The British Antique Dealers’ Association (BADA) is the trade association for the leading antique dealers in Britain. Since its foundation in 1918 BADA has set the standard for trading in the antiques business. Its main aim is to establish and maintain confidence between its members and the public, thus ensuring that a member of the public can have confidence when buying from, or selling to, a member of the BADA.
Trinity House was elected to become a BADA member as a result of our reputation for integrity, our wide knowledge of fine arts and the high quality of our stock. Our business standards and expertise are reviewed annually by BADA to ensure that we continue to adhere to their vigorously enforced Code.
With over 600 members, the Association of Art & Antique Dealers (LAPADA) is the largest association of professional art and antique dealers in the UK.
Trinity House’s LAPADA membership is thanks to our adherence to their Code of Conduct, and our proven ability to meet their requirements of experience, the quality of stock and our knowledge of fine art.
The LAPADA Code of Conduct includes the fair and accurate labelling and pricing of all works in the gallery, and clear information regarding any major restoration or alteration work that has been carried out to a work. Our membership of LAPADA and commitment to its Code of Conduct, gives our buyers confidence when purchasing a work from us.
The Society of London Art Dealers (SLAD) is a principle trade association in the UK for dealers in fine art. It was established in 1932 and is a member of the British Art Market Federation.
As a member of SLAD, Trinity House’s business practices are carefully reviewed by its Executive Committee to ensure that we continue to meet the highest standards of honesty, integrity, expertise and quality of stock.
