It is always a treat to visit the Delaware Antiques Show. Classy, sophisticated, subtle - it does not knock one out with razzle dazzle but rather, demonstrates educated good taste. It is not boring. On the contrary, the dealers are quite knowledgable and are happy to discuss the unique items in their booths. Winterthur benefits from the proceeds of this lovely show.
Below are a few highlights from 2016.
