The Chelsea Antiques Fair should be an annual Fair in March, coinciding with the BADA Fair half a mile away.

But, in 2018 the Old Town Hall is closing for major refurbishments. We have hunted for an alternaive venue, to no avail. So the fair is having a sabatical for 2018 and will eturn in smart new surroundings in 2019.

Established in 1950, Chelsea used to be the highlight of the social season, alongside the Chelsea Flower Show. It has been the springboard for many major dealers who have gone on to famous Grosvenor House, Maastricht and more recently, Masterpiece Fairs - they are now leading lights in the antiques world, such as Robert Young, Wakelin & Linfield and Witney Antiques.

As the most economic of the major London Fairs, Chelsea draws to London many provincial dealers who could otherwise not afford the costs of a London event. Thus prices are always reasonable at Chelsea, and there is a chance to discover some unrecognised treasure!

Vetting is the prime factor in the maintenance of fine quality, authenticity and condition of all exhibits, which also have to bear fully descriptive price labels. Exhibitors too are vetted for their knowledge, selective stock and integrity.

The magnificent main Hall in the Old Town Hall adds grandieur, while its size contributes to the intimate and relaxed friendly atmosphere - where buyers and sellers of stylish furnishings and embellishments can enjoy discussing the fine objects on show - many of which will be going to admiring new owners in London, the provinces and indeed overseas.
