    The 65th edition of New York’s winter antiques show, renamed this year as The Winter Show because this is how everyone refers to it, runs at the Park Avenue Armoury from January 18-27.   The range is from ancient art, antiquity through to the classical and the contemporary.  Around 70 leading US and European dealers will attend New York’s longest running antiques fair.  The show reflects the current trend towards cross collecting and in the past two years contemporary design has been allowed in the show.  This can be seen alongside the best examples of period furniture. The focus is on quality, all items are vetted and there is a thrust this year to attract new young collectors.  Here are some special antique furniture examples:
