Charles Ede is internationally recognized as one of the world’s foremost dealers in ancient art.
The gallery opened in Mayfair, London in 1971, and has regularly produced catalogues renowned for their scholarly text and true to the principles of offering provenanced, fully-researched material. We strive to maintain a high level of scholarship. In this we are enormously helped by many academic friends.
Clients include some of the most notable private collectors in the field along with many of the world's most important museums.
We have exhibited at TEFAF Maastricht since 1998 and currently participate in the two New York sister fairs in the spring and the fall.
Past art fair participation also includes TEFAF Basel, Masterpiece London, Grosvenor House, London; The International Fine Art and Antiques Dealers Show, New York; Cultura Basel and BAAF Brussels, as well as various gallery exhibitions both in London and abroad.
The gallery is a member of several trade organisations including BADA, ADA and IADAA.
