Preview of 62nd Annual Winter Antiques Show

62nd Winter Antiques Show 2016

As the first major antiques fairs of the year, the Winter Antiques Show jump starts the collecting fervor every January. Keeping in step with the ever evolving world of collecting, the 62nd Winter Antiques Show has added a dozen new exhibitors to its already impressive mix. Of this year’s 73 exhibitors, a total of 19 hail from outside the United States. Considered the premier fair for historic art and design in the U.S., the renowned fair, whose vetted offerings rival those of its European peers TEFAF in Maastricht and Masterpiece London, has recognized the growing demand for contemporary art and design.

With a few changes to the show’s standards, contemporary items will be on display alongside the more traditional antiques, only after surviving a stringent vetting process. For instance, all post-1969 material is subject to prior approval and onsite vetting while all living artists must be represented in a minimum of three major museums or other public collections. The strict rules maintain the high standards of the show that collectors have long trusted. The juxtaposition of collectibles both old and new brings an exciting eclecticism to the venerable fair.

Art and design developments aside, the jewelry segment remains largely unchanged. The jewelry exhibitors at the show are among the top purveyors of the rare and one-of-a-kind jeweled masterpieces in the world and include: A La Vieille Russie, Kentshire, Macklowe Gallery, James Robinson, S. J. Shrubsole and Wartski. Here is a sneak peek of the jewelry selection at this year’s Winter Antiques Show.

    The Kentshire gold and jade ring looks very like Donald Trump in profile. It might be a suitable souvenir for the right person.
