The Antiques + Modernism Winnetka show, at the Winnetka Community Center, opens this weekend, November 8th at 10 AM and continues until Sunday at 4 PM. We’ve been buying up a storm, so here’s a preview.
We’re bringing a very strong selection of glass and lamps to the show. The American section includes some important Tiffany Favrile vases, as well as a great selection of Tiffany Studios lamps.
I’ve had good luck recently buying about 25 great Tiffany Studios desk pieces, mainly Grapevine, Pine Needle and Ninth Century. I’ll have them all at the show. (BTW, Tiffany desk set items make great Christmas presents. If you don’t see what you want, ask me, because I don’t have the time to list all the items I have for sale.)
The French selection of cameo and pâte-de-verre glass is among the best we’ve had in years. We’re bringing everything we bought on our recent European buying trip. We’ll have a vast selection of Daum and Gallé, as well as some pate-de-verre by Walter and Argy-Rousseau. I don’t have the time to photograph and list all the items, so you’ll just have to make it your business to visit us in person at the show. You’ll thank me!
The show ends on Sunday, so look for my blog next Monday with the results. Got my fingers crossed it will go well. I’m cautiously optimistic.
No shows until May when we’ll exhibit at the Chicago Antiques + Art + Design show at the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago. It’s a beautiful show in a wonderful venue. The dates are May 14-17, 2020. So put it on your calendar and make plans to visit. You’ll thank me.
