The AVENUE Antiques at the Armory show opens this Thursday, September 22, 2011 and runs until Sunday

I have less time to write about the interesting things happening in the antiques world since the fall shows started, so I am posting new blog entries once or twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. 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.

The AVENUE show will be open September 22-25, 2011

The AVENUE Antiques at the Armory show is one of New York City’s finest antique shows. This will be my first time there. I visited the show last spring and it looked great. Check back on Monday and I’ll let you know how I did. In the meantime, I’ve got my fingers crossed.

If you follow my blog, you know that we’ve been working hard to bring you the finest selection of antiques we’ve ever brought to a show. Some of the new items that we’ve just acquired are a great selection of Tiffany lamps, including a Dragonfly, a Tulip, a Pansy and a 10-light lily.

In French glass, we’ll be bringing the best Daum boudoir lamp ever; a Daum scenic blownout vase; a gorgeous Gallé blue floral vase and several wonderful miniature Daum vases, including a rare rain scenic.

The show opens on Wednesday evening, with a preview party (always my favorite, UGH!). The one at the LA Antiques Show was good, so maybe I shouldn’t be such a skeptic. There will be plenty of competition at the show, so hopefully there will be enough motivated buyers to go around. Wish me luck!

Check my website daily this week. I’ll be photographing all my new Gallé and Daum purchases and listing them on my website. Recently I listed quite a few Tiffany, Handel and Pairpoint lamps and some very rare Louis Icart etchings including Melody Hour and Mardi Gras. There are also several fine Daum vases; a Daum lamp; several Galle vases; and several more Tiffany Favrile vases. Coming soon will be several wonderful European ceramic items by Clement Massier, Zsolnay and Amphora. Here’s the link.
