The beloved Atlanta Cathedral Show is nearly here–we finished loading the truck today! Considered to be the finest antiques show in Atlanta, this marks the 43rd year of this remarkable show (details at: http://www.cathedralantiques.org/ ). Rich in every aspect of the fine and decorative arts, this grand show in an equally grand space offers something for everyone! A $25.00 baby gift–absolutely! A $20,000 grand country French Buffet a deux corps–absolutely! A fine oriental rug or great print or superb painting–absolutely! And fun parties and excellent lectures as well!
Here is a peak at a few pieces we are bringing–visit that website to link to other dealers and preview their offerings.
An elegant, perfectly proportioned London 18th century neo-classical bowfront chest of a diminutive size suitable for every room in the house:
Or the most charming Georgian mule chest in many years–warm pine, not oak, and delicately proportioned–a jewel found in Bath! One of our favorite forms with a lift top storage and drawers below. As so often, it features a brilliant use of panelling.
Rarely do we find a set of 12 antique chairs–so often the long sets have been split up by generations of shared inheritance (makes me crazy visiting the great houses of England where large sets abound because the eldest got it all!). This sophisticated country French set in warm beech plays on the Montgolfier balloon form from seats to back splats–truly wonderful. The bronze mounts are replacements for wooden ones that had been mostly lost over generations of use.
Of course it is not just furniture that is newly arrived and off to Atlanta–some of our delightful Vintage Pub Sign collection will also be featured including this charmingly appropriate sign:
We will have cabinets of porcelain, cases of silver and lovely warm French and English copper such as this signed French Stock Pot.
Hope to see you this week in Atlanta!
