It has been a difficult summer this year.
Holly Lane Antiques has had to run in second place behind cleaning out my parent's house and working on estate matters. Just what does an antiques dealer with expertise in Early English White Ironstone and Antique Haviland Limoges China do with a house full of 1940's mahogany furniture and Asian accessories? I am totally out of my comfort zone.
We have tried to continue with our summer Antiques Shows schedule and escaping into the world we know has been a welcome relief. We are looking forward to participating in a new show next weekend at Hyannis on Cape Cod. Marvin Getman is a great show promoter and if anyone can make a success of a new show in this economy he can. It will run Saturday and Sunday - August 28th and 29th.
For the first time we will be selling our treasures at September Brimfield instead of just being there looking for treasures to sell. We will be in the J & J field September 10th and 11th - Friday and Saturday of Brimfield week. This has always been our favorite field to visit and was our first choice when we decided to be a part of Brimfield. If you have never visited Brimfield during one of the three weeks it is open during the summer you have missed a real antiques adventure. Plan to visit this September and if you do, come find Holly Lane Antiques at J & J's field. We would love the opportunity to meet our internet followers!
At both of these shows we will be featuring our large collection of Early English White Ironstone - setting off all of that beautiful white with blue transferware. We will also have a sampling of our many patterns of antique Haviland Limoges china and bring what remains of the large selection of the rare Meadow Visitors pattern of Haviland that we purchased at auction last summer including this asparagus dish and butter basket. As always - our china displays are accented with beautiful English linens and vintage silver and glass.
