58th Annual Winter Antiques Show

The 2012 Winter Antiques Show, held at the Park Street Armory in Manhattan, celebrated its 58th year this January 20-29. This most prestigious of American antiques and art shows featured seventy-five exhibitors showing the “best of the best,” from antiquities to the 1960s. While the majority of exhibitors specialize in American art, furniture, and decorative arts, renowned dealers of English, European, Asian, tribal, and material from antiquities share the floor. The energy was lively and sales were strong across the board, from 20th-century mobiles by Alexander Calder and Wharton Esherick wagon wheel chairs, to paintings, pottery, furniture, folk art, a Greek bronze horse, and rare illuminated manuscript.
Events included a gala opening night party, young collectors night, VIP tours, expert lectures and book signings, and a loan exhibit featuring Historic Hudson Valley. All net proceeds from sponsors, special events, and ticket sales support East Side House Settlement, a non-profit in the South Bronx providing social services to community residents.

This weekend could be the first time so many of Charleston's finest antiques were crated up and shipped North since the end of the Civil War.

But this time, it's about prestige -- not plunder.

The Historic Charleston Foundation has assembled 70 paintings, ceramics, pieces of furniture, jewelry and metalwork to be featured later this month at the 57th Annual Winter Antiques Show in New York.

The exhibit, expected to be seen by about 25,000 collectors and enthusiasts from around the world, will be novel because it will feature several pieces that have not been previously displayed in public.

Brandy Culp, a curator with the foundation, helped assemble the exhibition and will give one of five lectures about it during the show.

"The point of the exhibit is the level of sophistication and craftsmanship you see in the city from the 18th to the early 19th centuries," she said. "Charleston is known for its consumer base that was very interested in having the latest fashion from abroad."

The exhibit marks only the second time in 17 years that the Winter

Antiques Show's featured collection comes from the South -- and the first time that it comes from a collaboration of institutions, she said.
