Winter 2017

This festive period we are delighted to offer an assortment of antique items which we hope will make ideal gifts. Mostly small and made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, pottery, glass and enamel, they have a luxurious or quirky appeal. Take a look here.

Autumn 2017

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate Juno's 10th Anniversary over the Summer; it really was a pleasure to welcome you all, old friends and new. There are still so many fine items to be added to the website after the exhibition (like this Vauxhall coffee cup, c.1756-58), so please do keep checking for updates, and do not hesitate to contact us if you see anything of interest.

Summer 2017

What does the Summer have in store for Juno Antiques?

A hugely popular annual event with collectors, curators and dealers since 2001, this summer Eight Days in June is to be renamed and relaunched as Kensington - The Heart of Ceramics, and for the first time Juno Antiques will be joining antique ceramics specialists Simon Spero, Roderick Jellicoe and Garry Atkins.

To celebrate ten years of Juno, we will be holding a special selling exhibition: Moments of Pleasure. All items are for sale now and an electronic version of the catalogue can be viewed here. Please be aware that this is a large file and may take several minutes to download.

Opening at 2 pm on Tuesday 27 June, the event runs until 5 pm on Saturday 1 July.

We very much look forward to seeing you at the E&H Manners Gallery, 66c Kensington Church Street, London W8 4BY.

This summer we look forward to welcoming you to our first selling exhibition, Of Pagods and Monsters, which will be held at The London Ceramic Fair on 8 June. The exhibition brings together over sixty, mainly English 18th-century ceramic pieces, inspired by oriental porcelain, and groups them according to theme and style. Popular in the 18th century, particularly when describing chinoiserie elements in European Decorative Arts, 'pagod' is a term used to describe either pagodas or the gods worshipped within them. As one might expect, European artists often had difficulty in understanding the unusual mythologies and cultures of a distant continent, and much could be lost in translation. We hope that this selling exhibition will tempt collectors of all tastes and budgets to embark on their own journey into a land of pagods and monsters.

Homes & Antiques magazine recently interviewed us for a piece on blue and white porcelain which featured in the June 2013 issue

As the festive season approaches, we look forward to the first fair of the New Year - The London Ceramic Fair - at Kensington Town Hall, London W8. Please join us between 11.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. for a wide range of antique pottery and porcelain; there is always something to suit individual tastes and budgets!

The London Ceramic Fair, Saturday 11 June, 2011

It was wonderful to see so many of you at The London Ceramic Fair in June and, according to the organisers, the event enjoyed its largest attendance ever. It really was a great day for dealers and collectors alike, and we were pleased to sell items right across the board. We sold some beautiful polychrome Vauxhall pieces from the collection of Bernard Watney, as well as an exceptionally rare William Reid plate. Bow was also popular, and the search is already on to find more desirable items for the next fair in January 2012.

Thank you to everyone who visited the hugely successful thirteenth annual London Ceramic Fair.

Thank you for joining us at the Worcester Porcelain Museum for the third outing of this popular fair. As always, the collector and enthusiast was offered a unique opportunity to browse, research and purchase fine ceramics and glass within a museum setting. Henry Sandon MBE (former Director of the porcelain museum at Worcester, and a BBC Antiques Roadshow favourite) was once again delighted to answer your ceramic queries!

The London Ceramics Fair at Kensington Town Hall provided a wonderfully busy start to the new year, with keen collectors arriving from all parts of the world.

October - November 2009

NEC: Thank you to everyone who came to see us at the Winter outing of the Antiques for Everyone fair at the NEC, Birmingham.

The largest fully-vetted fair, AFE is always popular with connoisseurs and collectors in all areas, and we sold well across the board.

 

October 2009

BURFORD: It was good to meet so many friends at the Midland Ceramic Fair, Burford, last weekend, and to have had the opportunity to encourage those new to collecting Eighteenth-Century English porcelain. The beautiful Cotswolds in fine autumn weather certainly provided the most colourful backdrop to the proceedings.

 

September 2009

This autumn, the V&A is celebrating the opening of the first phase of its new ceramics galleries - the first time this vast collection of European, Asian and Middle Eastern pottery and porcelain has been redisplayed in one hundred years. The galleries have been extensively refurbished over the past four years, and now visitors once again have the chance to see over 3,000 of the best objects in the collection. A further 26,000 ceramic objects are due to go on display in 2010.

Thank you to everyone who came along to the fair at the Worcester Porcelain Museum at the beginning of September. It is always a real treat to be there, surrounded by so many wonderful items from perhaps the most important and prolific of factories. The fair really does provide the collector with a unique opportunity to browse, research and purchase fine ceramics and glass within a museum setting. As ever, Henry Sandon MBE (former Director of the porcelain museum at Worcester, and a BBC Antiques Roadshow favourite) was a mine of information and a real joy to be around.

 

June 2009

The London Ceramics Fair on the 6th June proved to be enormously popular with collectors from all over the world looking for those rare pieces of early English porcelain. The number of ceramics-orientated fairs and events held in the capital during June certainly ensured the fair was well-attended, and some of our best sales included a fine Bow polychrome pickle dish and Giles decorated Chinese porcelain.

 

The fairs provide a great oppportunity to meet others who appreciate fine English pottery and porcelain, from the 1750s to the 1840s. Our aim is always to offer items of the finest quality, in the best condition, and at the fairest price.

Please e-mail us for your free tickets to any of our fairs!
