AN ART Deco fair is due to run over an entire weekend by popular demand.

Eltham Palace, in Court Yard, Eltham, will be loaded with 1930s antiques and reproduction pieces this Saturday from noon to 5pm, and Sunday from 10am to 5pm.

The traditionally one-day fair attracts enthusiasts from around the country in search of the perfect objet d'art to add to their collection.

Verity Hales, visitor operations officer, said: "Eltham Palace offers the chance to purchase elegant period pieces that will give your home a stylish Art Deco edge. Every year we see more of Britain's Art Deco dealers bringing their finest quality pieces to our biannual fair."

Specialist dealers will be in the palace's Tudor Great Hall selling furniture, collectibles, handbags and accessories, glassware, lighting and textiles. The Art Deco mansion built by Stephen and Virginia Courtauld and the palace's 19 acres of gardens will also be open to visitors.
