Following the success of the inaugural Melbourne Antiques and Vintage Fair, the promoters have announced that there will be a Fair in 2016.
The second annual event is planned for July 2016.
Watch this space for details!
It’s all go at Roundabout Antiques, where father-and-son team Michael Neilsen and Robert Neilsen have assembled an impressive collection of exquisite ceramics to exhibit at the inaugural Melbourne Antiques and Vintage Fair. The Neilsens specialise in English ceramics and are well known for their expertise in Royal Doulton and Moorcroft issues.
Among their special items that will be available at St Kilda if not sold beforehand are some fully signed William Moorcroft pieces, like this quintessentially Moorcroft Banded Pomegranate bulbous vase, a Hazeldene bowl in the Pompeii Shape 333 and a stunning Flambé Leaves and Berries bulbous vase.
They will also be bringing some exceptionally rare figurines including pieces by Leslie Harradine, and an impressive array of Royal Doulton pottery, including this Large and imposing Doulton Lambeth stoneware bulbous vase with applied baguette beads and foliage by George Tinworth.
You are cordially invited to drop by Stand 25 for a closer view of these and many other fine items.
We are thrilled to have Bill and Barbara Newman of Pastimes Antiques exhibiting with us at the Melbourne Antiques and Vintage Fair. Barbara and Bill are respected and longstanding dealers on the Sydney scene, with a reputation for ‘knowing their stuff’ (this is a rave in the antiques world), and with a recognised expertise in glass paperweights.
Among the beautiful items that Pastimes will have for sale at Melbourne if not sold before will be a lovely 19th Century silver-plated tea kettle,
a Loetz iridescent glass vase, a marvellous Art Deco era Japanese cloisonné vase, and a pair of wine bottles with decorations by Salvador Dali, as well as an astounding display of glass paperweights.
