The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show • Oct 28-31, 2010

 If you have never been to this magnificent antiques show, you really should get there.  It is filled with museum quality antiques in a showroom type setting.  The show is at Fort Mason in the beautiful Marina district, between Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge on San Francisco Bay.

The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show bills itself as the oldest continuously operating international antiques show on the West Coast. The Show features approximately seventy dealers from across the United States and Europe, offering for sale an extraordinary range of fine and decorative arts representing all styles and periods including American, English, Continental, and Asian furniture, silver, ceramics, glass, jewelry, rugs, textiles, paintings, prints, and photographs. The show is fully vetted and the dealers are all extremely knowledgeable.

Whether you are in the market for a fantastic old piece, want to attend one of the excellent lectures, or just enjoy the museum-like experience, this show is worth it.  The themed exhibit and lectures are focused on Chinoiserie, that design approach that incorporates the wonders of Asian motifs into Western objects.
