New exhibition offers unique gifts to delight and intrigue family and friends.
This Christmas Rupert Wace Ancient Art, leading dealers in Ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Near Eastern antiquities, has the perfect festive offering with its annual Christmas Exhibition.
This year’s Christmas Exhibition will be the first in Rupert Wace’s new gallery in Crown Passage, an 18thcentury artisan’s house in the historic heart of the art world and a stone’s throw away from Christie’s.
Taking place from 3rd to 23rd December, the Christmas Exhibition will offer a treasure trove of beautiful finds, from small scale objects and sculptures to stunning wearable jewellery. All perfect to tempt the established collector, whilst introducing a new audience to the fascinating world of ancient art and its continuing appeal to the modern aesthetic.
The selling exhibition provides an unrivalled opportunity to acquire timeless gifts with fascinating histories from diverse cultures including those of ancient Egypt, the Classical Mediterranean world, Northern Europe and the Near East.
Over 100 objects will be on display and available for purchase with prices starting from only a few hundred pounds, with many items priced under £1,000. Highlights from this year’s exhibition include:
- Roman animal brooches of bronze – ideal gifts for young would-be collectors
- A Byzantine double bezel gold ring
- Parthian gold and agate pendants
These ancient treasures make for the perfect gift. Indeed, wearable ancient jewellery can offer a more meaningful, and often less expensive alternative, to contemporary designer pieces. These timeless jewels can be easily worn today – the Parthian gold pendants each have original loop fastenings, allowing them to be strung on a leather thong or gold chain.
Rupert Wace Ancient Art welcomes anyone hunting for that distinctive, one of a kind Christmas gift to this annual exhibition. With prices starting at just a few hundred pounds, all festive shoppers should find something to make this Christmas truly special, and leave with timeless presents to treasure forever.
