We decided to give ourselves a "day off" and visit the wonderful Masterpiece London fair which exhibits some of the top dealers from around the world. I was so excited walking up to the facade of the fair, which is actually just a pop-up tent, can you believe? It looks like a Georgian brick three story building.
The red carpet signifies the prestige of the event. I couldn't wait to get inside.
This was the type of antique I was expecting to see, Italian marble statues and the like. And I was not disappointed. There was also amazing furniture, art, vintage cars and plenty of jewellery stands (most of which with Cartier jewels from what I could see).
But my favourite exhibitor was Robert Young who specialises in folk art such as this amazing Noah's Ark complete with animal figures.
And I loved his French artists model displayed on an early table.
I know someone in particular who would love this piece, which was described as a "fantasy temple" on a furntiure dealer's stand.
And lastly this horse made it into my favourite objects, it is a life-sized Indian horse and was just beautiful. Masterpiece London was like a great museum the only difference being everything was for sale! My splurge? A cup of tea and a fudgy chocolate brownie...
