Maryland Antiques Show

I went out to visit the Maryland Antiques Show this morning and thought I’d share some things I liked. The Show runs Saturday and Sunday in Towson, Maryland, just north of Baltimore.

These were my two favourite pieces.

A miniature dog’s head whistle in ivory. Wonder why!

Gorgeous ivory-handled cutlery.

  2. I too love the dog whistle. Perhaps it was a whistle to call one's dog when out hunting fowl. Either way, it is a charming piece.

    Thanks for posting on this show. Not too many of them left in my area of the country, unfortunately, but I do try to get to those that remain each year.

  3. That cutlery is beautiful. I am a sucker for old signs, too. What are those porcelain/china things on the wall? Someone comments above - clock face?? I know my grandma had a lovely clock (I always thought it was a china plate) of this type - I never realized there would be so many holes though. Thanks!

  4. LOVE the old sign "Open for Inspection" -- gorgeous -- maybe hung in a wonderful white kitchen with black counters? Such wonderful displays -- so creative! Thanks for sharing!
