Bucks County Antiques Dealers Association
On-Going Education

On December 29, 14 masked members of the BCADA invaded the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA and the museum did not disappoint. The museum was created and completed by gentleman Anthropologist, Henry Mercer, in 1916. It preserves artifacts of preindustrial life collected by Mr. Mercer. The building is seven stories tall in parts and cast of poured-in concrete. In addition to tools, it displays furnishings of early America including carriages, stove plates, a gallows, fire engines, a whaleboat, the Lenape Stone, primitives, clocks, musical instruments, advertising signs, and more. It was quite the educational experience that everyone should see. Have a happy New Year!

Three certified appraisers from the Bucks County Antiques Dealers Asociation conducted their second 'Appraisal Day' at the Newtown Presbyterian church on Sunday, September 25, 2011. There were many beautiful and interesting items there including some sterling silverware, 19th century original oil paintings, vintage Chinese terra cotta figurals, 19th century mantle clocks, Roseville bowls, and more. The appraisers from the club were Dan Worden, Ashley King, and Bill D'Anjolell who all enjoyed the patrons and there special items. The church expects to make this an annual event."

Four BCADA members performed an 'Appraisal Day' at the Newtown Presbyterian Church on Sunday, September 26. Members - Dan Worden, Ashley King, Dana Balsamo, and Bill D'Anjolell appraised 121 items for three hours and 45 minutes non-stop among a full audience with mostly happy patrons. Many beautiful items were on hand. There was silver, artwork, clocks, textiles, glass, china, sports memorabilia, and other items. Highlights included a large brass chandelier worth $1,800 retail and a German World War II dress dagger worth $750 retail. A splendid time was had by all.
