Christina Cripe is standing next to a pair of beautiful botanical prints. Her husband purchased them for her from the Antiques Show, before the separate Antiques and Modernism shows merged, likely about 2007. Christina says “He bought them for me after I admired them, as we had wandered through the show, which happened to fall on the weekend of my birthday. I love them because I think they are so graceful and elegant, and they were one of the first things I hung in our current home when we moved in 2 years ago.”
Connie Yonan bought these from dealer Trace Mayer. She says “I love them! They are next to my mirror in the front and look fabulous. Every year I buy one or two more!! I get tons of compliments!!”
