BADA fair edges into a new era

This year’s event was another step on the organisation’s road to modernisation

Times are tough in the traditional furniture market but sales at the recent BADA 2017 (March 15-21) bucked the trend.

During the fair, furniture and works of art specialist Thomas Coulborn & Sons sold a c.1810 Regency mahogany breakfront secretaire bookcase in the manner of Gillows for a fivefigure sum. At the stand of 16th and 17th century oak furniture dealer Beedham Antiques a 16th century stool sold for a price over £10,000, while a Charles II cabinet of drawers found a buyer at £5250.

The headline-grabber was a George I scarlet japanned bureau cabinet, which sold for a six-figure sum at the stand of Godson & Coles and made the news pages of ATG last week (No 2285).
