The San Francisco Fall Antique show Preview is one of the fanciest and chicest events of the year and returned this year to a docked up Fort Mason to kick off the four-day show on Wednesday, October 22, 2014.
The glamorous event benefits Enterprise for High School Students, a San Francisco non-profit that engages and empowers Bay Area high school students to develop skills for their future through job readiness training, employment, and career exploration.
The SFFAS is the oldest and most prestigious international art and antiques show on the West Coast. It features approximately sixty dealers from across the United States and Europe. Guests have an opportunity to admire and purchase an extraordinary range of fine and decorative arts representing all styles and periods including American, English, Continental, and Asian furniture, silver, ceramics, glass, jewelry, rugs, textiles, paintings, prints, and photographs.
Michele Goss, Connoisseurs Circle Chair- who chaired the event for 10 years - and Adrianna Pope Sullivan, the 2014 committee chair greeted guests to the “The Rush of Gold” themed show in homage to the 1849 Gold Rush. Appropriately, a 6.07-pound “Butte Nugget,” formed in the Sierra Nevada some 50 million years ago, was displayed to the awe of guests creating a lot of buzz and excitement.
