SAN FRANCISCO – This year marked the 25th anniversary of California’s premier event, the Art Deco and Modernism Show. More than 150 exhibitors joined the show, Dec. 5-6 at The Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco. Deborah and Peter Keresztury, producers, and Gail Etzler, Director, celebrated their silver anniversary with many of the dealers who have been participating in the show since it began in 1984.

Dealers brought their finest merchandise to the sale, including Heywood Wakefield furniture, 20th century lighting fixtures, Danish Modern furniture, vintage posters, Catalin radios, Deco collectables, designer, costume and Bakelite jewelry, men’s and women’s vintage clothing and much more.

In addition to the great furniture, art, pottery, vintage clothing, jewelry and collectables, there was a vintage fashion show Dec. 5, produced by Deborah Rush featuring beaded gowns of the 20th century and a swing dance performance with Michael and Hep Jen Dec. 6. The music of the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra was heard as you entered the show and Sara Klotz de Aguilar of Sara and Swingtime, played the piano and sang songs from the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s throughout the weekend at the back mezzanine.

The Art Deco and Modernism Shows are held twice a year; the next events are scheduled for June 5-6 and Dec. 4-5, 2010.
