Antique aficionados, lend us your ears: The Original Miami Beach Antique show is upon us.
Touted as the world’s largest indoor antique show, the notable show takes place Jan. 30 to Feb. 3, 2015 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Now in its 54th year, U.S. Antique Shows showcases 1,000 established dealers from across the globe, featuring Renaissance to Art Deco era collections such as fine art, American and European silver, antique jewelry, 17th-19th century furniture and more.
“The Original Miami Beach Antique Show offers a vast selection of exceptional antiques from dealers worldwide and sets the pace in the antique market for the entire year,” Emerald Expositions Vice President and U.S. Antique Shows General Manager Dan Darby says. “At the 2015 show, attendees can look forward to an increased presence from European exhibitors due in part to U.S. Antique Shows global partnership with the Italian-based Mercanteinfiera,” he adds
U.S. Antique Shows is also a proponent of continuing antique jewelry education and will premiere the Second Annual Jewelry History Series prior to the start of the show on Jan. 30. The jewelry conference takes place on Jan. 28 to 29, and boasts a comprehensive schedule including presentations from an array of jewelry experts, a complementary tour of the Bass Museum of Art and a tour of select booths prior to the opening of the show.
There’s a feel-good factor, too. In order to continue with the show’s ongoing philanthropic community efforts, this year’s charity raffle will benefit Autism Speaks. The non-profit organization is the world leader in funding research and increasing awareness of the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, along with advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Raffle tickets will be available to win prizes — think Rolex watches, Miami Heat, special antique pieces and more!
Show times are Friday, Jan. 30 to Monday, Feb. 2 from 12 to 8 p.m. and Tuesday, Feb. 3 from 12 to 5 p.m. Admission is $20 to attend all five days. For more information about the show or to purchase tickets, call 239.732.6642 or visit here.
