Yesterday Gary and I visited the Winter Antiques Show, now in its 62nd year, at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City. The Winter Antiques Show features the “best of the best” from Antiquity through the present and provides collectors, curators, dealers, and design professionals with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by over 70 exhibitors. The Show’s exhibitors are specialists in Americana, English, European, and Asian fine and decorative arts.
The Winter Antiques Show is also an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx. At East Side House, programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. Revenues from the show’s general admissions and the net proceeds from the preview parties and other events go East Side House and contribute to its private philanthropic budget.
As I wandered through the show, I snapped items that I found interesting and have assembled them here for your viewing pleasure:
