Offerings include a pair of William III period throne-like japanned and lacquered armchairs. Offered for £28,000 by Reindeer Antiques, they are included in the gallery’s show The House of Stuart – English Furniture from 1603-1714.
The inaugural edition of the showcase runs from June 19-30. Originally meant to open as a regular series of exhibitions along the historic west London street, it was moved online with the advent of coronavirus. Visitors are encouraged to contact individual dealers as some galleries may be open by appointment subject to social distancing.
Participating dealers include Patrick Sandberg Antiques, Butchoff and Howard Walwyn Fine Antique Clocks.
Several Asian art specialists such as Gregg Baker Asian Art and David Brower Antiques also feature. JAN Fine Art stages Wonders of the Orient featuring works such as a rare 5th century ‘Haniwa’ figure of a court official from Kofun Period Japan. The earthenware man wears a detachable hat and holds a scroll in his left hand. It is offered for a price in excess of £20,000.
