It's time for the next collection of antique dealers from the Lauritzen Gardens Antique and Garden Show! This is the last installment of photos from the show... 


I spend some serious time in Zane's booth. He and his wife bring exquisite antiques and I can always count on finding something I can't live without.









The photo below holds the item I couldn't live without...





These red intaglio seals were awesome. Alessandra Branca, our Saturday speaker, loved them and actually featured intaglios on a red background in her slideshow presentation.








My friend Kyle, the fab florist and my co-chair for this event next year is so clever... Here's what she picked up... 

While I'm dilly dallying around shopping for knick knacks, she brings home a bust...


When it comes to majolica, Jerry's been around the block a time or two. The man knows his stuff! 

Charming...


These were my favorite! Mom, don't you love them? Such a pretty green.





Remember my post on Black Tulip a few weeks ago? So happy to see them again... and so happy they brought their antiques with them!










A new dealer from Illinois and a great addition to the show!



Loved this stool with the charming needlepoint and those beautiful legs...







Always a pleasure to see the outstanding pieces from Vandekar...


I especially loved the cat and dog duo...




Spectacular plates.

           Soloman Suchard Antiques

Although they are equally known for their fine art collection,

I am obsessed with their famous french faience collection...



I seriously contemplated purchasing this dude with his orange pants and belt and clogs...

Look at the moon shape!




The collection perfectly epitomizes french country doesn't it? 
Must be why I am so attracted to this dealer!

Next up: What I brought home from the show...

HI JAN,
Wow, serious loveliness here. I found my corner where I could spend hours admiring the French Faience collection. Awesome Quimper collection! Can't wait to see what you brought home. I'm betting the charming dude in the orange pants............

Fabulous antiques. I have one of those teal green flower pattern majolica plates. Didn't pay a lot for it either.

Just to be clear...I was referring to you, Jan when I said lucky to have such an amazing antique show to look forward to attending each year and lucky that you are able to enjoy it, I though, am lucky that you share it with us and look forward to your reporting of it!

How is it that I am just finding you? this is impossible!!Your blog is gorgeous and what a post of beautiful things. The majolica is to die for. And the other kicker of me just finding you is that you have referred to orange alot, and that is my most favorite color. I am so glad I found you in my followers! Thank you. Wish it had been sooner!
