“Those interested in art likely gravitate to singular, finely wrought, pieces that speak of heritage, carry interesting stories, and tell of the memories embedded in them,” explains Lopa.

Taking its cue from long-running fine arts and antiques fair in Europe, in particular Masterpiece London and the European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht, Nonesuch will feature leading purveyors of objets d’art, including Tawalisi Antiques and Osmundo for furniture and home accessories; Gallery Deus with its colonial and tribal Philippine arts; Unang Panahon for antique jewelry, glass, frames and carvings; Gallery of Prints for antique maps and prints, and Leon Gallery for a wide range of art.

Besides selecting the exhibitors, the fair’s organizers have lined up a lecture series to enhance the visitor experience over the three-day event. One of the sessions will feature Emmanuel Breguet, general manager and in-house historian and archivist of the Swiss luxury watchmaker Breguet. Flying in from Geneva for the event, Breguet will speak about the brand’s heritage and other aspects of fine watchmaking.
