The inaugural D.C. Spring Antiques Show will open its doors at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center March 6-9, 2009, with a showcasing of fine art, jewelry and antiques premiering as the largest antiques show of its kind to be presented in our nation’s capital.
Over 300 of the world’s most renowned antique dealers, including A.B. Levy, William Cook, The Silver Fund, Mark J. West, Toulouse Antique Gallery and T.K. Asian Antiquities will present impressive collections from every genre including fine art, jewelry, glass, Political memorabilia, porcelain, furniture, decorative accessories, carpets, Americana, sculpture, silver, textiles and more dating from the antiquities to the 20th century. Additionally, an educational lectures series will feature an all-star lineup of speakers, from published authors to industry experts, covering a wide range of topics and genres.
The D.C. Spring Antiques Show is owned and operated by the Palm Beach Show Group, one of the nation’s leading producers of fine art, antique and jewelry shows. Scott Diament, co-owner and Chief Operating Officer of the Palm Beach Show Group, recognized the need for an antiques show in D.C. He stated, “I was surprised to find that our nation’s capital, a significant destination for historical enthusiasts and serious art collectors, lacked a large high-end antique show. D.C. is a natural choice for our next antique show and we are excited to introduce our nation’s capital to some of the finest collections of antiques, art and jewelry available for purchase in the world.”
Exhibitor and craftsman Dino Pampillonia of Pampillonia Jewelers in Washington, D.C., shares, “We’ve been doing shows with the Palm Beach Show Group for years and the caliber and reputation of their shows is extraordinary and one of the best in the industry. D.C. has needed a large, quality antique show of this size for years and we’re happy to be a part of it.”
