Benchmark of Palm Beach (now headquartered in Blue Ridge, Georgia) and new to Round Top will be bringing a large selection of exquisite jewelry. Their beautiful collection covers everything ranging from the Victorian and Edwardian periods right through the turn of the last century and includes art deco, and the fabulous, big and bold vintage yellow gold and diamond jewelry of the ‘60s and ‘70s.
George Timmons Antique Prints is well known for their “cut above” works of art on paper. Perusing this collection is always exciting when one is looking for the perfect something to add beauty, and value to an art collection. Here you’ll find everything from natural history subjects, to antiquarian maps of Texas, the south and west, as well as a variety of French posters and Americana images such as Currier and Ives, and Alfred Bierstadt. There are also unique advertising pieces, and higher end books to be discovered.
Kent Washburn Antiques of San Antonio features a wide variety of stunning glass. “I actually show in three locations during the Round Top area-wide show and bring something different to each show, says Washburn. “ At the Sterling McCall Antique Showcase, I’ll be showing depression-era glass that will include pink and green patterns and an extensive variety of stemware. I’ll also be bringing a very valuable and complete set (8 place settings) of Fostoria Wisteria with Tiffin Twilight accents.”
For the men in one’s life, drop them off or shop for them yourself at the booth occupied by Hawkins Antiques of Valdez, North Carolina. Here they’ll revel in beautiful Indian and western artifacts, old airplane propellers and Civil and Indian War items. Even women drool over the beautifully restored and mounted outboard motors from the ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s. They’re diminutive, and shine like new pennies. There are also lever-action Winchesters, and perfectly restored antique fans from the early 1900s “so beautiful they’ll hurt you,” according to Fred Hawkins who applies his knowledge and meticulous restoration skills to these increasingly hard-to-find items.
Fanshawe-Blaine of Raphine, Virginia will be showcasing their sophisticated collection of international antiques, furnishings and textiles. Their booth is a delightful feast for the senses complete with curious finds, architectural artifacts, boxes and trugs, enamelware and so much more. And it’s all displayed to spark your imagination.
