The Park Avenue Winter Antiques Show

The Park Avenue Winter Antiques Show is one of my favorite events. It's worth visiting just to see some of the period Aesthetic Movement rooms. The building is in the process of being restored, but I love it as is.

The loan exhibition this year was done by Historic Charleston Foundation which included one of my favorite Charleston paintings:
Portrait of Mrs. Robert Gilmor, Jr by Thomas Sully, 1823 

 Most of the dealers are amazing, these three were my favorites:

Antique photography from Hans P. Kraus, Jr. Fine Photographs

These amazing vintage lamps from Liz O'Brien

and my favorite dealer, Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz with her amazing antique wallpaper.


  1. I can't believe that photograph was there! amazing.

  2. yes- and that photo of it crops it- it was even better in person- can't believe I forgot to tell you about it
