We are only two weeks away from the Philadephia Antiques Show and excitement has been building. The show promises to be better than ever.
Like other dealers in the show, I plan on bringing many wonderful items fresh to the market. As the brochure says, "For over 50 years the Philadelphia Show has been recognized as one of this country's finest - 2016 will remind you why!" After a hiatus of a year, the show is reemerging at a much improved site, the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The Philadelphia Antiques Show is being held in a structured tent (just like a building) with improved and easy access for dealers and customers alike.
I will be featuring an amazing selection of pottery ranging from Historic to Contemporary, textiles that include a rare and early Sandpainting rug, pictorial Navajo blankets, and a fresh and stunning Germantown blanket, as well as baskets, beadwork, and jewelry, including Native American and Mexican.
I am joining other dealers in contributing a favorite object from my personal collection to the museum exhibit, "Secret Treasures: The Passion of Collecting as seen through Dealers and Their Collections". In the exhibit, I explain why this item will never be for sale.
