Few dealers will be busier than antiquities specialist Rupert Wace who will stand at The Grosvenor House Art and Antiques Fair, which opens on June 15, and at the same time mount a selling show in his Bond Street gallery as part of London Sculpture Week. Among the works he is taking to Grosvenor House is this striking 61/4in (16cm) high Egyptian polychrome cartonnage mummy mask of a young male from the Ptolemaic Period (4th to 1st century BC). It carries a price tag of around £35,000.
Looking ahead to a glorious Grosvenor
This is the month the trade in London really goes into overdrive, starting this week with the opening of The Summer Fair, Olympia on Thursday (June 8). Olympia is just one of four major London June fairs and these are complemented by an increasing number of dealer exhibitions around the capital.
