After visiting the main building of the Furukawa Art Museum, a staff member who was bringing an item to the Annex building was kind enough to show me the way and chat a bit. She took me though a shortcut and introduced the building and explaining that there was an antiques exibit that I might be interested in. As someone who loves old architecture and the art deco period in particular, I was more than happy to check it out.
The house-turned-museum is absolutely breathtaking. But for me, the antiques on display were even more so. There were household items, like glassware and flatware, as well as jewlery and handbags.
The best part though was being able to speak to an antiques specialist, who explained the history of some of the items that I was particularly interested in.
The exibit called Esprit Antique, hosted by Hideko Kitamura, is running until 6/28 (Sun) and contains 85 pieces.
