The Home & Antiques magazine team had a sneak preview of this year's LAPADA Fair and have selected a few favourites, among them a monumental Roman Inscription plaque from ArtAncient(stand 8), a stunning "The Tree of Life" necklace made by Salvador Dalí(!!!) - Didier (Stand A10) and our own Trompe L'oeil Solid Silver Tankard - (Stand C10).

A piece that has to be handled to be fully appreciated, this decorative tankard in trompe l’oeil resembles a very detailed house in pan-Slavic style featuring wood-clad walls and a fish-scale roof, surrounded by pine trees in solid silver. Dating to 1871 Moscow, this Imperial Russian piece is fully hallmarked with the Russian silver mark 84 (875 standard) and shone through as a very rare and prized example.
