Mount Hope Garden & Antiques Fair
Holly Lane Antiques spent the weekend participating in the Mount Hope Garden And Antiques Fair in Bristol RI. All of the booths were located in a large tent on the grounds of this historic house. It was a beautiful show combining unusual plants along with the varied antiques. The dealers provided a wide assortment of antiques from garden antiques to country primitives to the more traditional furniture and china and linens and rugs. The drippy, rainy weather continued all weekend but did not dampen the enthusiasm of those who came to enjoy this experience.
Holly Lane Antiques featured the Antique Haviland Limoges China in the Meadow Visitors pattern that has been discussed in previous blogs along with their very popular collection of early English Ironstone. Also featured and quickly sold were several unsual antique Haviland plates with a garden theme in border vignettes.
