This year’s edition of Animal Dando & Friends will run in his showrooms at 34 Market Street, Bradford-on-Avon from March 20 to April 3.

As is the Dando custom, the show comprises around 150 antique pottery and porcelain figures and animals; Victorian and earlier Staffordshire, Derby, Bow and Pratt ware are well represented.

Most of the exhibits are fresh stock bought over the past 10 months especially for the event.

Last year proved their best ever exhibition so this year the Dandos are putting all their energies into this venture, one result of which is that, for the first time in many years, they will not be at the BADA fair.

The exhibition goes on the Internet (www.andrewdando.co.uk) from noon on March 25, a move which proved very beneficial last year.

Prices range from £100 to around £8000.
