CINOA represents 5000 dealers from 32 associations in 22 countries. Dealers cover a wide array of specialties from antiquities to contemporary art. Membership of CINOA is based on associations which bind their dealer members to adhere to reputable standards of quality, expertise and integrity.
The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers
The golden chandelier symbol displayed in a window or at a fair, is the sign of membership of LAPADA, the Association of Art & Antiques Dealers. Since its inception in 1974, LAPADA's membership has grown to over 600 members making it the largest association of professional art and antiques dealers in the United Kingdom. Membership is only open to those who meet the Association's requirements as to experience, quality of stock and knowledge of their subject. Between them, members cover virtually every discipline from antiquities to contemporary fine art.
LAPADA was the first antiques trade association to introduce a Code of Practice, the purpose of which is to reassure the public and give them confidence when they make a purchase from a member. All members have agreed to abide by this strict Code of Practice and in the unlikely event of a dispute, the Association's free Conciliation Service.
The Cotswolds Art & Antique Dealers' Association
Formed in 1978, CADA represents the largest concentration of serious art and antique dealers outside London. The association's aims are to promote its members and to offer a high standard of art and antiques and services to buyers from both at home and abroad. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, CADA members who have shops and galleries both large and small are all specialists in their chosen fields and this diversity has made the Cotswolds a hunting ground for the collector, interior designers & art and antique dealers worldwide.
Thames Valley Antique Dealers Association
TVADA’s distinctive logo “tamesis” is inspired by a keystone on the bridge at Henley on Thames and has been used since the association was formed in 1989. Our aim is to unite the antiques dealers of the Thames Valley, to support and promote members and provide a more complete service for their customers. It is run by members who willingly volunteer their time to help encourage visitors into the Thames Valley’s vibrant towns and villages, and its many antique shops and galleries.
This historic and picturesque area is conveniently close to London and served by the major routes of the M4, M40 and A34 which includes Windsor, famous for its magnificent castle, only a 30 minute drive from London, to the dreaming spires of Oxford and beyond.
