    From Scandanavian ceramics and Suffragette Brooches to cutlery designed by Salvador Dali the  Winter Antiques Show now underway at the Park Avenue Armory at 67th St. in Manhattan offers a vast array of antiques and collectibles.  The images here and on the post on on January 3, 2013, give some idea of the range.  There are 73 exhibitors this year.  A loan exhibition is entitled “Newport: The Glamour of Ornament,” with objects from eight Newport homes installed in a pavilion modelled on the Vanderbilt residents The Breakers.  The show continues until February 3.
