                             The 46th Annual Buxton Antiques Fair
               The Pavilion Gardens, St John's Road, Buxton, Derbyshire SK17 6BE
                                       13th – 16th May 2010

      A fabulous collection of antiques and works of art go on sale at The 46th Annual Buxton
      Antiques Fair at the Pavilion Gardens, from 13th – 16th May 2010.

      ‘We have something for everyone,’ says organiser Sue Ede, who successfully re-launched
      this annual event last year. ‘From fine Georgian furniture to historic oil paintings,
      Continental porcelain, contemporary art, sculpture, fine silver, English pottery, stylish Art
      Nouveau metalwork, chic 1940s jewellery and all kinds of fascinating objets d’art.’

      Now in its 46th year, The Buxton Antiques Fair is one of the most prestigious events of the
      antiques calendar. ‘The fair has always been one of the highlights of the spring season for the
      whole of the UK art and antiques market,’ explains Sue. ‘Visitors come from across the
      north and west of England to view and buy. And this year I am delighted to be bringing a
      number of new exhibitors to add an extra dimension to the range of art and antiques for sale’.

      Sixty specialist dealers occupy room-set style stands within the charming setting of The
      Pavilion Gardens building, with its adjacent restaurant and coffee bar.

      Everything Vetted
      All exhibits on sale at the fair are vetted for quality and authenticity by a committee of
      experts. Exhibits are offered in a condition ready for people's homes and private collections.
      'This ensures that buyers can make their purchases with confidence and is the mark of a good
      quality fair,' explains Sue, who appreciates that anyone who invests in fine quality antiques
      needs that kind of reassurance.

      Highlights
      There will be many rare and special exhibits on sale. Neptune Fine Art from Derbyshire
      return with a selection of original oils, watercolours and drawings by two of the most famous
      artists of the past 100 years, L.S.Lowry and Mary Fedden, with prices ranging from around
      £10,000 to £300,000.
From Sussex, Mulberry House Antiques will be showing a range of fine quality 18th and 19th
century English and Continental furniture, so too Melody Antiques from Chester. Early
English pottery will be on offer from Roger de Ville from Staffordshire; Persian and Oriental
carpets and rugs from M.& N.Rugs from Manchester; and British and Continental porcelain
by Meissen and other major factories, from specialist dealer John Newton from East
Yorkshire. Among the jewellery specialists, Shapiro & Co. from London promise a glittering
display of Russian and French pieces including pieces by Faberge.

              The 46th Annual Buxton Antiques Fair, 13-16 May 2010.
