Art & Antiques Fair at Château de Deulin

Things of Interest: A Quirky Weather Vane

Weather vanes, an instrument used to show the direction of the wind, date all the way back to the Roman Empire and Ancient Greece. They were quite useful back then, when weather reports weren’t available at the click of a button like it is today on phones and weather channels. Careful and consistent observation of these weather could also indicate an oncoming storm or cold snap.

Antique Shop in Bruges

Antiques have been a part of our family for decades! Anthony Short Antiques first opened an antiques gallery 23 years ago in Antwerp and our family has been in the antiques trade for over 50 years in Knokke-Zoute, Belgium. In 2008 my family and I made the move to the UK, leaving my successful shop in Antwerp in order to embark on a whole new adventure in the charming town of Petworth.

Welcome to our Belgium showroom

In addition to our  Petworth, West Sussex showroom we have now opened a wonderful new showroom in Brugge, Belgium.
In Brugge we offer period antiques and fine works of art and a wonderful collection of contemporary paintings.
