Welcome Friends

February 23′

Starting as we mean to go on, 

With January already over we head into February after recently returning from our first outing at the Battersea Decorative Fair, a wedding abroad over new years and a new addition to the Jacksons Antique family in the form of rescued cat named Oreo.

We want to personally congratulate Josh and Frances Bovill on becoming husband and wife and wish them and their son Sidney all the happiness for their life ahead. We were fortunate enough to attend their wedding in New Zealand after being postponed multiple times due to Covid. We had a fantastic time and were very fortunate to be able to take some time off around the wedding to visit the Hobbiton set from Lord of the Rings, go whale watching, explore Auckland and the surrounding areas and, visit the largest geyser in the southern hemisphere (Pōhutu Geyser) while managing to grab a few hours to buy some new stock (to the delight of Kayleigh!).

The reset button has been pressed and we are now well on the way to planning our year ahead with a new focus on the market after the disappointing news that Olympia summer, NEC and Chelsea are not going ahead with no current dates for the future. As we were planning on attending all of these exhibitions we have had to rethink our strategy this year and focus on other areas. We don’t dwell on negative news at Jacksons Antique and with that in mind we managed to secure a last minute position at the highly acclaimed Battersea Decorative Fair.

First of all we would like to thank all of those clients who were able to attend and purchase from us with it being our first time we really appreciate the commitment to our business and thank you again for your repeat business. We were over the moon with the welcome we had at the fair and are currently looking to resign again for the next fair which will be in May (watch this space). As a first time stand holder I would highly recommend a visit to the fair for a different look at the antique and interiors business. I can honestly say if you wanted to purchase an entire room you would be able to at this fair, its diversity in objects from furniture to paintings is quite incredible and the variety of dealers is also just as impressive. At the the fair you will find items from two figures up to six figures and a mix of subjects from mid century modern to asian art.

Our first stand to test the water was found in the back left corner nestled between Mark West Glass and Thomas Glover Jewellery. As this was a decorative fair we got our hands dirty and painted the stand and laid a herringbone floor to go with the fairs aesthetics, we reduced the amount of cabinets and brought some select furniture. The fair was bustling from day one and had a huge footfall which we were pleased to see after Christmas, every day was full of members of the public, collectors, trade buyers, interior designers and the odd celebrity for the keen eyes to spot. We made several successful sales and overall were really pleased with our first exhibition.

We are now working hard to plan the next steps for this year and are looking to attend the Battersea Decorative Fair Spring Edition May 9th-14th 2023 and have some plans to exhibit at a few select fairs which we will release in due course so please keep an eye on the website for further information.

During Battersea Fair I was informed by Kayleigh that we are now the owners of a black and white Norwegian Forest cross Cat named Oreo. Before I left we had heard stories of a local neighbour who had moved out before christmas and deliberately left their cat behind. As an animal lover we both decided we would try to help the cat as it was -5 outside and the cat had been locked out with no food or shelter. During the week I was sent a photo with the little feline in question looking quite happy sleeping in our living room and we have now gained a new family member, I must admit he seems fairly happy with his new home!

New addition to the Jacksons Antique Family Oreo

For the next couple of months we will be looking to build our portfolio both online and via select exhibitions. We have a lot of plans this year to expand our business and keep focusing on what matters to our clients while supplying the very best in antiques, decorative and asian art objects.

New in stock we have several beautiful pieces added to our Asian art collection including a selection of ceramics and metalwork. In our Japanese collections you will find a stunning Satsuma vase by kinkozan with signed and impressed mark as found in our featuredsection at the top of the newsletter, we also have a bronze and mixed metals figural group. In our Chinese collection we have an exceptionally detailed Chinese soapstone carving with a heavily carved original fitted stand.

In our other collections we have a fabulous late 18th century fruitwood carved lion snuff box with hinged hatch, a German Jungenstil boxattributed to Erhard & Sohne with fabulous Art Nouveau brass inlay. An unusual oversize 1920’s German memento mori fluted glass and an 18th century Dutch Delft Drug jar. These amongst other pieces will be available below in the latest acquisitions and online throughout this week so keep checking back for updated at JacksonsAntique.co.uk
