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.
If you missed my lecture on French Cameo Glass this past Tuesday at St. Michael’s Church, you missed a good one. But fear not, because my son, Billy, recorded my lecture and is working on combining it with my PowerPoint presentation. When it’s done, it will be posted on YouTube in sections. My lecture started with the basics and continued to the most advanced techniques. It will be important reference material for anyone interested in French cameo glass.
The NYC Pier Antiques Show opens this Saturday, November 17, 2011, at 10 AM and continues until Sunday, November 18, 2012, at 6 PM. There was some concern after Hurricane Sandy that the show might have to be cancelled or postponed, but the Pier was put back into shape quickly, so the show will go on (a New York Broadway tradition!). Stella Show Management did a great job making sure everything was set.
Because the show is only two days long, it’s more intense than many longer shows. There’s more action because people have to make up their minds faster, or the items they were considering may be gone. The selection of items for sale is very eclectic, from silver, jewelry, Asian, ceramics, art, and vintage clothing to glass and lamps (me and several other dealers). The show is so important that many buyers fly in from all over the world, including as far away as Japan. My booth is near the entrance, so you can’t miss me.
I’m bringing an incredible selection of fresh merchandise, including wonderful French cameo glass, Tiffany glass and lamps and much more. You will enjoy the show, so make your plans, even if they’re last minute. The Big Apple awaits you!
Click this link to view some of the new objects I recently purchased. I recently listed over 25 new items. French 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.
