Chester County Antiques Show 2019

The Chester County Antiques Show 2019, was this past weekend, benefiting the Chester County Historical Society it is in its 37th year. Held at the Church Farm School it is a great size show with some excellent dealers from the East Coast, New England and Mid Atlantic region. I got to attend the opening night party as my brother was exhibiting and went back briefly on Sunday morning when there was a little more space to see some of the pieces on display.

I have managed and organized the Main Line Antiques Show for many years and several of the dealers used to exhibit with us when the show was running. Many had questions for me on Friday night hoping that I had good news for them that the show might run this year. But, not having a date that is workable with other shows and local events that are running makes it look like this will be the second year The Main Line Antiques Show will not run and Surrey Services for Seniors will not benefit from the show.

I saw a variety of wonderful items at the Chester County Antiques Show 2019 that caught my eye. Let me know what you think about these?

An Australian early 20th century piece with all native birds cast in metal and painted, with a good provenance from the collection of one of the Wallace family I believe in NY who owned Reader's Digest.

I thought this gorgeous metal urn with lion head terminals to the handles would look great in a conservatory or on a patio filled with plants.


Or may be you would like this for a hoot! Found in New Hampshire and not dated it certainly was a lovely piece.

Wooden Owl

There were plenty of paintings, but I did not see anything like Book Smart although some of the dealers might have been mistaken for him...
