In addition to antiques from esteemed dealers, the 2014 show will feature a loan exhibit entitled Fifty Objects That Shaped Rhode Island History. The exhibit strives to tell the state's story from its founding through the 20th century via such items as Roger Williams' compass-sundial and the shirt Governor Garrahy wore during the Blizzard of 1978.
Newport Antiques Show
Since 2007, the Newport Antiques Show has culled some of the most elegant and important Americana antiques for its massive annual shows. Show manager Diana H. Bittel, a distinguished antiques dealer in her own right, carefully selects the dealers to be featured, eventually inviting a lucky 40 to showcase their wares. With paintings, furniture, folk art, jewelry, and other one-of-a-kind pieces, antiques aficionados are sure to find an item that complements their home decor, appeals to their sense of history, or gives them a convenient shortcut to Narnia. The show also gives back by benefiting the Newport Historical Society and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County.
