  • Antique and estate jewelry
  • Furniture
  • American and European silver
  • Asian antiquities
  • Porcelain

Guide For First Time Attendees

While the Samuelson’s Diamonds team has been attending the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show for years, this will be our first time showing off our collection of antique and estate jewelry. If you’re attending for the first time, here’s what you should know:

  • Make a Plan – Review the exhibitors list and make a list of those you definitely don’t want to miss. Don’t forget to come see us at booth #1509.
  • Be Ready to Walk – The convention hall is huge, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes.
  • Don’t Overdo It – The Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show is a 4-day event for a reason– it’s really, really big. Come back on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday rather than try to see it all in one day. Remember, your $20 ticket is good for all 4 days!
  • Don’t Forget About Other Events – Your general admission ticket is also valid for entrance into the Baltimore Fine Craft Show.
  • Have a Great Time Exploring Baltimore – Stop by Bo Brooks for crab cakes, have brunch at Miss Shirley’s, and take a tour of the Inner Harbor.

Don’t miss out on brunch at Miss Shirley’s– make sure to order the extra gooey Monkey Bread!

Don’t Miss M.S. Rau Antiques


With nearly 300 other exhibitors at the show, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention one of our favorites, M.S. Rau Antiques, an internationally known art and antiquities dealer based out of New Orleans (one of our other favorite cities!).

They’ll be bringing some incredible, museum quality paintings and pieces of art. I’m not sure exactly what they’ll have with them, but they are known for their collections of work by masters like Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh.

Make sure you stop by their booth and be prepared to be amazed!

See You There!

If you’re planning on attending the show, let us know! We can’t wait to see you there.
