News-Antique.com - Feb 03,2011 - The Luxury Antiques Weekend at Linden Hall returns again for the fourth year to the Macdonald Linden Hall Hotel, Longhorsley, Morpeth, Northumberland NE65 8XF from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 March 2011. This boutique-style fair offers the opportunity to source the very best antiques and fine art from 24 of the UK’s top dealers, all within a 30-minute drive from Newcastle.
Luxury Antiques Weekends concentrate on the upper end of the antiques market offering pieces from the quirky to the splendid and stylish. The fair is set in the elegant surroundings of the Macdonald Linden Hall Hotel which provides a stunning setting for the fair. This is the ideal place to find decorative items for the house as the exhibitors provide inspiration of how old and new can blend together as a background for modern living.
Many of the dealers are returning to renew friendships made over the last three years – Art of the Imagination from Salisbury comes with an exciting range of contemporary bronzes and original book illustrations and Garret & Hurst Sculpture Ltd show 19th century bronzes. Visitors will also find Georgian and Regency furniture from Church Street Antiques of Altrincham and country furniture from Melody Antiques of Cheshire; collectable calling card cases from Simply Antiques of Moreton-in-Marsh; rugs and carpets from M & N Oriental Rugs; fabulous antique and modern jewellery from Plaza, T Robert, Markov and Trivette; silver from Jack Shaw & Co of Ilkley and much, much more.
For someone looking for that special oak dresser Melody Antiques is bringing a 19th century Shropshire oak dresser and rack incorporating a grandfather clock. Made by W H Griffiths of Bishops Castle, c1840, this is a very unusual piece of furniture and it is thought there were probably fewer than fifty ever made, price £9,750.
Sculpture aficionados will find plenty of choice including a bronze entitled ‘Chien de Chasse’, signed by Antoine Louise Barye (1796-1875), price £7,475 from Garret & Hurst Sculpture. Amongst an interesting selection of Daum glass is an exquisite enamelled vase, c1900, price £2,450 from first time exhibitor Solo Antiques from Lancashire.
Jewellery is always popular and this year Plaza is bringing a 1950’s baguette and brilliant-cut diamond and platinum bracelet for £6,750. Other treasures include an 18 ct gold, platinum, amethyst and diamond enamelled Art Nouveau pendant brooch by Karl Kaltenbach and Sohne, c1905 for £2,850 from T Robert.
The Macdonald Linden Hall has generously offered an overnight stay with dinner, bed and breakfast for two as the prize in a draw, the winner of which will be announced at the end of the weekend.
