FrontRunners: Old Times

A circa-1670 ebony-and-gilt clock crafted by the British maker Conyers Dunlop should be one of the more coveted items at Haughton International Fairs’ International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show (www.haughton.com), at the Park Avenue Armory in Midtown Manhattan from October 16 through 22. The clock, which has glazed sides that reveal its inner workings, will be offered by London’s Raffety & Walwyn (www.antique-clocks-and-barometers.com), one of more than 60 exhibitors expected at this year’s fair. Attendees of the October 15 preview gala (tickets start at $200) will have early access to the show’s offerings.
