To Do: Washington Antiques Show

During the Washington Antiques Show this weekend, you can browse furniture, vintage jewelry, ceramics, silver, garden accents, and more from 45 dealers. The show’s theme this year is “Inspirations from the Garden.” Dealers—from Washington, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New York, Portugal, and more—will showcase garden motifs such as flowers, birds, vines, and topiary.  There are also lectures, appraisals, and a new collectors’ evening with a talk by James Archer Abbott, former curator of the Woodrow Wilson House in Northwest DC.
