    Monday, September 9th, 2019

    The Irish Antique Dealers Fair at the RDS is always a big draw.  This year it is titled “Timeless” and runs on September 13, 14 and 15. It will offer a selection of items from antiquity to the contemporary. The range of furniture takes in everything from the highly fashionable mid 20th century styles to Art Deco and Art Nouveau pieces and classical pieces from the 1750’s to the 1890’s. Matthew Weldon remarked that people are going back to gold with Victorian pieces being re-purposed for the 21st century.  T-bar chains and pocket watch chains are enjoying a new lease of life as necklaces. Marie Curran Antiques have priced a 19th century Cork glass jug at 495, Niall Mullen has an Art Deco bronze of The Snake Charmer by Theo Somme at  4,850 and a pair of late 19th century French vitrines at Straffan Antiques are priced at 16,500.   Opening hours at Timeless are from 11 am to 8 pm on September 13 and 11 am to 6 pm on September 14 an 15.

    Lady Gaga’s iconic graffiti corset

    Lady Gaga’s graffiti corset is being drafted in to bring a younger audience to the Irish Antique Dealers Association fair at the RDS in Dublin from September 22-24.  On display will be items from the collections of David Bowie, Lady Gaga and Jackie Collins from Dublin based Pop Icons, who deal mostly in London, Los Angeles and New York.

    Laurence Carpenter of Pop Icons said:  “We will be displaying a collection of signed David Bowie lithographs – including his own charcoal drawing for an album press launch – alongside rare finds from Rihanna, Noel Gallagher and Lady Gaga. We will have a mixture of contemporary artists’ costumes such as the headpiece Beyonce wore in the video for Lemonade, Lady Gaga’s graffiti corset and signed guitars from some of the music world’s top icons such as Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page”.
