The 61st Winter Antiques Show Kicks Off January 23

  • Sheila Gibson Stoodley

The Winter Antiques Show returns to Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory from January 23 to February 1 for its 61st installment. Long known for the strength of its Americana offerings, the exhibit’s range grows even wider with this year’s offerings, which include a gaily painted corner cupboard ($65,000) from circa 1863 offered by Kelly Kinzle of New Oxford, Penn., and a Queen Anne block-front chest of drawers ($110,000) dating to 1750 or so in the booth of Bernard & S. Dean Levy of New York. Aronson of Amsterdam will have a recently reunited pair of large (17.5 inches) Delft figures from circa 1690 that depict King William and Queen Mary ($950,000), and Throckmorton Fine Art of New York will have pre-Columbian treasures including a tiny (3.5 inch) Mayan Middle Classic mosaic mask ($250,000), dating to 600 to 900 AD and fashioned from jade, and a green marble Teotihuacan mask ($175,000) with a carved, stepped pyramid motif from 250 to 450 AD.
