The Delaware Antiques Show—one of the nation’s most acclaimed shows—features the best of American antiques and decorative arts, including furniture, paintings, rugs, ceramics, silver, and jewelry.

“I like to think that Winterthur founder Henry Francis du Pont would have a wonderful time if he returned to the Delaware Antiques Show,” said Tom Savage, director of Museum Affairs and coordinator of the show. “This show is the place to find the best in American antiques, as well as wonderful ceramics, metalworks, paintings and textiles.”

Keynote speaker Charlotte Moss has accomplished a great deal during her 33 years of work the interior design industry. In addition to receiving the New York School of Interior Design’s Centennial Medal, she was recently named to Elle Décor Grand Masters list of top designers. A prolific author, she has published 10 books. Her most recent, Charlotte Moss Entertains: Celebrations and Everyday Occasions (Rizzoli, 2018), will be a feature of her presentation at the Delaware Antiques Show.

“Charlotte has beautiful taste,” said Savage. “She is a seasoned traveler and dedicated student of the fine and decorative arts who brings a deep understanding to her design work that is informed by her study of American, British, and Continental design. She is also a great preservationist, serving currently on the board of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Monticello. She serves on the Advisory Board of the New York School of Interior Design, where she received an Honorary Doctorate Degree. And she is a noted philanthropist who supports many causes.”

Charlotte’s lecture, “The Pursuit of Beauty: Thirty Years in Design,” on Friday, November 9, at 10 am, is included with admission. A book signing will follow.

This year’s loan exhibit is In Fine Form: The Striking Silhouette. The exhibition reveals the many ways in which the silhouette has been used in graphic design, the fine and decorative arts, fashion, theater, and the built environment by placing objects “in conversation” with one another on a journey to uncover the history of the enduring silhouette. The exhibition features rare objects from the museum and library collections, including illustrations from the 18th-century’s most lavish publication, Collection of Etruscan, Greek, and Roman Antiquities from the Cabinet of the Honourable William Hamilton, as well as rare silhouette albums, scherenschnitte (cut paper designs), wallpaper, Japanese stencils, and book covers.
