Charleston Antiques Show

12th annual Charleston Antiques Show

March 20 - March 22, 2015
Preview Party, March 19
                                                       

Inspired by the rich historical, architectural and cultural heritage of Charleston, the annual Charleston Antiques Show is a premier destination for collectors and enthusiasts who enjoy seeing and learning about incorporating antiques into modern-day decor. The Antiques Show is a showcase of English, European, and American period furnishings, decorative arts and fine art, architectural elements, garden furniture, vintage jewelry, and silver--all late 17th to 20th centuries.

Founded in 1670, Charleston quickly rose to prominence as the colonies’ most significant seaport, importing the finest in 18th and 19th century material culture. Today the city’s legacy of Continental, European and Asian influences can still be found in its alluring architecture and decorative arts.

Through the Show's educational and entertaining special events, collectors have a unique opportunity to purchase and learn more about everything from exquisite furniture and fine art to rare maps, jewelry, posters, prints and quilts.

Show Chair: Peggy Rash
Honorary Show Chair: Carolyne Roehm

The Charleston Antiques Show is managed by The Antiques Council.
