dmg world media today reported strong attendance and exhibitor sales at the premier Washington DC Antiques Art & Jewelry Show. The show was held October 15-18 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and brought together more than 100 dealers from all over the world.
The Washington DC Antiques Art & Jewelry Show exhibited rare and unusual historical art collections and antiques; original paintings and works of art spanning more than three centuries; fine American and European silver; highly sought 19th and 20th century art glass such as Tiffany, Lalique, Galle and many others.
“This was our first year having a show in the District of Columbia, and we’re very pleased with the feedback from our dealers and consumers about their experience at the show,” said Andrea Canady, fair director for the Washington DC Antiques Art & Jewelry Show. “Our goal was to provide our dealers with a new venue where collectors and antique enthusiasts could come to view and purchase a wide variety of impeccable merchandise.”
Exhibitor comments on the last day of the show were favorable.
Mimi Levine with Mimi and Steve Levine Antiques in Alexandria, Va., said, “Attendance was great! There was an outstanding quality of merchandise available. I would love to do this show again.”
