Philip Carrol Antiques was established in 1983, and traded at numerous Sunday antiques Fairs that were held in hotels throughout Yorkshire in the 1980s. All of the Fairs at which Philip exhibits form an important part of his business year, but my most significant events are the Fairs held at Olympia, & the B.A.D.A. Antiques Fair, Duke of York Square! In London. These are wonderful events, displaying some of the finest works of art available from dealers, who are at the height of their profession
