Burton Antiques Market will host the June 12 exhibition: Yenke Peddler antiques
CLEVELAND, Ohio – The daylight continues to lengthen and we are thankful for this summer prelude. Another sign of summer: the Burton Antiques Market.
It has long been a storytelling show, and even with the challenges of the past year, they were still able to offer biannual gatherings. That, my friends, is dedication!
Let your collector spirit soar for the June Day Show on Saturday 12 at the Geauga County Fairgrounds in Burton.
Early risers can rush from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. for a $ 25 entrance fee to get a first glimpse. General admission is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for $ 10, while a subsequent discounted shopping period is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for just $ 5.
With the rising cost of wood and other raw materials, heritage value should be relevant when considering wood furniture. Real wood lasts longer than fiberboard and can be refinished.
Always look at the function and see if there is room to increase the level of performance. Adding interior sliding shelves, wire organizers, or just cup holders can provide additional benefits.
The old-fashioned Wooten desk was a marvel of compartments and efficiency. After the Civil War, order and ease of control were desired.
Offering everything at his fingertips, this king of the den was known by several ranks: ordinary, standard, extra grade and above. Some had filing boxes and spring locks, while others featured bronze hardware and ornate carvings.
The attached photos are of an antique mahogany sofa table, circa the early 1900s. The table was bequeathed to me by my aunt over 20 years ago. It originally belonged to his mother-in-law. Let me know what you think.
What a beautiful bookcase table with the manufacturer’s nameplate – Hannahs Furniture, Kenosha Wisconsin, USA. It has a neo-colonial style and would make a great sofa table or entryway.
Hannahs was incorporated in the 1890s, providing quality furniture. With the original finish, provenance and escalating wood prices, the value could reach $ 500. Years ago, it could have been in a living room, holding personal business cards left by visitors.
