A group of antique dealers, under the auspices of the National Antiques and Decorative Arts Association (Naada), are coming to Cape Town to present the National Cape Antiques Fair.

It will take place at the Great Cellar, Alphen Estate in Constantia from Friday to Sunday.

These antique dealers, who run antique fairs at Nelson Mandela Square and Hyde Park Corner in Johannesburg and Brooklyn Square in Pretoria and who stage the biggest and most prestigious annual antiques fair in the country, are bringing this fair to the Mother City.

A variety of antiques, collectables and decorative arts will be on show at the Great Cellar.

Stephan Welz Auctioneers have partnered with the fair to hold daily valuations.

The South African Riding for the Disabled Association (Sarda) will receive a donation from the entrance fees collected.

“The antiques fair is the place to find that statement piece that will be the talking point of your home, perhaps an impressive armoire for your new home or an antique sideboard to fill that space in your lounge. Add to your collection of silver, find a favourite porcelain figurine or a traditional tea set, pick up a unique piece of jewellery or simply find something special that catches your eye,” says Giuli Osso, one of the event organisers.

New and younger collectors will love trying on vintage clothing, finding costume jewellery or seeing the latest in the steam punk trend that marries Victorian with Game of Thrones punk. More modern collectables such as Art Deco pieces, 20th Century furniture, ’70s retro and ’60s advertising billboards are the antiques of tomorrow.

Art will be showcased as part of the exquisite decor settings – with both contemporary and SA art masters for sale. Dealers will also have some key art pieces for sale, such as a rare Picasso drawing, a Maud Sumner oil, a Tinus de Jonge and a Greg Boonzaier painting.

Members of the public can take their valuable items to be appraised by experts of Stephan Welz & Company V For more information visit or email
