The WAS aka Winter Antiques Show 2016

Charles HammellComment

The Winter Antiques Show on Park Avenue has come and gone. I am late posting about this terrific show due to Blizzard Jonas which dumped over 20" of snow on the entire mid Atlantic region on January 23, 2016. I shoveled valiantly for a total of seven hours,but, was not able to venture to the Big City to visit my colleagues the opening weekend. And so, after hosting a baby shower in Times Square for our long awaited grandbaby the following weekend, Charlie and I finally managed to make a break for the Park Avenue Armory and take a look around the Winter Antiques Show. Below is a sampling of items at the show:

Charlie made a beeline to the back of Pat Bell and Edwin Hild's impressive booth.

So cool! A fireman's trumpet from Kensington, Philadelphia, PA - Kelly Kinzle

A booth full of Grandma Moses. Every bit as impressive as the Bennigton Museum's collection of Grandma Moses paintings. I am sorry to say, I failed to record the dealer's name.

Charlie loved this booth. The decorator managed to simulate a NYC apartment with well lit views of the city through faux windows.
