When the doors of the prestigious Winter Antiques Show opened at the Park Avenue Armory on January 23, 2015, David A. Schorsch and Eileen M. Smiles celebrated their fourteenth year of exhibiting with a new, larger booth and for the first time offering historic and aesthetic mineral specimens in addition to fine American antiques. The minerals and native elements (gold, silver and copper) have been selected for their merit as natural works of art and historic associations. Beginning with European royalty and aristocrats and then gilded age American millionaires, mineral collecting has evolved into a worldwide market of connoisseurs for mineral specimens exhibiting a beauty and perfection uniquely created by natures. The minerals on offer will range from tiny diamonds to a large and impressive Rhodochrosite. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory, The Winter Antiques Show runs through February 1, 2015,

The gallery of David A. Schorsch and Eileen M. Smiles is located at 358 Main Street South in Woodbury, Connecticut. Telephone: 203 263-3131. For additional information please visit the website:

Offering an abundant array of extraordinary works, the 59th Annual Winter Antiques Show, January 25-February 3, 2013, is a showcase for collectors and enthusiasts alike. The seventy-three exhibitors have brought rare and aesthetically striking material from ancient Greece and Rome through to the modern period. Visitors will see exquisite works of art by leading artists such as John Singer Sargent and James Buttersworth, fine jewelry and portrait miniatures, elegant traditional furniture with classic design or fanciful painted surfaces nearby modern furniture by leaders in their field such as Wendell Castle. The variety of material is evident when booths that face one another hold within whimsical examples of folk art or elegantly engraved suits of armor. This is a fully vetted show and is unsurpassed in America.

This year's loan exhibit, "Newport: The Glamour of Ornament," features collections from the Preservation Society of Newport County. Primary among the art is Giovanni Boldiniā€™s Elizabeth Drexel Lehr (1905), whose crimson gown captivates all who see her (and is also the cover of our 13th Anniversary issue).
