Event Description

The excitement of the Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show continues at Woodford Mansion, home to one of the country’s greatest collections of Colonial antiques. From Wednesday, April 19th through Sunday, April 23rd, Woodford Mansion’s tour guides will highlight some of the most significant and unique antiques in the collection. Don’t miss the story of the rare delft punch bowl with a Loyalist inscription, which is on display at Philadelphia’s new Museum of the American Revolution. It is the perfect complement to the 2017 Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show’s patriotic theme and loan exhibit, “What So Proudly We Hail.”

 

Built in 1756, Woodford Mansion is one of the most elegant survivors of the group of early “country seats” built along the Schuylkill River. The rooms of the mansion are filled with items from the Naomi Wood Antiques Collection: furniture, portraits, miniatures, household items, luxury wares, and delftware, that bring to life the stories of the well-to-do Colonial residents of Woodford Mansion. Woodford Mansion is open for guided tours Wednesday through Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
