The 15th Annual Los Angeles Antiques Show will be held next week, April 21-25, 2010, at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Air Center. The show has developed a reputation as the finest show in the greater Los Angeles area. What the show lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. The list of exhibitors is impressive, with a few new big names, including Bernard Steinitz of Paris, specializing in 17th to 19th century European furniture and decorative arts. London dealers are also well-represented in the show, making it truly an international event.
I once railed about the lack of a singular important show in the greater Los Angeles area, and was told by a client, that this is the one. The quality will be ultra-high and the merchandise vetted, insuring that the public will be treated to a special event. This will be my first time exhibiting there and I’m excited about the prospect. It’s difficult to get the right people to attend a show in the Los Angeles area, so a special show is what’s needed, and this one fills the bill. The notable list of supporters of the show includes celebrities David Arquette, Courteney Cox and Tobey Maguire.
The Los Angeles Antiques Show is open to the general public from April 22-25, 2010. Show hours are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $15 and includes return entry and show catalog.
Look for my post on the results of the show on Monday or Tuesday, April 26 or 27. I’ve got my fingers crossed it will be a rave review.
I’m taking a lot of time to add new items to my website. In the last few days I’ve added to the Gallé glass and Icart etchings listings. Please take a look, as every day I’m adding more. Click on this link chasenantiques.com.
Please send me your suggestions or questions about art glass, lamps, Louis Icart, shows, auctions, etc. If it’s interesting, I’ll answer your question in a future blog.
