Winter Antiques Show, 2018

Charles HammellComment

The Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City struck me as particularly stunning this year. Stephen Score's booth at the entrance was captivating, as was Elle Shushan's jewel box of a booth. David Schorsch's full court press of outstanding pieces were a knock out and there were many red stickers there. Olde Hope Antiques is a reliable source for over the top collector's pieces. Nathan Liverant & Son's booth was overflowing with show attendees. I was so busy talking to Kelly Kinzle, I forgot to snap a shot of his outstanding Reading, PA cabinet, entirely covered with exquisite marquetry. The Show continues until Sunday, January 28.
