Join me at the 47th Annual Delaware Antiques Show

Last Thursday, I traveled to Wilmington, Delaware to attend the 47th Annual Delaware Antiques Show, which ran from November 5-7 and featured more than sixty antiques dealers.  This show is one of the oldest and most prestigious in this country and was run under the auspices of Thomas Savage, Director of Museum Affairs for Winterthur Museum and Country Estate.  The show benefits educational programming at the museum.  This year, I had the great honor of being asked to kick off the event by giving a lecture.  The topic was “Skylands – An American Treasure,” my home in Seal Harbor, Maine.  I focused on the antiques I have in and around the house with a particular emphasis on my faux bois collection.  I hope you enjoy browsing through some of the fabulous antiques that I saw on my visit.
