Rose Antiques Fairs York Racecourse Antiques, Decorative and Fine Art Fair 8 – 9 June 2018

York Racecourse Antiques Decorative and Fine Art Fair – Entry £5

Rose Antiques Fairs Ltd was established to provide York with an annual high quality dealer led antiques fair.  Our first fair was held at The University of York in June 2015, and moved in 2016  to York Racecourse (Postcode YO23 1EX) to allow the fair to double in size. Since then the fair has grown to become the largest high quality stand fitted fair in Yorkshire, making it a must visit event for any antiques enthusiast.

The next fair will be held York Racecourse on Friday the 8th and Saturday 9th of June 2018 and is expected to occupy two floors with an extensive collection of antiques, fine art and decorative wares from virtually every genre of antiques from virtually every era from the  the 16th century through to the 1970s.

In 2018 the fair will also be home to a selling exhibition of Blue John jewellery by Treakcliff Cavern, Castleton, Derbyshire.

The Fair will open for business at 10am and close at 5pm on both the Friday and the Saturday. Entrance is £5 per person and there is ample free parking at the venue.

Introduction

The Yorkshire porcelain manufactury Rockingham was very much a leader in fashion and taste, however, the company had humble origins. The pottery was established by Joseph Flint in 1745 on land in Swinton forming part of the estate of Wentworth Woodhouse owned by the 1st Marquis of Rockingham. This initial Swinton pottery mostly produce tiles and bricks, but there is evidence that by 1753 the works included a pot house. The pottery passed through the hands of a number of owners, Edward and Elizabeth Butler, William Maplass, Malpass and Fenney, Bingley and Woods and eventually the Leeds Parnership, achieved via a 21 year lease taken out by John Green of the Leeds Pottery and Bingley and Co. This partnership became steadily acrimonious and collapsed at the end of the 21-year lease. John Brameld, 6th son of the Swinton blacksmith George Bremeld, had heavily invested in the Swinton pottery and faced significant losses by the potential closure of the Swinton works. This led him to gain the financial support of the pottery’s landlord Earl Fitzwilliam to buy out the Leeds partners.

This exhibition will focus on pieces of Rockingham porcelain from the Brameld period to exemplify the way in which the patronage of the 4th Earl Fitzwilliam, nephew to the 2nd Marquis of Rockingham, enabled the Bramelds to develop the works into an influential and fashionable porcelain manufactury.
