The Collector’s Show – 021714

If you think that everything there is to discover in the way of historic artifacts about Americana have been found and are sitting in the Smithsonian, think again. Brian Witherell is an expert on Americana and artifacts from the old west. Brian Witherell has a bachelor of arts degree from Sonoma State University and has been actively involved in the antiques industry as a dealer, auctioneer and appraiser since youth. With his father Brad, he operates a gallery in Sacramento, California, specializing in investment-grade firearms, western Americana, and 19th-century American furniture. They are both involved with many benevolent organizations concerned with the education and connoisseurship of American art and antiques and have lectured and published authoritative books in their respective fields.
