Antiques at the Holt

 

  Cherwell Suite, Holt Hotel

Regular visitors to Antiques@TheHolt will notice some significant changes when they visit the fair in November this year. Over the past six to eight months, the new owners of The Holt have spent a vast amount of money, and time, refurbishing the hotel. The main function rooms that we use have all been redecorated, with new carpets, wallpaper, lighting and soft furnishings. In addition, there have been some fundamental structural alterations as well.

All this work has given the hotel a fresh new look - brighter and much more contemporary. It has also necessitated a completely new layout to Antiques@TheHolt and the incorporation The Barton Room. There will now be two entrances, and a clear, easy-to-follow route that will take visitors past every pitch, and allow plenty of time to browse.

This page includes brief descriptions of typical items from just some of the dealers who will be attending - but not all! Some of the items featured here may well have been sold by the time the fair comes around, but they are typical of the type of stock our dealers offer. Click on the thumbnails to view enlargements.

If you are a dealer, and would like to know more about booking a table for future events, please Contact us, and we will send you the appropriate information.
