This Month’s Episode
This month we take a look at a Tilghman family pier table, a folk painting of Noah’s Ark, and two stoneware wine bottles in the shape of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, all on sale at Freeman’s.
Through interviews with leading figures in the world of fine and decorative arts, Curious Objects explores the hidden histories, the little-known facts, the intricacies, and the idiosyncrasies that breathe life and energy into antiques and works of art.
Since 1922, The Magazine ANTIQUES has been the leader in fine and decorative arts scholarship. We’re certain that you’ll enjoy this twenty-first century means of telling stories about the things we collect and cherish.
