No matter what area of interest you pursue as a collector you will get to take your pick from a range which includes everything from antique Irish furniture and contemporary art to Waterford and Murano glass, coins and medals at the National Antiques, Art and Vintage fair at the South Court Hotel in Limerick on November 12-13.
In the beginning of the run up to Christmas Hibernian Antique Fairs come home to Limerick for what is one of the most popular events on their annual calendar. It is always a crowd puller. There will be at least five art galleries, ten antique furniture stalls, twelve dealers with jewellery, silver and objets d’art and rare book dealers from around the country. In addition to all this a range of dealers big and small will bring Oriental furniture and effects, costume jewellery, vintage fashion, coins, banknotes, medals, militaria, china, porcelain, brass, copper, clocks, watches, gramophones and car memorabilia.
Among those present will be George Stacpoole of Adare, the Irish Antique Dealers Association President and IADA members like Greene’s Galleries, Drogheda, Roger Grimes and Vanessa Parker of Co. Mayo and Weldons of Dublin. This assembly of antique business professionals from all over the island of Ireland, North and South offers collectors an unrivalled opportunity to see what dealers from Belfast to Ballina and Dublin to Dromcollogher have in stock.
