    WINTER ANTIQUES SHOW SIGNALS A CHANGE IN LINE WITH MARKET TRENDS

    Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

    THE global definition of antiques in changing in line with international market trends.  The venerable Winter Antiques Show in New York, which runs from January 22 to 31 with a preview evening on January 21, is allowing certain contemporary objects.

    The 1969 dateline has been discarded at the show, now in its 62nd season.  Among the 18th and 19th century furniture and collectibles can be found pre-vetted contemporary works.  These are only allowed under stringent regulation. It is stipulated, amongst other things, that an artist or designer whose work is included must be represented in major museum collections.  This is the premier American fair, and it is regarded as both conservative and traditional.   Most of the 73 exhibitors, if they choose to include modern items, will weave them among more traditional pieces. This is in line with contemporary interior design, which does not observe strict datelines and often combines antique and contemporary pieces. Here are some items from the show:
