England is in the air! Kick off the week of Winter Antiques in Charleston with Mitch Owens, Architectural Digest’s Editor of Decorative Arts for a fun filled romp through the style and collections of Queen Elizabeth II’s father, King George VI. A lively gallop through this regent’s homes including Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and Carlton House will look at his furniture, china, and art selections. A perfect way to lead in to Winter Antiques Show events as Historic Charleston prepares to welcome Peer of the Realm, the 12th Duke of Shrafesbury later this week!

The lecture is free to all. The reception is $10 members and $20 for non-members. No door admittance can be accommodated. Please RSVP by clicking here.

This lecture is made possible by a grant from South Carolina Humanities.
