LAPADA is the UK’s largest trade association for professional art & antiques dealers.

The 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. Although the majority of its membership is UK based, LAPADA also currently has 50 members in 16 other countries. 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.

Iain Marr Antiques of Beauly is the most northerly LAPADA member. We are delighted to have been selected by LAPADA as a member and we acknowledge our responsibility as one.

Being a LAPADA member gives customers confidence and trust in our transactions, whether buying, selling or valuing.
