ROMAN GLASS ON ITS WAY TO CLASSIC ANTIQUE FAIR

Surrey based antique glass specialist, Mark West, has some real surprises up his sleeve for the Classic Antique Fairs event at the NEC Birmingham in July including two pieces of Roman glass.

Mark, who used to have a shop in Wimbledon and has been dealing in antiques for 54 years, is also taking what he says is a ‘very good collection’ of 18th century English glass.


One of the two Roman pieces is a ten-inch-high flask that is in perfect condition with a price tag of £4600. Among other unusual items destined for his stand at the NEC are an Asprey gentleman’s dressing case and a dessert pyramid of glass dated around 1750 worth £1600.

 

Mark exhibited at Classic Antique Fairs’ (CAF) inaugural event at the NEC last year and said it looked wonderful and attracted some keen buyers. He is looking forward to the summer fair running from July 12th-14th.


Mark, who believes a nice glass makes a nice drink, began to specialise when he realised he could sell people desirable antique glassware more cheaply than they could buy the modern equivalents.



He will be joined by specialists in a range of fields from ceramics and paintings to jewellery and furniture who are returning to the fair because they value the chance to meet buyers face to face.

 

We are offering, for a limited time only, complimentary tickets to the three day Fair, and have also arranged for customers to take advantage of a special reduced parking rate of £8 for Classic Antique Fairs events at the NEC by pre-booking on the NEC website - a reduction from £18.95 on the day.

 

Doors are open to the public from 10am-5pm on Friday July 12th and Saturday July 13th and from 10am – 4pm on Sunday July 14th.
