London South West, UK - The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair at Battersea Park begins next Tuesday for six days with a specialist themed reception area. The foyer will display antique and vintage textile trimmings or Passementerie with upholstered furniture set amongst garden artefacts and ornament. Foster & Gane will exhibit some quirky 19th century high-backed scrolling garden chairs and a pair of painted American planter chairs and architectural ironwork and garden urns will be exhibited from Brownrigg, Serendipity and Victoria Harvey.

Nicholas Gifford Mead, a member of the Salvo Code, said he was very much looking forward to showing at the Decorative Fair next week, and will be taking a 20th century English York stone bird house, a restored 19th century Japanese model of a bronze crane standing on an upturned gourd carrying a leafy branch in its beak and a pair of 17th century Dutch brass and wrought iron andirons.

Nikki Page Antiques will exhibit a pair of stone fountain lions, a 19th Century French Oeil de Boeuf of grand scale removed from the front of a French chateau, her signature clam shells and a charming 20th century aluminium model of a crane. Nikki Page, Antiques By Design, Gary Wallis and The Antique French Chair & Sofa Co are all exhibiting at Salvo Fair this June in Henley.
