Palatine society to host antiques show

CANAJOHARIE — The Palatine Settlement Society’s annual antiques show and sale, to benefit the 1747 Nellis Tavern, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 2 at the Arkell Museum.

The antique show will feature major examples of American art, many of which were donated by the founder of Beechnut, Bartlett Arkell.

The dealers will offer a range of antique and vintage items, including china and glassware, jewelry, books and ephemera, paintings and furniture. The appraisal booth provides the opportunity for attendees to have their items appraised. For $5 per item, George Heigel will provide appraisals.

The society will offer a variety of homemade soups, sandwiches and desserts to purchase for lunch. The admission to the show remains at $5. For more information, call (518) 842-6400 or e-mail [email protected]

The society was formed in 1983, to prevent the demolition of the Nellis Tavern, Route 5, St. Johnsville. The trustees are overseeing projects to restore the interior as it would have looked mid 1830s.
