Antiques for all!

Mary de Buhr Antiques

It's frightfully cold here today, setting a new record low, so it's a good day to stay inside and update the website. February is zooming by which means it's time to plan a trip to Amishland in Central Illinois. A GATHERING ON THE PRAIRIE, the original show in Arthur, IL held at The Otto Center, is the place to be for country primitives and Early Americana. March 7, from 8-3 is the time to gather there. Surely by then the weather will settle down a bit and give us a glimpse of spring. But, we'll be there no matter what the weather! The Otto Center is a large, dry, warm building well lighted for your comfort and joy!!! My booth will be filled with 18th and early 19th Century furniture and accessories that I have chosen with care.
Some of the objects offered will be:
A very reasonably priced New England Style Settle
A very large early New England painted fireplace surround and mantle
Two amazing painted drysink/bucket benches
A taller stepback bucket bench
A small trestle table, perfect size to put next to a chair or sofa
An early painted slatback arm chair, rocker with mushroom handholds
An early linsey wool quilt
Treenware, large and small
Pewter charger
Early Leather covered books
Baskets and so much more

The weekend following Arthur we'll be exhibiting at The 58th Spring Fox Valley Antiques Show. This spring show features "AMERICAN INGENUITY" and the dates are March 14, and 15, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 10-4. The show is held at the Kane County Fairgrounds on Randall Road in St. Charles, IL. Some favorite objects I will offer in St. Charles are:
A small painted mantle with an attached mural
A country upholstered sofa
A period wing chair
A painted slatback arm chair from 1700
A small sawbuck table with Maine provenance
An early country desk
An early linsey wool quilt Early lighting and other appropriate accessories from the 1700 and early 1800's.

I look forward to seeing you at one or both of these fine shows.
