The piece, offered by Brian Ashbee & Wes Wotruba for £1750, features among an array of decorative antiques, including furniture and mirrors, paintings and pottery, at The Chester Decorative Antiques & Art Fair.
The event, from September 17-19 in the County Grandstand building at Chester Racecourse, was relaunched in 2019 by Sue Ede of Cooper Events, who took it over from Penman Antiques Fairs and steered it in a more decorative interior-focused direction.
“Today’s antiques buyers want a greater variety of objects and especially more 20th century and decorative pieces”, says Ede. “Classic antiques will, of course, still feature, together with traditional silver, ceramics, sculpture and collector’s items, but we are looking forward to specialists in classic vintage pieces, Art Deco, Arts & Crafts and Mid-Century Modern.”
Among the 40 exhibitors at this edition are Jo Bennett Original Pictures, Mike Melody Antiques, Roger de Ville Antiques, Rowles Fine Art and Solo Antiques.
