New York, New York

Our selected consignment for the 2018 New York Winter Antiques Show was packed and shipped at the beginning of December and has arrived safely. We follow it over tomorrow and our set-up work begins first thing on Sunday Morning. 

We select pieces for these exhibitions with great care, over the period of a year, in an attempt to curate an exciting and well balanced installation, that represents the best examples of European Vernacular Furniture and Folk Art that we can source. 

It is wonderful to begin the year at such an historic and well attended show, the longest standing and most venerable in the USA, and it is an honour to have been invited to participate for the past eighteen years. 

During this time we have made some great friends and clients in New York, many of whom travel a long way to visit the show. In a world where the internet and digital images are playing an increasing role in our professional lives, it is a pleasure to meet and chat with them in person and to view, discuss and handle the works we show.

So we hope to meet many of you, regular visitors and old friends, again soon and to greet new clients and visitors over the next couple of weeks. The Show opens on Friday 19th January, (with a Charity Preview on the Evening of Thursday 18th January), then open daily through until Sunday 28th January.

Exciting!

Robert and Josyane.
