The Real Deal in Chelsea

By Linda Tancs

Now the oldest antiques fair in Britain, London’s Chelsea Antiques Fair wants visitors to be assured of high standards.  They secure outside experts to check the veracity of labels as well as the quality and authenticity of the pieces on show.   So you rest assured that those new 17th century entrants this year are the real deal.  Other selections include fine Victorian and 19th Century European oil paintings, British and Continental porcelain, Art Nouveau and Art Deco glass, antique books, prints and maps, and a smattering of the interesting and unusual.  If you can’t manage it all from 21 -25 March, then come back in September.  The event is at Old Town Hall on Kings Road.  Admission is only £5; that leaves room for spending.
