2021 Sneak Preview – Flower Power

In anticipation of the 2021 online San Francisco Fall Show which will go live on InCollect on October 15 at 9:00 am PST/noon EST, we wanted to share some sneak previews of our dealer’s wares. In 2017, the Show’s theme was FLOWER POWER: Floral Imagery in Art, Antiques & Design. The inspiration sprung from the beauty and romance of blooms and blossoms, and their iconography throughout the ages. The 2021 Show is living proof that – while real blooms may wilt – Flower Power is here to stay:
