Something for everyone at town’s art and antiques fair

Have your say

Artefacts worth more than £2 million were on sale at an antiques and fine art fair in Harrogate yesterday.

The Pavilions of Harrogate Antiques & Fine Art Fair, organised by Somerset-based Cooper Antiques Fairs, is said to offer “something for everyone”.

Items regularly available include vintage jewellery, silver and ceramics, fine paintings, period furniture, copper and brass and bronze art. Organisers said paintings of Whitby belonging to art dealers Derek Newman Fine Art and Plumb’s Fine Art would be a major attraction, and that the “historic and contemporary images offer views old and new of this historic fishing port”.

Organiser Sue Ede said: “It went really well, we have eight new exhibitors with us, four of whom came down all the way from Scotland.

“There is absolutely everything here, it is not all old, there are some really good modern paintings as well.”

Other exhibitors included Studiotic, Vaughan’s Antiques, Balmain Antiques and Granta Fine Art. The fair continues this weekend from 11am to 5pm. For more details visit
