The opening gala of the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show at Fort Mason is one of our favorite social events of fall. Spectacular art and furnishings and an array of memorable food by McCalls draw an impressive crowd of San Francisco’s movers and shakers, creative talents and fashionistas each time.

This year the organizers, headed by new Director Ariane Trimuschat, are “putting on the Ritz”with the theme of “Jazz Moderne: Art Deco & the Avantgarde”.

Participating dealers will be selling special treasures from this glamorous period. Among them are Therien & Co., Foster-Gwin, Epoca, Gallery 925, and Xanadu Gallery from San Francisco, Joel Cooner Gallery from Dallas, Finnegan Gallery from Chicago, Arader Galleries, Carlton Hobbs, Mallett, and Kentshire from New York, Janice Paull from Portmao, Portugal, Didier Ltd. and Susan Ollemans Oriental Art from London, England, Georg Jensen Antiques from Copenhagen, Denmark and Galerie Steinitz from Paris with its always captivating boiserie room.
