Welcome to Philip Carrol Antiques
May I wish you a warm welcome to my website, which represents the business I run from the beautiful, Dales village of Gargrave, North Yorkshire
My stock of English and Continental ceramics usually include fine porcelains, with representative pieces from the various Worcester factories, Derby, Chelsea, Liverpool, Meissen, Sevres amongst other producers. English and Continental pottery figures and related products of the 17th,18th, & 19th Centuries are always available. We also carry stock of Oriental porcelain and works of art.
I am a regular exhibitor at some of the major British antique fairs including the BADA Fair, Olympia, Antiques For Everyone at the NEC, and the Harrogate Antiques Fair. You will also find me exhibiting at the busy Showground Fairs at Newark and Harrogate, as well as Alexandra Palace in London.
I do hope that you have had an enjoyable Summer, sadly it is becoming increasingly noticeable that the days are becoming shorter. Bunny's evening walk is now more likely to be accompanied by darkness ! Even so, the good news is that this all means that we are about to embark upon a a new season of Antiques Fairs, with my pre season beginning with a one day Fair at the Alexandra Palace in London, on Sunday 4th September. At the end of September, it is back to the 'Home turf' of the Harrogate Antiques and Fine Art Fair, Conference Centre, Harrogate, which begins on the 28th September. This Fair is held in conjunction with the B.A.D.A., and has the reputation for being the highest quality antiques Fair outside of London.
November and December means even shorter days, but the consolation is that they include two of our most important events of the year. The month begins with the Winter Art and Antiques Fair at Olympia, London, an event which not only includes a large number of exhibitors from the Summer Olympia Fair, but also a number from the other premier Summer antiques Fairs - Art Antiques London, and Masterpiece. Therefore, you can be assured of the quality of items on display, and the knowledge of the exhibitors, with regard to the authenticity of the product available. It s then a mad scramble to find fresh stock for the final major Antiques event if 2016, the Winter Antiques for Everyone Fair at the NEC Birmingham. This is a truly great event. It may not have the Pomp and Circumstance of the London events, but if you want proof of its success, take a look art the queue outside in the foyer before 11am on the opening Thursday. The size of it is without equal at any Fair in the UK, and make no mistake, these people have come to buy. The Summer edition was frantically busy from the moment that the doors opened. I think that it is safe to say that, as a dealer, if you cannot make AFE pay, you have to seriously question your business model.
Hopefully, you will be able to make it to one of these events; if you require complimentary tickets, please contact me, or download one of the etickets available below. If you cannot make it. The Summer has been busier than usual, and the Autumn will be even busier, with plenty of new, interesting and exciting stock arriving. So, please keep an eye on my website, and do not be afraid to contact me about any item that may be of interest to you. I WILL be able to help you with the price !
