chair Antiques at the Armory, January 22 23 24

I am going to take a day off from the day job and head to NYC for this year’s Antiques at the Armory show on Friday the 22nd. I’m going to pop by to meet Joan Bogart who will be exhibiting at the show.  It has been long overdue that I get to meet Joan in person and am looking forward to the trip.

Joan has told me that she’ll be bringing some Victorian antiques along, so I can be confident that it will be worth my while.  It won’t be one of those shows that eschews Victoriana or hides it in a corner somewhere in the back next to the restrooms.  Heck, in Philly-area shows, there are No Victorian antiques at shows.  I think they frisk the dealers on the way in to make sure that no Rococo, Eastlake or Renaissance Revival makes it in the door.

Joan will bringing the above Centripetal Chair, ca. 1849, made by Thomas Warren for American Chair, Co., as well as the other items in the photos below.

John,
You might want to go by the Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory, 67th and Park Ave. David Parker always has a wonderful booth with Herter.
Saturday there is Americana and Antiques at the Pier, Pier 92.
Sotheby’s and Christies tend to not have Victorian in there corresponding Americana Week sales, even high end stuff. Bonhams does have some pieces to preview.

LOL @ ” Heck, in Philly-area shows, there are No Victorian antiques at shows. I think they frisk the dealers on the way in to make sure that no Rococo, Eastlake or Renaissance Revival makes it in the door.”

Different shows, different tastes, different stuff. Yeah, Joan is one of the most respected victorian dealers in the nation, neat that you will meet her and get to drool over her stuff.

Museum quality dealer no doubt.

John Alexander is a regular exhibitor at the Philadelphia Antiques Show… while the English Arts & Crafts Movement may not be your cup of tea, it is “Victorian.”
