square, London SW3 from 18–24 March 2015.

 

 

What's on in the area

 

The BADA Fair is proud to call one of London’s most fashionable and romantic boroughs its home. With the globally famous shopping street King’s Road being joined recently by the luxury Duke of York Square shopping and cultural development, the area continues to be known for upmarket shopping, luxury hotels and world class culture. Its glamour continues to attract visitors from all over the world.

 

 

London has been one of the world’s most exciting and culturally stimulating cities for much of its 2000 year history. In the 18th Century, it was the great writer Samuel Johnson who uttered the (now perhaps cliqued) phrase that “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." And as we head into the 21st Century its vibrancy shows no signs of abating.

 

 

The Saatchi Gallery,  Cadogan Concert Hall and The Royal Court Theatre are all located within minutes of the BADA Fair.

Objects of Desire

Exhibitors reveal their knowledge and their love of special works of art

 

BADA Fair Exhibitors talk about their favourite pieces in this new feature on the BADA Fair website. Exhibitors are invited to give a special preview of an exceptional work of art or antique. They will share their knowledge and explain what makes a piece unique and special.

 

 

A late 19th century walking cane handle - from Sandra Cronan.

 

"At the time that this cane handle was made, a cane was far more than a walking aid, rather an important fashion accessory and indicator of wealth. As early as the 16th and 17th centuries jewelled walking stick handles were making an appearance, and, in a quest to prove one’s stature, craftsmen were revelling in the challenge to be innovative and often deliberately ostentatious. This very decorative cane handle would have represented the affluence and power of the user, but the language of the flowers featured on the cane make it a somewhat sentimental jewel, rather than an unabashed declaration of wealth."
