Today starts the beginning of a social media campaign #707070 - 70 photographs in 70 days to celebrate 70 years of Apter Fredericks at 265-267 Fulham Road, Chelsea, London. Antique dealers extraordinaire, we purvey the finest eighteenth century English furniture available on the market today.  Here is an example, which were sold by us at Masterpiece 2014. This SPECTACULAR pair of pagoda topped cabinets were made by King George III's cabinet makers Vile & Cobb in about 1760. Constructed in rare woods - padouk, which was originally bright purple, and manchineel, a light yellow colour, these remarkable works of art kick the term "brown furniture" into touch...! Come and join us on Instagram to see the full #707070 campaign!

We're excited to be heading to New York for the Winter Antiques Show which opens late this month and runs from 21st to 31st January. We will be showcasing a number of important antiques, including several from a private American collection, which haven't been available on the market for years. For example,  have a look at this divisional mirror which is versatile and would work well in a contemporary interior.  @winterantiquesshow  #winterantiquesshow   #winterantiques   #Linnell   #mirror   #antique   #antiquemirror   #antiques   #newyork

Our iconic winter window display is here....
This year we've been inspired by #Narnia  and C. S. Lewis' literary great The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, with the #wardrobe  the most important bit, obviously :-) We hope you like it.

In our latest blog, we look at how the East affected eighteenth century design, and we tip our hat to ‪#‎AsianArtWeek‬ in London. We also question whether, in this digital age of instant access to information, we have lost The Thrill of the Exotic? https://apter-fredericks.com/2015/11/03/have-we-lost-the-thrill-of-the-exotic/

Apparently yesterday was #NationalCatDay  Here is a detail from our #Linnell   #SideTable  Quite incredible deep #carving  with wonderful expression. Also, note how the lion is looking down and left, not straight ahead, and we LOVE his cheeky grin.

Apparently Apter Fredericks feature on Channel 5's series "How The Other Half Lives" which starts tonight at 9pm. If we haven't ended up on the cutting room floor then you might see Alice discussing the amazing drinking table which we featured and sold at Masterpiece in June.
