The same initiative will be employed at his 33rd Harrogate Pavilions Winter Antique & Fine Art Fair where some 70 dealers will gather from January 30 to February 2.

Among the exhibiting heavyweights of the Bailey circuit are Windsor House Antiques of Mayfair, William Cook from Marlborough, Haynes Fine Art of Broadway and London’s Sheldon Shapiro. Newcomers include Hertfordshire Orientalists Qin, Middlesex pictures dealer William Lansbury, Calisti from East Yorkshire with sculpture and Pure Imagination from Tyne & Wear with Scandinavian furniture and decorative items.

Admission at Harrogate is £5.
