Antiques At Elm Bank

Beautiful Gardens And Wonderful Antiques - A Perfect Combination!

Antiques At Elm Bank is a most special antiques show in Wellesley with white tents filled with antiques nestled amongst the gardens of this estate. The gardens are maintained by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and one could not ask for a more perfect setting.

Holly Lane Antiques was next to the Children's Garden - a most unique and delightful area for children to experience play in a garden. Truly a place you should visit if ever in the area with young ones.

Early Blue Transfer Ware is always a favorite along with Flow Blue china. A pair of antique Meissen reticulated plates combine perfectly with the blue and white theme on this table.

Wonderful color in this transfer ware dessert set! The drainers create the biggest challenge to our booth visitors with the most "What is it?" questions. Long separated from their platters these charming pieces are now popular used as wall art.

Our large collection of English White Ironstone always brings comments about its variety of shapes and wonderful condition considering it was the farmer's china well over 100 years ago.

There is nothing quite like fine antique Haviland Limoges china and this chocolate set is an exquisite example of antique Haviland. The Meadow Visitors pattern dating to c.1880's is pure delight with different butterflies on each piece.

Antique Haviland featuring pink roses and gold trim - a perennial favorite!

We are able to include small pieces of furniture when we are at outdoors shows.

Very blue hydrangea grow well in Little Compton being so close to the ocean. These were picked from our garden the evening before the show and were enjoyed by many of our booth visitors.

As always our favorite part of antiques shows is the time we spend with those that visit our booth - reacquainting with past customers, helping the novice learn more about an item and mostly just sharing the joy of beautiful things from times past.

Holly Lane Antiques would love to have you visit our booth at one of our shows to see and touch our special antique items in person. Contact us to be added to our show mailing list at hollyln@sprintmail.com.
