The Autumn Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair
3-8 October 2017, Battersea Park, London
The Decorative Fair Sails in with Some Nautical Inspiration, Presenting The Admiral’s Eyrie as the Autumn Foyer Display.
The Foyer Display at the Autumn Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair, takes a nautical tack, presenting The Admiral’s Eyrie, a gentleman’s study-come-sitting room with a twist of sea-farer’s folly. Formal antique furniture will mix with modern accent pieces, whilst accessories will encompass marine instruments, pictures and works of art, and 20th century ‘boy’s toys’ such as WWII naval binoculars, lighthouse lamps and model boats.
The Autumn Decorative Fair is a high point of the Design Season for interior decorators. With more than 160 exhibitors taking part, all specialist dealers in antique and 20th century design from Britain and Europe, the selection of stock is unrivalled.
6th to 8th October 2017 , ExCel, London
Lorraine Hitching is a teddy bear historian who write books and magazine articles.
She is researching a book called Teddy Bears At War and was wondering whether any of our members or anyone else may have a story that could be added to this collection.
She is looking for stories such as teddy bears with a war connection, teddy bear mascots and indeed even teddy bears who were very special companions during the war years. Absolutely any stories or information would be greatly appreciated.
Please email email@example.com and we will pass on your email to Lorraine.
