Antique Treasure Show recap: Art by Dali and Matisse, plus Tiffany vase assessed at weekend event

A 1962 Salvador Dali limited edition print, another by Henri Matisse, and a Tiffany carnival glass vase were among the curious objects revealed, reviewed, and assessed at last weekend’s Antique Treasure Show.

Saturday’s event, presented by Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites, welcomed dozens of guests to the common grounds lawn behind the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem where some of their most curious objects were evaluated.

"While hearing what the appraisers had to say was fun, one of the things that makes this event so compelling is hearing the amazing stories behind the artifacts from the owners themselves," said Brett Peters, HBMS Curator of Collections and Exhibitions.

Master of Ceremonies Bruce Palmer introduced and guided the sunny event, as a team of expert appraisers including Heino Koberg from Saucon Valley Auction, Richard Hartzell from Hartzell's Auction Gallery, and Searchlight Auction conducted walk-in and in-depth analyses of a collection of hidden treasures.
