Among the 40-plus dealers at this traditional fair will be London couple Mark and Sandra Diamond who will ask £1500 for this unusual Worcester owl inkstand, right, the cream-glazed body with black detail and a date code for 1863.

The fair, with a general 1900 dateline but 1950 for lighting, jewellery and textiles, has a history of sound business with buyers who find this part of the country not too overcrowded with fairs.

Admission is £3.50.
