Cogels-Osy Lei, an Art Nouveau street in Antwerp, Belgium

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.

A day trip to Antwerp, Belgium, led to a wonderful street, Cogels-Osy Lei. It appears that the entire street was built within a single decade, right at the height of the Art Nouveau movement, approximately 1895-1905.

The street is beautiful, with more than a handful of Art Nouveau homes, characterized by curvilinear lines, especially in the ironwork. Assymmetry is another Art Nouveau characteristic, but only one of the buildings exhibited this.

Back to New York this weekend with some very fine vases and objects we purchased on our trip. More about that next week.


baltimore-8-2016Our next show will be the eagerly anticipated Baltimore Summer Antiques Show, August 25-28, 2016. It’s the best show of the summer and maybe now the best of the year (with all the changes coming this winter in Miami). People fly in from all over the world to attend, including from as far away as Japan. If you haven’t yet visited, you should. It’s big, with some of the best national and international dealers. You’ll also enjoy Baltimore. Hope to see you there!

In the meantime, we’re very much in business, as witnessed by the 10 or more new vases I just listed (and more coming every day). Call or email me with your wants or items for sale. If you have what I’m looking for, I’m paying the highest prices. My decisions are quick and my payments just as quick. Just snap a photo and email it to me.

I always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on my website and at every show. I will continue to list more as often as possible. Please click here to take a look.There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. And remember to keep reading my blog.
