Winter Antiques Show 2016
We were thrilled to return as exhibitors to the Winter Antiques Show 2016 this January. The Winter Antiques Show is always a very elegant affair and every exhibitor does an amazing job with their display. This year the Winter Antiques Show opened up their time line, which allowed exhibitors to showcase works after 1969 and it was fun to see some more modern and contemporary works mixed in. We created a European Kunstkammer with a cabinet by Joseph Maria Olbrich as the centerpiece. We highlighted the cabinet with a pair of very elegant French Art Deco sconces by Sue et Mare on each side. We also showcased an “Arabesque” iron door / gate by Edgar Brandt, with a seating area that consisted of an Austrian Art Deco table, a pair of Austrian Empire / Biedemeier Revival chairs and a lamp by Gustav Gurschner. The paintings that we exhibited were an “Abstract” by the German born, American artist Michiel Gloeckner and a “Weimar” Portrait by the Chicago artist Isobel Steele MacKinnon. We also brought a dramatic painting entitled “Eight” by the New York artist Knox Martin from 1958. We also featured a sculptural pair of bronze candelabra from 1905 by Clara Hill. Decorative arts on view were our favorites by Dr. Christopher Dresser, Archibald Knox, Josef Hoffmann, Edmond Lachenal, Zsolnay Art Pottery and Max Laeuger among others. A big showstopper and an area that proved to be always mobbed with interested people was our extensive jewelry display! We hope you enjoy our photos of our booth at the Winter Antiques Show and the jewelry case close-ups and please don’t hesitate to be in touch with any questions you may have.
