Running from July 23-August 6, the show comprises around 80 examples of early furniture and works of art.

Many of the works, such as the chest, which is offered for £2450, are small in size this year. Other highlights include a little 18th century Snowdonia dresser, a small oak kneehole desk and “the narrowest full-length corner cupboard I have ever seen”, according to dealer Andrew Singleton.

As for works of art, a Malines St Anne group and some early carved panels as well as two large English delft bowls and a 16th century Italian syrup jar stand out.

Most works are available to view on the website, and visitors to the exhibition over the opening weekend will be treated to a glass of wine and a chance to admire the specially assembled collection in person.

The annual event is slightly later than usual as Singleton has been finalising the sale of his building in Yoxford. He has taken an initial two-year lease on the ground floor so will continue trading there.
