Established in 1971, Charles Ede specializes in works of ancient art from Egypt, Greece and the Roman Empire, as well as early European art prior to circa 1000 AD.
Martin Clist (Managing Director) and Charis Tyndall (Director) of Charles Ede share works spanning a period of more than 3,000 years, from an intact Cycladic marble female figure (circa 2600 BC) to an Anglo-Saxon glass beaker dated to the 6th-7th century AD. They include pieces from the Near East, Egypt, Greece and the Roman Empire as well as Northern Europe and Britain, and are fashioned from clay, wood, marble, bronze, gold and glass, showing the wide variety of material used in the ancient world.
"TEFAF is one of the world's most important arts organizations, its fairs in Maastricht and New York are recognised as the international benchmark for not only the quality but also the variety and depth of its participants and their exhibits. 2020 saw that activity curtailed, so we were delighted to take part in this past Autumn's online presentation, and more so to be asked to create this behind-the-scenes video, which gives a flavour of what Charles Ede represents and how we work."
