CADA Fair 2019

This year’s CADA Fair at Blenheim Palace is taking place earlier than in previous years. It will open its doors on Thursday, 21 February, and run through to Sunday, 24 February. As usual, we will exhibit at Stand 8 in the Colonnades. Among the highlights of this year’s exhibits are a Caucasian prayer rug on a white ground, a magnificent early Uzbek Suzani and a highly decorative late 16th century Flemish tapestry panel.

Our gallery will be closed for the duration of the fair. For a ticket admitting two, please contact the gallery on


We will be travelling in India, so the gallery will be closed from 24 January to 9 February. You can send us an e-mail on and we will respond as and when we can.

We will be back at HQ from Monday, 11 February. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.


We wish all our friends and customers a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year! May the best for all beings happen.
