LAPADA

The trade association LAPADA represents art and antiques dealers in the UK. It was formed in 1974 and is based in London.

It has more than 500 members and, although the majority are based in the UK, it also has around 50 members in 16 other countries.

The association was previously called the London and Provincial Antique Dealers Association but, while it retains the LAPADA acronym in its title, it is now known as ‘The Association of Art and Antique Dealers’.
