  • An antiques show at the Medford Armory this weekend will feature antiques and collectibles by dealers from five states.
    Among the items on display are turn-of-the-century oak and walnut furnishings, kitchen and country primitives, Victorian colored and art glass, and American art pottery.
    Other items include sterling silver and silver-plate flatware and hollowware, estate and costume jewelry, watches, fine porcelains and china, toys and dolls, American folk art, paper collectibles (including prints, maps, magazines and books), quilts, clothing, textiles, slot machines and gambling-related items.
    Special services and exhibits will include a display of vintage quilts by Michelle Martin of Grandma's attic, Grants Pass; Doll appraisals by Nancy Korsak of Nurse Nancy's Doll Hospital, Spokane, Wash.; quality repair of damaged glass and china by Philip Lang of Chip Off The Old Block, Dallas, Ore.; and demonstrations of furniture restoration, jewelry and silver cleaning by Bob Hallam of E-Z Way Restoration, Burlington, Wash.
    The show benefits Dogs For the Deaf, a group that rescues dogs from shelters and helps people with deafness and other physical and mental challenges. Volunteers from the organization will be present, giving demonstrations and providing information on their service to dogs and the disabled community.
    A drawing for an antique doll, donated by Nurse Nancy's Doll Hospital, will benefit Dogs For The Deaf. Demonstrations by service dogs will take place at noon and 2 p.m. Saturday and at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
    Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $4. For more information, contact Twin Bridges Antique Productions at 530-241-4063 or online at www.tbcashows.info.
