The biannual event runs from February 1-14 at the County Grandstand of Chester Racecourse.
Exhibitor Margaret Melody of local firm Melody Antiques says: “Chester is our favourite fair. We’ve been exhibiting at the Racecourse for more than 25 years and it’s a great opportunity to catch up with old customers from across Cheshire and north Wales.”
Newcomers include Dovecote Antiques, previously to be found only at Art & Antiques for Everyone which has been scrapped for this year, and Freya Hart, a specialist in jewellery as well as Bakelite and plastic.
Also standing at the fair are Jo Bennett Fine Paintings of Manchester, Ben Cooper, a specialist in Chinese ceramics and works of art and Garret & Hurst Sculpture.
Penman Fairs launched the Chester event in 1989 and it was taken over by Cooper Events in 2009.
A wide range of antiques is available and prices reach up to around £50,000.
