    Treasure Chest Thursday: Sneak Peek at The Heirloom Roadshow SCGS Edition


    Vintage flapper dresses, antique silver, and century-old handcrafts are among the treasures that will be showcased next week at the Heirloom Roadshow, SCGS Jamboree Edition in Burbank, California. I can't wait to see these treasures up close.

    Anyone who was Anyone wanted to look like a Hollywood starlet in the Roaring 20's, and Betty Shubert has the dresses to prove it. She was gifted with four beautiful beaded flapper dresses that once belonged to the Farber daughters, heiresses to the Farberware Company legacy and fortune. The glitter on these dresses truly rivals the sparkle of Farber's legendary stainless-steel cookware.

    We will be looking to antiques expert Joseph Baratta of Abell Auction Company in Los Angeles to give us more insight into these unique treasures, and I will be sharing preservation tips with Betty for protecting the fragile fabric and decoration.

    There will be more sparkle at the Heirloom Roadshow with colonial-era silver and a collection of shiny handmade Ukranian Easter Eggs, or pysanky. Join us Sunday, June 8, 2014 at the Southern California Genealogy Society 2014 Jamboree for the Heirloom Roadshow at 10:30 am 10 am to 11:30 am [note revised time].
