When it debuted in 1979, the Fall Antiques Show was the country’s first “all-American” show. Now the show is firmly established as the foremost Americana show in the country, with the finest selection of country and formal furniture, toys, folk art, textiles, quilts, fine art, garden design, marine art, paintings, pottery and samplers. The 21st annual Fall Antiques Show will take place November 18-21, with a preview on Wednesday, November 17th, at the landmarked Park Avenue Armory .

The Fall Antiques Show gathers 70 outstanding dealers from all over the United States, including Carl Hammer Gallery (Chicago, IL) with masterworks by American self-taught artists; Kathryn Berenson (Washington, D.C.) specializing in American and French antique textiles; Jeffrey Tillou (Litchfield, CT) exhibiting American folk art; America Hurrah (New York, NY) offering antique American quilts, rugs and folk art, and American Indian art; M. Finkel & Daughter (Philadelphia, PA) with the finest examples of American samplers and needlework; American Folk Art Gallery (New York, NY) showing fine country painted furniture, quilts and early accessories; and John Sideli/Melissa Greene (Sheffield, MA and Westport, CT) with American folk art and architectural items. After a short hiatus Samuel Herrup (Sheffield, MA) The Pollacks (Chicago, IL), Marna Anderson (New Paltz, NY), and Nancy Wells (York, ME) will be returning to the show.

The opening night gala will be sponsored by Country Living magazine and Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company. All proceeds will benefit the Museum of American Folk Art. The chairperson for this year’s preview is Paul J. La Perriere, Executive Vice President of Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company. Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company will also sponsor a special exhibition at the show entitled “Millennial Dreams”, which will be presented by the Museum of American Folk Art. The exhibition will complement the Museum’s concurrent presentation, “Millennial Dreams: The Utopian Vision in American Folk Art” at its Eva and Morris Feld Gallery in Lincoln Square. “In the Company of Experts”, a series of morning walking tours will be offered on Thursday and Saturday. Each tour will be conducted prior to the opening of the show and will include a continental breakfast.
