My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday. This Monday’s blog, with the results of the Original Miami Beach Antique Show, will be postponed until Tuesday, as the show ends on Monday.
The Original Miami Beach Antique Show opens to the public today, Thursday, January 31, 2013, at noon, and continues until Monday, February 4, 2013, at 6 PM. Not sure why the show ends on a Monday, but it’s not my decision. Makes more sense to begin on a Wednesday and end on a Sunday.
The show is looking great, with amazing quantity and quality. Many dealers exhibit at this show who rarely exhibit at other shows. I can’t think of another show that attracts dealers and collectors from so many countries. I’ve seen dealers from England, France, Argentina, Italy, Germany and of course, all over the US. Dealers and collectors fly in from all over the entire globe to shop this show. It’s a real happening.
My booth is bursting with not only the most I’ve ever brought, but the best quality I’ve ever brought. For instance, take a look at the big, fabulous Gallé Lake Como vase that I bought yesterday. It’s truly spectacular. The two 14″ Tiffany Studios Dragonfly lamps look great next to the new Handels, Pairpoints and other Tiffany lamps. I’ve got way more than I can describe in this blog. It’s not too late to make plans to come to the show. Come on down, enjoy the weather, eat in the great restaurants and shop the best antique show of the entire year!
I will be posting videos on YouTube of my lecture on French Cameo Glass to the Metropolitan Glass Club. I need some time to edit the videos. When they’re ready, I’ll put the link on my website and here in my blog.
Click this link to view some of the new objects I recently purchased and listed. Tiffany glass for sale. We always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on our website and at every show.
Look around my website. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. I regularly add Tiffany vases, lamps and desk accessories, as well as French cameo glass by Galle and Daum Nancy and etchings by Louis Icart. Here’s the link. Philip Chasen Antiques.
