The nirvana for jewelry and accessories collectors promises to showcase 1950 antique style jewelry reproductions, bracelets, brooches, timepieces, contemporary jewelry, diamonds, earrings, estate jewelry, gemstones, pearls, necklaces, and handbags.
Best known as the world’s largest indoor antique show, the event features nearly 900 established dealers from 22 countries, including an additional 100 exhibitors in the Jewelry Ballroom, which debuted last year.
“In its 52nd year, The Original Miami Beach Antique Show continues to provide attendees with a unique shopping experience and highlights a vast variety of categories found in the antique industry,” said Dan Darby, group fair director.
This show is a must-attend for serious collectors, museum curators, gallery owners, and anyone with an interest in antiques and history. Items range from 17th-19th century furniture, American and European silver to antique jewelry and watches from the Renaissance to Art Deco eras.
In order to educate South Florida’s antique collecting community, The Original Miami Beach Antique Show also will host several special sessions throughout the duration of the show including “Jewelry of the American First Ladies,” by the Association for the Study of Jewelry & Related Arts led by co-director Elyse Zorn Karlin on Friday, February 1 at 2 pm in room C222.
Raffle tickets will be available to win prizes including special antiques.
For the second consecutive year, WorthPoint, the leading online resource for item valuation and reference will be sponsoring two Appraisal Days, which will be held Februrary 2nd-3rd from noon to 5 pm. Each show attendee, with a valid ticket to the show, will have the opportunity to bring one item for valuation by a Worthologist—a WorthPoint subject-matter expert. Worthologists will give verbal appraisals of each item’s fair market value.
“We are very excited to be partnering with The Original Miami Beach Antique Show for a second year,” said Will Seippel, founder and CEO of WorthPoint Corporation. “To be able to offer free appraisal services during the show is a great honor for us educating antique enthusiasts, and the general public, on how to be even savvier when buying or selling antiques is one of our company’s main goals.”
In order to continue with the show’s philanthropic community efforts, this year’s charity raffle will benefit Paws 4 You Rescue, Inc. a non-profit animal rescue organization that save animals from euthanasia at Miami-Dade Animal Services.
Show times are noon to 8 pm on January 31st-February 3rd and noon to 6 pm on February 4th.
Admission is $20 to attend all four days. Tickets can be purchased during the show at $25 each, five tickets for $100.
