Winter antiquity celebrated for 60th time

January 15, 2014 by  

Later this month, the Winter Antiques Show will be returning to New York City for its 60th year.

The event will feature antiques dating as far back as the Roman Empire, all the way up to items made during the 1960s. There will be 73 exhibitors, and guests will have the opportunity to view the wares they are showcasing and even purchase them. Many of the artifacts are from America, but there will also be dealers specializing in Asian, European, and specifically English pieces.

On Thursday, January 23, there will be a kick-off party for the festival held between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Then, on January 30, there will be another party at which guests are welcome to attend. It is called the Young Collectors Night and will allow those interested to rub shoulders with other antique collectors and dealers. Guests will also be able to meet some of the most famous interior designers in New York City.

The antiques show runs from January 24 until February 2. Admission is $25, and the admission fee includes a catalog of the works on display. Organizers for the event will likely need to turn to a brochure or catalog printing company in order to create enough of these for all of the people planning to attend the event throughout its duration.

The show is held in the Park Avenue Armory, centrally located in Manhattan. It is a fairly easy point to reach from Long Island City and other parts of New York.
