Amongst the dealers, there will be jewellery, glass, mirrors, pictures, rugs,and some furniture. Here’s something that should be for sale at Bibury, please ask for a viewing.As ever there’s great food available in the local pub and hotel, and places to wander and find ice creams!
A painted pine chest of drawers. The sizes of the height and width are the same, being 37″ or 94cm. The depth is 17 1/2″, or 44.5cm. Having just been photographed here after being waxed, the remedial scuffing of a paint finish has been left alone, after all someone may want to have them re-painted! Can deliver if required, call for viewing on 07977 936 882 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org thanks, Andy.
This year has started slowly on here, as we don’t have a fair in Bibury until 7th April. However there’s a small table just come in for sale, straight from the client, and I wanted to show you. A small Sutherland Table, perfect for afternoon tea or morning coffee, measuring 61cm high, and when open, 77cm by 60cm, closed it’s only 16cm wide, so sits neatly out of the way! Great colour, here it is!
Please let me know if you are interested as it’s quite a keen price! Regards, Andy.
Just a quick photograph of an oak longcase dial taken as I was adjusting the time, so an hours extra time as many people say, however as its sunny, I’m off to have a short walk in the sunshine, kicking leaves off the paths, just like schooldays!
It’s quite likely that I’ll be taking this clock to Bibury, so if you’re interested just nudge me and I’ll make sure it’s there. The dial signed Geo Jackson, Gainsbro. A nice 30 hour movement with good sounding bell!
Our last fair this year in Bibury is on November 4th, between 10am and 4pm. Maybe see you there?
I’m hoping that the weather today will be kind on us and the autumn tourists around Bibury. Many will know we have a visitors book, and it’s great when people sign it, really I’m interested in their town where they live or consider their home. Bibury really proves to be a destination for many from all over.
Here we have, taken part way through setting up, a rack, sometimes called a Delft Rack, Board Rack, or Delft Shelf, my favourite as said quickly it can be difficult.
Here on show for sale are a few items, duplicate reference books, tools, and of course the rack itself, recent arrival, but I’m sure I will make good use of this for years as I think it will be a benefit to display items on. Let me know if you like how it all looks, and why not pop along and enjoy the fair, we do have some excellent items, I’ll take a few extra photos to encourage visitors for our last fair of the year, on November 4th, obviously that’s after our fair on October 7th!
Well, on a day where a picture almost self destructs at a major auction house, here is one I am researching, and finding a frame for before I can offer it for sale, most likely at slightly less than a million pounds Stirling, but if someone offered that I could include a free shredder, paper or garden mulcher even!
I am struggling to read the inscription above the picture, but believe it says “Published 1822 (1922?) The Museum Galleries, 20 Museum Street, London. W0 Copyright”
Although signed in pencil, it is very faint, but I do like the embossed markings to one corner. These photographs will be enough for tonight, but when all said and done I actually like this, and feel as though I should know the place, but yet I don’t know where it is, yet!
Happy Researching for me!
Have a good weekend, and we will be on show in Bibury on Sunday 7th October!
Pop in and say hi and ask for a panini from a brand new kitchen accessory!
The title was a saying of a dealer many of us used to know, and it’s still around, when I remember! My post today is to remind, or inform about our next event, this Sunday on October 6th in Bibury Village Hall.
Refreshments served by Angela will include panini as the weather gets cooler, and hot sandwich and soup may just well be ideal!
Here is a photograph of a stand a couple of months ago, and who hopes to return to us in the spring. It shows an example of the variety of items we do get. Hope you like it.
I’m pleased to say that looking into the future, I can see the next fair at Bibury Village Hall is full again!
Pop along on 2nd September to see us, we open at 10am and close at 4pm. Refreshments are available. Stallholders items include Jewellery, Glassware, Brassware, Ceramics, Staffordshire Pottery, Metalware, and Furniture too!
Here is a Gypsy Table which will be there for sale, I’ve just photographed it today. Made in Coldstream, by Robert Bennet, called a Gypsy Table as they were often used by fortune tellers, and travelling folk, as the legs unscrew for easy transportation, and to save space. Now there is an idea!
Hello, and as the harvest season and the warm weather seems to conitinue, some people in the country will remember seeing Corncrake becoming exposed as their shelter becomes our food when the fields are harvested. Years ago, it was a long slow gentle affair with scythes and gangs of men, and sometimes women working their way across a field, but with large harvesters, well not so quiet!
This here is a Corncrake Call, and some people will recognise it as it’s a small rattle, can be held and worked in one hand too! Sadly I can’t say it works for Corncrakes as I can’t remember last time I saw one, must have been over 15 years ago, but it does attract Magpie and Jackdaw, as they are close to me and so nosey!
The whole item measuring under 4″.
Have a good weekend, so much on around here, but if a small countryside village is your thing, then pop along to Bibury Antiques Fair this Sunday!
