Here are my comments and photos from last year:
This is a very beautiful and comfortable show. There was a fair amount of silver present, as well as a good mix of everything else. I do have to say that there was a slight emphasis on glassware and ceramics.
The following is from the Slope Antiques' booth:

Well, I attended the show today, and a good time was had by me. There was a LOT of fine silver, some of which I was able to bring home at a reasonable price.
The show was more pleasant than last year, largely due to slightly better arrangement of booths. I think the organizers brought additional rooms into use, which relieved the congestion and made it easier to view each booth. There were some new dealers, including a great new silver exhibitor. Anyway, I left the show in a much better frame of mind than last year.
As for the silver, there were many highlights. These included:
1.) A Gorham novelty bon-bon scoop in the shape of a tennis racket.
2.) A great machine-age compote by Rogers, Lunt and Bowlen, probably the best piece I have seen from that manufacturer.
3.) A wonderful Tiffany -Union Square Tea Service.
4.) Great pieces of Art-Nouveau holloware by Kerr and Unger.
5.) A Whiting Japanese cream jug.
6.) An arts & crafts iron napkin ring inlaid with sterling, maker unknown.
7.) A great aesthetic movement creamer by Meriden Britannia Co.
8.) A 7-piece Gold Plated tea and coffee service by Derby silver Co.
So what did I end up with? A great New York coin tablespoon by John Burger, circa 1790. Burger's silver is easily the equal of Forbes, Sayre and other more well known New York smiths, and always exhibits exceptional engraving.
An early piece of Tiffany flatware, a teaspoon with APPLIED ivy decoration. Tiffany dealer Nili Gittig and I were unable to find an example in a quick run-through of Dr. Hood's new book. It's probably in there, but it is unusual regardless.
Hope your shows are as good as this one!
